Well, one way would be to strip out all HTML tags by deleting everything between "<" and ">". But that would destroy the formatting. How much of the structure (formatting) do you want to keep?

After getting all the data from the table, the format for the text file can be kept as below:

A0001     040430     931.0   939.0   927.0   936.0   988   3396
D0002     040430     944.5   949.8   937.0   945.0     48    362
C0003     040430     982.3   982.3   970.0   970.0       4     33

Hello,

Take a look at

http://www.euromind.com/iedelphi/uilessparser/ieparser.htm

for parsing html pages. It has lots of functions

from site it says

MSHTML is in IEParser used as the "engine" in a HTML-parser component.
Drop the component on a form. Set URL-property and run function execute.
Enjoy!
