I'm trying to make a script that copies the data from this page to the clip board then pastes it into an excel spreadsheet. While I can do that by just using x & y coords it doesn't make the program very portable. I was wondering if there is some way to select the data I need and select and click the text string "Next >" on the page in place of doing a mouse click x y.




So my question is: Is it possible to use a find text string within a firefox or ie browser and click the next button?

(note: the hyperlink for the next button is not static and there are an unknown amount of pages to scan. Only by scanning and not finding the text string "Next >" will this program know when to end it's main loop.)

The better way to do this would be URLDownloadToFile and a parsing loop. No clicking on the window, no pixel search, can be done without opening the site in your browser. If your interested post the link or send it to me in a PM.
