I need a script that will monitor a set of pages on a website. I currently have a script written in Unisyn Automate (<[url removed, login to view]>) to do this, but I need the script to be more stable. Unisyn Automate uses VBA so an experienced VB programmer could pick it up pretty easily and improve on the script. HOWEVER, a programmer may choose to start from scratch in any language they choose. I don’t care as long as it works.
The program must do the following:
Choose from drop down menus and select different sets of data and loop through to the next set of data. See the screenshot included in the file Website Monitor Project [url removed, login to view]
Then the program must look at the page and determine if the two dates have changed on the page. These dates are on the page and are generated by site. The dates are not always in the same location, but they do have variables that are always constant around them so they are fairly easily found. The pages are in cold fusion. See attached sample page to see dates.
Then the program must log the dates and compare them to the most recent check.
If the dates are different, the program must then go to the page and print the page in adobe acrobat.
So the functions in summary should be to compare the dates on a web page to see if the page has changed, log the dates and make a pdf file if the files have changed. This is actually s pretty simple task.
The files I am including are the Automate script, the excel document where I currently log changes, and a sample page.
Thanks for bidding.
