Hi guys,

How is it possable to make a c# program that:

1. Goes to: http://finance.yahoo.com/
2. Enters "MSFT" (Microsoft) in the Get Quotes text box
3. Clicks the bottom link "Cash Flow"
4. Saves the Cash Flow info on the page to a html / text file / database / (what ever is the easiest)

Thank you! Happy new year! :-)

Why not skip steps 1-3 and go directly to step 4:
http://finance.yahoo.com/q/cf?s=MSFT&annual

Now that you know the url, just retrieve the contents directly from yahoo:
