in reply to I need to automate/scrape data from IE

If the page only works with IE then there's a chance that it uses ActiveX - the core of the HTML page would be an <object> tag with a bunch of ugly parameters. If that is what you're getting then one or more of the parameters might be URLs that you could try accessing directly. But if it does use ActiveX and you can't access the data URLs directly then you're pretty much screwed.

Is this for your TPS reports?
