Web Page Scraping

I hate those web pages or web applications with a lot of data but no export capabilities. In the past I’ve tried to do my best to copy the code to a text editor and then strip out all of the text except what I’m looking for. But I think I found a better way. I ran across this article about how to use Google Sheets to scrape data from the page.

Just from the looks of things some analysis will still need to be done on the page code to determine the correct tag to use to extract the data, but it seems much easier than the way I was doing it before.
