Automatic "Save as text" a number of similar pages to a certain folder

Does anyone know how to get Internet explorer to save the current page to a specified folder as text document  - same like doing File/Save As/Save as Text File?

That is, I need a procedure (script, batch file, ...) that will imitate the sequence:
  File->Save As->Text File(filename+date+time.txt).

Filename: constant
Date and Time: the exact date and time of saving.

I'll need to click a button or an icon and it should do the trick.
Can this be done?

I'm assigning 500 points to this because it's very urgent!

TIA,
zvior

Hello, Zvior.  Sorry to see no one has responded here yet to your urgent question and this really isn't my area of expertise, but do hope this will get you started.

Thank you Asta,
But your link is about saving a script output to a text file rather than displaying it on screen.

What I'm asking is saving a web page as text.

I see.  Other than choosing to save all as .txt files, unclear.  html is basic text as well, but this google search may shed some light.

This seems too simple maybe I am missing something
From IE
File --> Save As
In the save as type drop down select Text File
choose your location and choose save

RedKelvin,

My question was:
"I need a procedure (script, batch file, ...) that will imitate the sequence:
  File->Save As->Text File(filename+date+time.txt)..."

Think you may be out of luck, you need a macro, but I don't think you can do that with IE
