download generated files from bash

I am trying to download a text file generated via an asp script that takes multiple parameters in the url.  I want to setup a cronjob that will download the resulting file every hour.  I tried using wget to grab the file but that does not seem to work.  I'm guessing I need to using something like lynx to tell it to grab the resulting file.  If that is not an option I also have access to php via the command line.  Any suggestions?

Please define "does not seem to work".

wget or curl are quite capable of doing what you need.

instead of using cron try to download by yourself first if it works then use wget on the other hand quote the problem
