Project Description

I am looking for a programmer to help develop a web crawler. The app needs to crawl a few websites on a weekly basis. Some of the websites have volume restrictions and require the ability to connect to a proxy server after so many requests. The output needs to be in the format of a .CSV file with headers. One of the websites requires a username and password before proceeding. Please see a couple samples below:

I would prefer that the application be written as a macro in VBA for excel but will except all other full applications with raw files. The applications needs to be equipped with error handling incase of a 404, 302, timeout, ect. I would also like to have a status bar or estimated time notification to allow the user to see that the application is in progress.
