Scraping HTML Table

Thanks for the awesome software, I am really hoping it ca do what I am struggling with.

I am simply trying to take an HTML table, mine its data into my FMiner table, and from there insert that into my SQL server database. I have been able to scrape the 1st row of information from the HTML table, but for the life of me I can not work out how to make it scrape all the table rows!

Would someone be able to make a tutorial video, or give me some step by step instructions. Let's say I am wanting to mine the table on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_video_player_software

Scraping HTML Table

Thank you for the reply, it was very helpful!

Just a question about scheduling. Does FMiner need to be open for the schedule to run, or does this run as a service?
