How to batch save an XML file returned from an https GET request api

One the applications that we have has a handy http api, which when called will return an XML file.  

I need to call this API several times on a regular basis, passing different parameters through.  

What I am trying to do is to save the output into a file (ideally a single file which gets appended with each API call).  

I then upload the file into Access, where I report on the data (assume I can manage this part!!!)

Google for a command like utility called httpget.exe  (or wget.exe)

In general (there are several variations of this tool) you can use it to do this from the command line:

httpget.exe  "http://api.url.com/page.api?param1=val1"  >  filename.xml
