Hi,

The webpage below is essentially a .txt file. How can I automatically download the data to a .txt file using either a windows batch script. There are 40 different pages that I would like to automatically download on a regular basis.

You can use 'wget' and run it thru a batch file that is run as a Windows Scheduled Task which is found in your Control Panel or in Accessories under System Tools.
