    Default Load ASP result into a varible for parsing.

    Has anyone done something like this? (FYI, I know this is not the correct syntax.)<BR><BR>&#060;& varTemp = Request.URL("http://www.anywhere.com/stats.txt")<BR><BR>I would then parse string, and INSERT/UPDATE the data into a database with only ASP.<BR><BR>Background<BR>I have a fantasy baseball dB that I keep up to date with data from Yahoo! I am currently doing this with a VB ActiveX control that I created. It uses the Internet Transfer Control (SP2) to get the web page, then VB parses it, and updates the dB with a stored proc.<BR><BR>Thanks in advance,<BR>Rob

    Default RE: Load ASP result into a varible for parsing.

    You can do this with ASP. You need to use a third-party component, though, that will allow for retrieving information off other webservers through HTTP POSTs/GETs. See:<BR><BR>Grabbing Information from Other Servers<BR>http://4guysfromrolla.com/webtech/071199-1.shtml<BR><BR>for more information on a free third-party component that will help you accomplish this. Happy programming! :)
