Go to the following link, enter a date in the last search criteria (must be a weekday and can not be today's date, data is historical). The last current data available is 1/16/2004 as of this writing because of a holiday on Monday, 1/19/2004. The data is usually only available for the previous weekday on the morning of the next day, i.e. Wednedays data is available on Thursday morning.
What I want to be able to do, and I'm not even sure if it is possible, is to build a spreadsheet out of each record so I can sort it by business name, owner name, etc. all of the data comes in a fixed length format but on separate lines and i need it all on ONE line to be able to this. Also, all the data may be on 3 or 4 pages rather than just the one you get which is usually 400 records long. Because of this, you have to keep hitting the button at the bottom which gives you the next 400 records and so on.
So, is there a way to do this, would the user have to "save" the page in order to do this OR is there a way to automate this entire process? Currently, we are going blind reading the darn things every day record by record.
Completely open to suggestions on how to do this and in what language/format.
Here is the link.
