    I'm working on a Winautomation script and I'm trying to find a way to grab the description from the source of each url and place it into an excel file. I can pull up the source with winautomation and a macro recording but dont know how to only grab the part shown in blue below.


    <meta name="description" content="Marketing and advertising articles and tips, thousands of companies and firms, careers and jobs, and more from the official American Marketing Association website." />

    Thanks

    Try using a regular expression, like:

    <meta name="description" content="(.*)" />

    Don't know much (anything) about Winautomation or if it'll let you do regex..
