I want to go out and cache several URLs once a week. I have a table of URLs that I want to cache. What is the easiest way to do this? After I cache the pages, I have another app that will scan the page for text and put that into another table. Any suggestions?
Thanks John

Try to use MSXML2.XMLHTTP40 to cache URLs

You will need reference to the Microsoft Scripting Runtime and Microsoft XMl 4.0

Option Explicit

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim oFSO    As New Scripting.FileSystemObject
Dim oStream As Scripting.TextStream
Dim xmlHttp As New MSXML2.XMLHTTP40

    xmlHttp.open "POST", "http://localhost/test.asp", False
    xmlHttp.send ""
    Text1.Text = xmlHttp.responseText

    Set oStream = oFSO.OpenTextFile("C:\test.html", ForWriting, True, TristateFalse)

    oStream.WriteLine (Text1.Text)

    oStream.Close

    Set oStream = Nothing
    Set oFSO = Nothing
    Set xmlHttp = Nothing

End Sub
