Good afternoon, forum

I'll try not to bore you with all the details of my project, not in the least because I don't have a great deal of time tonight. I have a spreadsheet "app" in mind that goes something like this:

SECTION: Batches available to work on
- Batch number (unique)
- Qty
- Due date
- ...

SECTION: Next batch to work on
> Input batch number

SECTION: Log of batches worked on
- Batch number (unique)
- Qty
- Due date
- ...

The move from 1 section to another will involve some macro programming I know. (I am still learning this, but it appears doable.)

What I need is a way to import section 1 from a dynamic webpage .. that is, one that is generated based on POST data in the HTTP request. I have used HTTPfox to find the format of the info sent by my browser, but now I want to mimic that info with Calc. Is this doable with GUI tools? With a macro?

Any and all help is welcome. I am a total know-nothing.

for a starter, see http://www.oooforum.org/forum/viewtopic.phtml?t=115220 for how to POST to a website and read the returned data

Good luck,
