information pull from Web

I have to pull spec information off Dell's Support page. So far I have the script being able to input the query of Tag number and get the information that I need on the screen. This is done by Javascripts. What I need is to put the information into a Spreadsheet.

What I am missing is how to read the screen: I could select all, Copy and Paste into notepad, search for what I want and populate a file. Seems like there has to be a better way!

Look at the IE.au3 UDF. _IETableGetCollection() and _IETableWriteToArray() should help you with what you need.

Thank you, that helped alot....I'm just not there yet!

I found that it has 23 tables and that the table I need is table 14: I used _Arraydisplay to find it. Now as a newbie I need to access write this data to a CVS file..(or excel). how can I just write to file:

row[0,1],row[1,1],row[3,1] when I try:

#include <IE.au3>

#include <Array.au3>

$oIE = _IEcreate ("http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/my_systems_info/en/details?c=us&l=en&s=gen&~tab=2&~ck=ln&lnki=0")

$oTable = _IETableGetCollection ($oIE)

$iNumTables = @extended

MsgBox(0, "Table Info", "There are " & $iNumTables & " tables on the page")

$i = 14

$otable = _IETableGetCollection ($oIE, $i)

$aTableData = _IETableWriteToArray ($oTable)

_ArrayDisplay($aTabledata, "_ArrayDisplay() 2D Test", 1, 1)

MsgBox(0, "table Info", $i &" "& $aTableData)

In msg box I get nothing as I aspected: but if I use $atabledata[0,1] i get subscript error. I'm not seeing how to use it just yet.

Have a play with the help template, I had this last nite when I was learning the feature :)

#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IE_Example ("table")
$oTable = _IETableGetCollection ($oIE, 0)
$aTableData = _IETableWriteToArray ($oTable)
For $x = 0 to Ubound($aTableData,2)-1
    For $y = 0 To UBound($aTableData)-1
    MsgBox(0,"",$aTableData[$y][$x])
    Next
Next

IE Table --> Array --> CSV

#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IE_Example ("table")
$oTable = _IETableGetCollection ($oIE, 0)
$aTableData = _IETableWriteToArray ($oTable)
$sCSV = ""
For $i = 0 To UBound($aTableData, 2) - 1
    For $j = 0 To UBound($aTableData, 1) - 1
        $sCSV &= $aTableData[$j][$i]
        If $j < UBound($aTableData, 2) - 1 Then $sCSV &= ", "
    Next
    $sCSV &= @CR
Next
MsgBox(0, "CSV", $sCSV)
_IEQuit($oIE)
