Project Description

I have a windows-specific python script that needs debugging. The basic situation is that I have a list of names and birthdates and I need to find out if they are pilots. The FAA database is public, but you have to query it because the database they allow you to download is incomplete (it only has active certificates rather than all certificates). Three years ago, I wrote a simple python script that takes the names one by one from a text file, fills in the fields on the FAA website and then collects the results in another text file. Between now and then they have changed the coding on their site and I fixed a bunch of things, but am having trouble referencing the specific nodes that contains the information I want. In other words, I can get it to log in and feed the names through, but I can’t currently collect the results. I've attached my python script and a list of names
