If you check Your variables a and b in variable overview, what values do they have?

The single quotes around $(a) and $(b) were already removed. If i add it, then it does not loop at all.

I think it will be easier for you to troubleshoot with the script:

For each a in '586','591','600','594','599','593','590';

For each b in 'Premier League 17/18','Bundesliga 17/18','La Liga 17/18','French Ligue 1 17/18','Eredivisie 17/18','Serie A 2017/18','Scottish Premiership 17/18';

[Tables]:

LOAD

# as [Pos],

     Clubs as [Team],

     P,

     W,

     D,

     L,

     F,

     A,

     GD,

     Points as [Pts],

     'League Table' as [Table Type]

FROM

[https://www.statbunker.com/competitions/LeagueTable?comp_id=$(a)]

(html, codepage is 1252, embedded labels, table is [$(b) League table]);

NEXT a;

NEXT b;

ok, a numeric value in for each should not have any singlequotes and will be expaned without $(a).

text values should have singlequotes around as in b, this should expand With '$(b)'.

As you can see a wont loop for you, b will as it contains Scottish.

Ok, i removed the 'a' and 'b' next to the "NEXT" function. It now loads all the tables, but it gives me errors in between:
