I am trying to extract the player information from the Boston Celtics Roster page. I have save the roster page into a text file named BostonRosterHtml.txt. I know how to extract this data form the table using Regex. But I am trying to learn how to do this extraction using the mshtml objects. This is where I am unsure how to go about this. I am tryng to extract the player's infor from the page and storing each player's information in a list. ie

Dim strNumber as New  List(Of Integer)
Dim strPlayer as new List(Of String)
Dim  strPosition as new List(Of String
Dim strHeight as new List(Of String)
Dim str Weight as new List(Of String)
Dim strDOB as new List(Of String)
Dim strFROM as new List(Of String)
Dim strYearsInPros as new List(Of string)

Below is the html snippet where the column Heading are :
</tr>

<tr class=gSGSectionColumnHeadings>
<td NOWRAP width=40 class=gSGSectionColumnHeadings><b>NUM</b></td>
<td NOWRAP width=160 align=left class=gSGSectionColumnHeadings><b>PLAYER</b></td>
<td NOWRAP width=40 align=left class=gSGSectionColumnHeadings><b>POS</b></td>
<td NOWRAP width=40 align=left class=gSGSectionColumnHeadings><b>HT</b></td>
<td NOWRAP width=40 align=left class=gSGSectionColumnHeadings><b>WT</b></td>
<td NOWRAP width=65 align=left class=gSGSectionColumnHeadings><b>DOB</b></td>
<td NOWRAP width=185 align=left class=gSGSectionColumnHeadings><b>&nbsp;&nbsp;FROM</b></td>
<td NOWRAP width=30 align=left class=gSGSectionColumnHeadings><b>YRS</b></td>
</tr>

Below in code is the html  roster page that has been shortened to only include the area where the player roster  table is. This has been save in a text file.

If some one could help me with the code to extract this inormation from the table in this webpage  using the ms html objects I would greatly appreciate it.
