    ...for this site www.mpiweb.org.

    It is running ASP I believe and it is hard to manually acquire all of the 'planners' from their database. The site requires a login, which I have and can make available.

    I need to scrape the planners'

    chapter, first name, last name, address, phone number, email

    for each record. Is there someone in here who can write a bot to do this?

    Many thanks

    Here is a link to screenshot of the type of page needing to be scraped which might be worth a thousand words...

    Hit up Patmiller, he's a bot guru.

    He also has a sales thread for bots here... he made me one and did an outstanding job in a timely manner for a decent price.
