I need to automate the search and retrieval of specific data from this website.  I have thousand of addresses to search and would like to run this from MS Access if at all possible.
The images attached show the search box used followed by the specific values I need to extract (District and Township)

Any ideas?

Best way to manage this is contact the owners of the website and ask if they have any methods to do this. From reading their Terms of Use, however, I'd be surprised if they allowed you to.

Or even ask for access to the data more directly.
If you are truly "Partnered" with them, ...then they should be able to grant you some sort of limited access to the underlying data.
(via some sort of remote connection technology or VPN)

Again, ...this might be irrelevant if what Scott posted is true...
