how do i do what i want to do?
i am back, once again with a question. i wish to create a web site or say a tool, that would make enable my pepole to get rid of the hassle of accessing data from our official web site.
we need to fetch data every day and the process is very very tedious and time consuming.
you need to login, arrange filter order, look for each agent record manually. i wish to make it all an automated process.
the only thing i do not know where to start and what to look for, i do not wish to create a full blown tool. just a tool that helps in fetching data and if possible the data be arranged in the Excel workbook.
we use excel 2000, and win 2000 sever and win2000.
Any ideas how to go about it.
thanks in advance

You could script it all together with perl. Use LWP::Simple to fetch the webpage, process it and use Win32::OLE to create an Excel sheet.

Activestate's ActivePerl is one of the best perl distributions for windows IMO.
