wizzo85,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

Reading the Help file (at least the first few sections - Using AutoIt, Tutorials and the first couple of References) will help you enormously. You should also look at this excellent tutorial - you will find other tutorials in the Wiki (the link is at the top of the page). This will give you a good idea of how AutoIt code is structured and save a lot of frustration later.

Once you are happy with AutoIt syntax, I suggest looking at the IE* functions (or the FF.au3 UDF if you use FireFox) to interact with the site. Once you have the information you can use FileWrite to create your file

That should give you enough to be going on with. You know where we are when you have more detailed questions. :)

P.S. And everyone here needs help - please can you use more descriptive thread titles in future. ;)

Edit: Honestly - this forum feature that is supposed to pop up and tell you about other posts while you are typing is about a much use as a chocolate fireguard! :mad:
