[url removed, login to view]: XML scrape and display with XSL

I need a small [url removed, login to view] application that can, at midnight every night, automatically capture the XML guts of a daily public government internet report, and save it to an .xml file on our server. Then I need an [url removed, login to view] page for my website that can display the report nicely (as a table) to our customers.

The Url of the government report is here:

[url removed, login to view];repType=termPriceDaily&paf_dm=full&repTypeChanger=termPriceDaily&commAbr=APL&commAbr=PCH&commAbr=PEAR&lastLocation=&step2=true&type=termPrice&type=termPrice&rowDisplayMax=25&lastCommodity=&startIndex=1&locAbr=AJ&paf_gear_id=1200002&locName=&run=Run&previousVal=&locChoose=location&repDate=&endDate=&step3date=true&step3date=true&blech=&dr=1

The top part with the advertising and buttons, I don’t want to show. The bottom part only (the gray tabular report body) is what I want to display to our customers.

The XML of the report can be downloaded by clicking the button in the above report.

The Url of the underlying XML is here:

[url removed, login to view]?&repType=termPriceDaily&paf_dm=full&repTypeChanger=termPriceDaily&commAbr=APL&commAbr=PCH&commAbr=PEAR&lastLocation=&step2=true&type=termPrice&type=termPrice&rowDisplayMax=25&lastCommodity=&startIndex=1&locAbr=AJ&paf_gear_id=1200002&locName=&run=Run&previousVal=&locChoose=location&dr=1&repDate=&endDate=&step3date=true&step3date=true&blech=&xml=true

I already have an [url removed, login to view] page that simply displays the government report, as is, in an IFrame. It was very easy and simple, and works well, but has the disadvantage of showing the large report advertisement and buttons at the top that I don’t want displayed.

The ideal, but perhaps impossible, solution would be just an [url removed, login to view] page that can automatically pull the XML data directly from the government report in realtime, and then display it without the top advertising section. In other words, instead of having to download and save an .xml file every night, just pull it live using the [url removed, login to view] page. However I think that’s probably impossible. Is it?

So instead, as said, I will be happy with a two part solution:

1. A small [url removed, login to view] Windows Form app that can capture the XML and save it to an .xml file, and

2. An [url removed, login to view] page that can apply XSL against the XML and display just the tabular part of the report, with roughly the same style of formatting, to our customers.

A one part solution, as just an [url removed, login to view] page alone, as I said, would be even better.

I’ll need all source code of course, which I’ll be using in Visual Studio 2005.

Thanks for bidding.

My budget for this project is $50.
