    Hi,

    I need someone with a good knowledge of scraping data to scrape a site for me.

    It is a comercial website with a bunch of store addresses and store managers names. The information is organised on the site like this: full store list - then links to each town - then page with store address and managers name.

    I need the information in the following format excel spreadsheet with Managers Name, address line 1, address line 2, town, county, post code.

    I would think this is fairly straightforward for someone who has xrummer and knows there stuff.

    PM me.
    Thanks for reading

    Most likely he wants it in the format that he said he wanted it in.

    I now have someone to do this project, thank you to myshoeslace for responding so quickly. I will post up a quick review here when it is completed, it could be useful for others looking for some scraping work to be done.
