Thanks for your interest. Here are some further details:

Currently I am developing an aspx website with code written in Delphi. I would like to send the results of a stock screen to the website. I have added an image to the bid request.

1. Go to the following website.

[url removed, login to view]

Note: You do not need to login.

Normally when I go to this page I can select a screen (TestScreen1) that I have already saved. To see this you will have to create a simple screen. This screen is saved as a cookie on your local computer.

Create a simple screen.

a. Select 'Exchange Equal PSE'

b. Click on Click Here to Screen

c. Click on Run Screen

d. Under the Pricing Info Heading select

Current Price

52 Week High

52 Week Low

e. Click on the Submit button (Scroll to the bottom of the page)

f. Save Screen as TestScreen1

Ideally I would like to run this data extractor from an aspx page and save the results directly to the sql database on the web server. As the screen information is saved as a cookie it would have to be stored on the web server.

Otherwise, it may be possible to run an application on my local drive that could extract the data. I would then find a way to send it to the webserver.

I would really prefer the code to be written in Delphi however I will consider other options as well.

Thanks again for your interest please let me know if you have any questions.
