Web Data Scraping Project

I would like to be able to extract pricing data from a product supplier. I am a reseller of their products and need to be able to extract live data from their site.

I have called the supplier and inquired about them allowing a script to read from their database (can't remember the technical term). However, they said that they do not allow that. This is unfortunate, as they are my only source for resale. They said I have to manually look up a price each time I need to order. This is a problem, as I have a small site, where I want to sell several of their products, if not most all eventually. I have manually compiled a spreadsheet with the data that I need, however it has not become obsolete.

Therefore a need to write a script that could automatically scrape the products and prices and update the "Live" prices with my website price list so that it remains current.

Here is a link to their online pricing calculator: [url removed, login to view]

As you can see there are numerous Materials, Sizes, Quantities, number of Sides, and Colors of each item.

I have tried some data scraping software and most will not work properly. However I really want to incorporate the extracted data to a spreadsheet on my server or a database on my server (I have no experience with server side databases), that will be able to update my online price list accordingly (none of this is currently working).

Thanks.
