If you know the date, then you do not need to traverse the archive.  The results are stored in individual documents.

So, 2013-01-02 would be in this URL:
http://www.tcmb.gov.tr/kurlar/201301/02012013.html

The normal way to retrieve such content is to instantiate a variable with
= createobject("InternetExplorer.Application")
Reference: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa752084(v=vs.85).aspx

The next part of your requirement is to render this in CSV format.  It would be helpful if you used the content of the URL above and manually rendered it as CSV.  That will give the experts some idea of the transform you have in mind.
