I need to obtain product data from certain websites and then import them into a spreadsheet/database.
The data then needs to be able to be selected and imported again into dedicated xml files.
We would welcome bids from coders who can explain how they think they could achieve this. Please do NOT submit bids stating "yes we can do it" - I know you can, but I want your suggestions on how you would complete this. If you can explain if you could get this data into the formats that would be useful.
