I know filemaker 10 will load web pages, but can you write scripts that will extract data from a web page. I want to be able to extract some financial tables from a webpage and create an excel document from it. Will Filemaker 10 allow me to do this? Thanks.
It's possible, but not the most convenient way to get data from a provider. You'd need to analyze the web page and devise a way to parse it using Filemaker somewhat limited calculation tools (no regular expressions, for example). And of course, the slightest change on the provider's side can break your system.
