Hello All,
I am most grateful for your help so far thankyou all.
I thought if I show you what I am trying to acheive you will get a better understanding and then you can help me in the right way.
I have this link
http://www.sage.co.uk/far/enterpc.asp
once clicked on it type in the postcode box CB11 4DE and then a list of companys appear, then click on profile it displays the customers details,
What I want is a tool where I can type in the postcode and then it will print out the details from the page Iwhere you get the companys profile. so at the end I get the company name, the phone no, and the email address, on a text pad
can you help me please?
Thanks again
Lol

It shouldn't be too difficult to create a database of companies and a servlet to do a query by postal code. What part of the process do you have a question on?
Servlets? JDBC? Java in General?

Hi Joe,
I can't put them all into a database as it is not my site and if I done it manuly it would take me for ever.
I know once they are in a database I can pull them out how I want to view them. But putting them into the database is another thing.
how would I pull the data I want from this site (which is not mine) and store the data in a database then?
Thanks
Lol

I suggest that you contact Sage at the phone number on the page you linked to and ask them if they will provide you with a list of their resellers. If you have a compelling need, I'm sure they will be happy to oblige you.

Hello Joe,
I have contacted them but they will only give me one companys details.
Are you saying that I will not be able to achieve my goal?
Thanks

Nope, merely that I will not assist you. Not that I am questioning your motives, but if Sage wanted their reseller list to be distributed, they would be the ones doing it.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
