    Ok, I am very new to data extraction from a website and to fill in a form on my own admin area on my site.

    Just need a few pointers or if someone knows of something I can edit, etc...

    Ok, I am wanting to go to hud home store website and copy data for real estate then past it in my own realty website. Its only a few lines of text. about 26 small lines of text. and then paste it in different fields on my site form, and also extract the image, or if possible the 4 or 5 images that are there. Some have only 1, some have a couple..

    Well, thats about it.. lol... So if anyone can help me come up with something, that would be great..

    Thanks in advance..

    Spikey

    Please, anyone have any ideas here.. I really need to try and figure this out. It seems I need to record it to a csv file, them use that file to fill in the new form, etc.. But still having troubles on how to do that, and also in a way to be able to extrasct all of the listings on the site.

    I have 6.9 scripting edition if that makes a difference..

    Please help...

    Thanks in advance,

    Spikey

    This should get you started:

    Code:
    wiki.imacros.net/Data_Extraction
    Also, your iMacros Scripting Edition should have the "imacros data extraction wizard", make use of it.

    Ok, I read a bunch of stuff.. lol.. Figured a few things out.. kinda.. However, after I went to the site, I found that they had a export function for most of all of the info I need for all of the 308 house listings.

    It exported it into excel, where I can change to CSV if i need to.

    Now my site does not have any type of import function. So I will still have to I guess use iMacros to paste it in all the forms. And did not really see anything for that.

    Also, is there a way to save the images for the houses? which I do have a specific listing # for each house. So is there a way to call up that # and save the image that is on that page? Just curious.. or would it be better to just do it all my self like how I was gonna do it?? lol..

    I know alot of questions, just want to do it right, and easy if possible.


    Thanks in advance,
