Can screen scraping be done on a web screen?

Can screen scraping be done on a web screen?

We are linked to another departments terminal to retrieve data.  They are going to a new web based system.  I don't know if macros can work on a web site.  Any ideas?   

RE: Can screen scraping be done on a web screen?


Your macros work on an Extra EMULATOR.

Is the other department using an Extra emulator to emulate a web browser?

for a NUANCE!tongue

RE: Can screen scraping be done on a web screen?

I don't think so.  It's like a regular web site.  I tried to use the mouse to copy something and when I right click the mouse it just says Silverlite.  No menu pops up.   It's a secure site and you have to log in and has several screens to go through before you find the one you want.  This is going to put us back 10 years because we do production work and using macros for everything gets the work done. They will never get it done with this new system.
Might as well use a typewriter. I read in the macro help section  Attachmate has a Web Macro Generator but you have to download a Microsoft tool kit from attachmate to use it.  I'm glad I'm retireing soon.
