Is it possible to extract data from a site like this?

Hi,

Yes it is possible because it was built  using normal html, but could be difficult to set up. What data you want to scrape?

Best regards,

I would like to click on the 'Tabular Search' tab
Input '87618' in Account field  (eventually, I want to feed in a list of these Account numbers)
Click Search button
Click on the first Search Result record that is returned
Extract the Market Value on the right-hand side of the page

Thanks for your help!

I don't understand how this is going to work because the screen is blank when I bring this website up in Visual Web Ripper.

Thanks Brian,

I had to upgrade VWR to view your file, but I think it will be worth it.  

I can now see the web page in VWR, but I still don't understand how to navigate to the Tabular Search tab.  If I click on the Tabular Search tab in VWR, the Capture box shows 

<a class="x-tab-right" id="ext-gen69" href="#"><em class="x-tab-left"><span class="x-tab-strip-inner"><span class="x-tab-strip-text ">Tabular Search</span></span></em></a>.

I've tried using a Link template and a Form Submit template, but I can't seem to Open that tab to get to the screen I want.

I hope I'm just missing something easy.

Brian, when you asked me to attach my "agent" here, did you mean attache the rip file?  Or did you mean something else?

Hi,

Please attached you agent here.

Best regards,

Hi,

Use formsubmit for Search and for clicking the results, add "domclick" for link template.

See attached agent.


Best regards,

I successfully clicked on the 'Tabular Search' tab
I can Input '87618' in Account field  (eventually, I want to feed in a list of these Account numbers)
I was able to Click Search button

Now I'm trying to Click on the first Search Result record that is returned, but it is a table row and I can't seem to find a link.  Can you help me understand what to do here?


...After that, I will try to Extract the Market Value on the right-hand side of the page

You were correct.  My browser emulation was set to IE9.  Works like a champ now!
Thanks

Hi,

We have to insert a Custom User Agent to make the site works in VWR like this:

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/48.0.2564.116 Safari/537.36

Hi,

Your link template for Tabular Search works like a charm on me. I did not change anything. see video attached. Please make sure that your web browser emulation is set to IE11.

See video attached.

Best regards,
