Hello experts,

I run a debating club.  An external windows app software pushes out debate results in a table in a .html file.

Is there a way that I can read this table so that I can place the values of each field in a database?

I have attached a pic of the .html table. Table in HTML file
Thank you

Vince

the code attached get the html tags to the string str
then you can manage it using mid(,,) function seraching for the html tag of each row
Dim web As New System.Net.WebClient()
            Dim url As String
            Dim d As Byte() = System.Text.Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes("")
            Dim res As Byte()
            Dim str As String

url = "http://www.blablabla.com"
                res = web.UploadData(url, "POST", d)
                str = System.Text.Encoding.ASCII.GetString(res)

Open in new window

Hi, use this code

Add main namespace for this operation

using System.IO;

Read html file


string file = Server.MapPath ("abc.html");
StreamReader sr;
FileInfo fi = new FileInfo(file);
string input = "<pre>";
if(File.Exists(file))
{
     sr = File.OpenText(file);
     input += Server.HtmlEncode(sr.ReadToEnd());
     sr.Close();
}
input += "</pre>";
Label1.Text = input;
