Project Description:
Hi there,

I am trying to develop a way to automate the daily retrieval of PDF's from a State Government website and extract (scrape) specific information from the document. The procedure is as follows:

1. Go to URL http://imaging.occeweb.com/imaging/OAP.aspx
2. Enter Docket Code: ORDER
3. Enter Case Type: CD
4. Enter Date Range (to be done daily)
5. Hit ‘Search’
6. Open first document by clicking hyperlink under ‘ID’ Column
a. Identify RELIEF SOUGHT
b. If RELIEF SOUGHT = ‘POOLING’ continue to step 7
c. Else, return to results and open next document, then repeat a/b
7. If DISMISSED return to step 6
8. Else, identify fields highlighted in example documents
9. Export results to excel database – each column name marked in red on example documents
10. Return to search results and continue searching through documents with criteria from step 6

Obviously, I only need the PDF's that pertain to POOLING as the RELIEF TYPE.

I am looking to organize all this data in a program like Excel for my use. I'd like the data to be organized by Order Date, Cause CD No. and then a column for each piece of information highlighted and identified in red in the example documents.

I have provided two examples to show that the document may vary somewhat in formatting and the presentation of data.
