Web Scraping with Content Grabber

With Content Grabber, you can automatically harvest data from a website and deliver the content as structured data in multiple database formats (Oracle, SQLServer, My SQL, OLE DBE), or in other formats such as Excel spreadsheets, CSV or XML files.


Content Grabber can also extract data from highly dynamic websites where most other extraction tools are incapable. It can process AJAX-enabled websites, submit forms repeatedly to cover all possible input values, and manage website logins.
