Web Scraping Greyhound Cards

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Anyone know how I can download daily dog cards into a spreadsheet without copy and pasting till the cows come home(or dogs come home ) :)

At the moment I copy and paste into excell and then run a load of macros,but somebody mentioned web scraping which is much faster.Anybody here have any experience of that.

good luck
Ken

(Sorry for my English): If the pages you are interested in have a pattern in the url, it is possible to scrape without a problem. Just have some knowledge in python or something similar, if you are interested in going deeper into it, we can talk better...
