I want to scrape the text data from a table on a website. I have used urlfilter but this only scrapes numbers.

Use urlread() to get everything.

I don't have anything beyond urlread() for that. There is not going to be any built-in code that know exactly how your 200 web pages are laid out and how to extract the table from all the rest of the HTML code that is retrieved. There are billions of web pages out there and they just don't a page parser for all of them, or even yours. You're going to have to do that yourself.
