use this function to get web page into a  string. after that, you will find what you want by using standard character crtieria and vb string methods.

Shared Function getpage(ByVal url As String) As String
        Dim WC As New System.Net.WebClient()
        Dim s As System.IO.Stream = WC.OpenRead(url)
        Dim sr As New System.IO.StreamReader(s)
        Return sr.ReadToEnd()
    End Function

As one needing to upgrade and educate myself to using VB.net I had to understand the difference between the Web browser control and Web client when using Win forms. Having done that and using the web client solution provided by calling the function from the form 1_load event and loading it into a multiline text box I can see all HTML from my selected URL. Now I can use a parsing method to get the desired webpage content.
