Extraction wizard

I'm evaluating Internet Macros Scripting edition. I'm trying to extract from this tag:

<td align="right" class=""> ?0,30 </td>

just the:


It looks pretty simple, but I have tried (without success) everything that I could think about.

I though this should work:

EXTRACT POS=1 TYPE=TXT ATTR=<td align="right" class="">*

But it doesn't. What am I doing wrong? Can you please tell me what would be the command to use to extract that text. I will see it clear then. I'm looking forward to your answer

Your EXTRACT command looks correct. Is this a framed website? In this case you need to put the FRAME command before the EXTRACT command, so the EXTRACT command knows in which frame to look for the data.

Code: Select all
EXTRACT POS=1 TYPE=TXT ATTR=<td align="right" class="">*

You are correct, that was the problem.

Everything works flawlessly now, thanks!
