R Question

Not able to entirely scrape HTML table using R

I've used the following R script:

check=readHTMLTable(url,header = T)
check$"Career summary"
check<-check$"Career summary"

I'm only able to scrape first 11 observations.

Can anyone suggest why i'm unable to scrape entire table?

AS @Wietze314 said there are more than one table on that page. You can get a list of all the table I suppose you are interested in with:



tableNodes <- getNodeSet(check, '//tbody')
tbList <- lapply(tableNodes, readHTMLTable)

tbList contains 22 data.frames for you to work with
