Statement download
« on: August 29, 2021, 05:59:41 am »
Is there a way to download the most current statement from a bank or investment company even though the link title is different each month?

Also, is there a way for WebBatch to be able to regularly check to see if a new statement has been posted and, if so, download it??

Thanks!
Mike

WebBatch is not a Web scraping tool. It is a CGI scripting language used on Web servers to create dynamic Web pages.

It is impossible to answer the question about downloading bank statements. The likely answer is yes but the how is completely dependent on the site in question. There are multiple examples of interacting with Web sites on this forum and in the Tech Database for you to peruse and learn from.

Thanks.  Didn’t realize it was for building sites.  Sorry..
