initialization macro to prepare web page for looping macro?

Post by dan_micuda » Thu Jan 06, 2011 4:41 pm


Is it possible to have the following within a programming language(prefer VBA):
- use a imacros macro before a for .. loop to get to the web page containing a table
- include a imacros macro to get the curent table line within the for..loop; move to a linked page to get additional information related to the table line; move back to the table page;

Briefly I am asking if it possible to avoid geting again and again to the table page(from scratch) as many times as there are lines within the table.

Thank you for your help,
Dan Micuda

Yeah... you can just keep stepping up a counter (or POS value) that will search for values. When the extract on that POS = #EANF# then you know you have hit the end of your table. I think this is what you are asking.

Good Luck,
