    Hi everyone,

    any way to extract supplier information from the following link?

    http://www.biosciregister.com/find/Find.asp?SearchTy=Name&SearchSu=&SearchKe=AllKey&SearchLo=ALL&x=10&y=11

    like: company name, email address, phone number etc.? there are 3865 suppliers according to the link.

    Thanks,

    Look into the system.net.webclient class. That will make it easy to get the html of that page into a string variable. Combine that with the html agility pack to parse the string. You'll have to study the html involved to know what to look for.
