Project Description

Hello Freelancers,
I need a way that will allow me to avoid a lot of processes done by my macros in the excel files I have so far.
In particular I would like to simply insert a date somewhere (C#?), ex: 23rd december, and the scraper would be able to retrieve the data of all the greyhound races results for that particular day indicated by myself. This would be the link for the 23rd of december
http://www.racingpost.com/greyhounds/result_home.sd#resultDay=2012-12-23
The main thing is that the scraper should retrieve the greyhounds data participating to the races that day, usually 6 per each race. So for example on the 23rd at Hove track at [url removed, login to view] the winner was Almost Breeze In, the data I would like for the dog would be this
[url removed, login to view]
where the ID indicates the greyhound. Different IDs different dogs. The fact is that I need the data for all the 6 dogs of the race in Excel, and I need it to be done for all the races of the day. So it could be around 70 races and 500 dogs per day. My only action should be indicating the date, the scraped data into excel files with race results and dogs data would be elaborated later by my excel macros as I am able to programm those. Let me know! Maybe C#? Good luck and thanks in advance!
