    Where would one begin to capture web page data to access 2003?

    We have breakdowns (data I want to capture) displayed on the casting web
    site -
    right clicking the page brings up a menu then
    selecting VIEW SOURCE brings the text I would like to capture
    SAVE AS allows creation of a text file that I would like to
    UPDATE or APPEND as needed into our current projects database.

    I assume it can be done - probably via windows explorer api(?) but really
    have no idea where to begin.

    You don't need any Windows API calls - they wouldn't help. Search Access
    Help for the Open statement - it enables File I/O. After you have the file
    opened and read into a buffer you will need to write a parser routine to
    look for and extract the data you want to capture. It isn't going to be
    trivial...
