I have written 2 macroes--macro2 and macro3 (below).

Macro2 works fine, but I need to manipulate the web address to
increment team numbers, hence macro 3.

After manipulating the web address, macro 3 errors out="error 1004:
The address of this site is not valid".

After studying this extensively, the web address in macro3 which is
"not valid" appears to be identical to the web address in macro2,
which works fine.

Can somebody tell me why macro3 doesn't work? Thank you. Code below:
..........................................................
Sub Macro2()

'ok so far, does all except the team number incrementation
'

'
With
ActiveSheet.QueryTables.Add(Connection:="URL;http://www.covers.com/pageLoader/pa\
geLoader.aspx?page=/data/ncb/teams/pastresults/2006-2007/team2174.html&t=0"
_
, Destination:=ActiveCell)
.Name = "team2174.html&t=0"
.FieldNames = True
.RowNumbers = False
.FillAdjacentFormulas = False
.PreserveFormatting = True
.RefreshOnFileOpen = False
.BackgroundQuery = True
.RefreshStyle = xlInsertDeleteCells
.SavePassword = False
.SaveData = True

ActiveCell.Rows("1:208").EntireRow.Select
Selection.Delete Shift:=xlUp
ActiveCell.Select

Sheets("Sheet1").Select
End Sub

Selection.Offset(1, -1).Select
Sheets("Sheet1").Select
Loop

End Sub
