    Default Read the source of a URL into a variable?

    Hey --<BR><BR>I am trying to figure out how to read the source of a web page into a variable.<BR><BR>For instance, I want to grab stock ticker data from Yahoo!, so I can go to the following URL:<BR><BR><BR><BR>which returns (at this point in time) 23.02,+0.0200<BR><BR>Now, I can view that in the browser fine. But is there a function that I can use to call the web page and get the "23.02,+0.0200" into a variable that I could then manipulate before displaying on my own page?<BR><BR>Thanks!

    You can go to the microsoft website, which gives you COMPLETE source for your own (VB dll) version of it that works just as good if not better...and it&#039;s free (if you have VB).<BR><BR>I can&#039;t find it right now...but it&#039;s out on MSDN.
