Scrape information from a website

In Progress

I need someone who can automate Excel to individually search & retrieve information on multiple items listed on a spreadsheet, then return the specified data into the workbook.

In addition, occasionally I may need to use this for over 1000+ items and question whether or not Excel is the best program to use with respect towards efficiency and memory usage. That being said, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
