Hi,

Not exactly sure whether this is the right forum to address the problem I have been facing lately.

I have a .mht file that contains drop downs and based on the values chosen in those drop down lists, other fields get populated. I somehow need to collect all these information by my code and prepare the data to persist in some storage.

Could anyone give me some pointers on how to do this?

Thanks.

Maybe not exactly the right forum, but no worries. Parsing proprietary file formats is a lot of work, so you what you want to do is find somebody whose already done it, and buy it from them, or hope they give it away free. Here's one of several places that advertises a Java MHT parser: http://www.software112.com/products/chilkat-java-mht-library.html

You're most welcome! And sorry for the whose/who's mix up. I hate it when I do that!
