Desktop: Interface to get web data by example does not correctly interpolate parameters

Hi,

 

I've been working with the web site parser by example, and discovered that the example creator does not correctly interpolate parameters. I'm using version 2.62.5222.761 64-bit (September 2018)

 

I create a parameter called Category Page, and gave it a value:

 

2018-10-09 11_53_21-Untitled - Power Query Editor.png

 

I then try to import a web site:

 

2018-10-09 11_54_02-Untitled - Power Query Editor.png

 

This pops up the naviagtor with the correct page:

 

2018-10-09 11_53_04-Untitled - Power Query Editor.png

 

But clicking on the "Add table using examples" button opens up a completely different page:

 

2018-10-09 11_52_46-Untitled - Power Query Editor.png

 

This is now unusable, as I don't have the original data.

 

Using the URL as a text field rather than the parameter works as expected.
