Hello,

My company is a Subway financing company. Is there a way to scrap the information off of this website to excel and import to ACT!

Yep its certainly is possible...
But its requires that you write a custom
script that will parse the page and put all
the information u need into CSV format.
The webpage has a particular format that
u need to follow...i.e.
all addresses are inside the <table></table> tags
and address information is inside <div class="lm">...

basically u need to get all the information between these tags...

...and then look for the 'next' link to get the URL for the next page
wash, rinse, repeat
