Need a VB/VBS/.NET application that will submit a form on a web site which will return listings containing contact information. Application should save the information in this listing into an Access 2000 database.

Application should gather email addresses from 'Estate Planning' legal services of, at

From here, application should recursively drill down through each state, such as 'Alabama' at

After this, application should then drill down further through each 'City' such as 'Abbeville' at

This will return multiple-page listing of attorneys, whose full contact info (first name, last name, city, state, zip, email address, tel, fax) I then need captured to a database. I need this repeated for every State, City, and page listing returned by the above queries to the 'Estate Planning' services section of the directory. Some data fields may be empty (for example missing email address), these must also be saved to database.

** NOTE: this web site may have mechanisms in place to stop requests which occur too frequently in a short period of time. It's your job to figure out how to get around this, as well.

1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.

2) Application MUST be compilable in VB6, or within the .NET framework using the command-line compiler (VB.NET or C#).

3) Complete ownership and distribution copyrights to all work purchased.

4) Access 2000 database containing results from executing above program.

Windows 2000
VB6 or .NET C#

Must be 100% finished and received by buyer on:
Dec 9, 2002 EDT

Dear Og Reesh,

I have completed this kinda of Email Search program - done in Visual Basic and Access 2000, called Email Spider or Email Grabber Wizard. Infact this software works on all web sites, not just those in You can search upto specified levels of web. ( I hope you understood what I meant .. like

  1. Level - State
  2. Level - City
  3. Level - List of members available
  4. Level - Details of each member - with Full Name, Address, Phone, Email, Homepage, etc)

And all these details will be saved into Access database. My current application saves the Email only and I need to modify the code so that it would grab the other details also.

The program is

  • Intelligent enough to escape from Loops (page1->page2->page3->page1)
  • Searches the web like a spider
  • Does not saves the multiple copies of emails. (Thus No redundant Information)
  • Escape from spam traps, like avoiding saving of,, etc etc .. using keyword filter.

Now comming to our sepcific point, I have good idea of escaping from the reqeusting data in too short period of time. Its some thing like this. For each and every request of the HTML page, there will be some delay in between. You can set this value manually or run with a default value. In the attachment I have placed the screenshots of the work done and tested on localhost. Please go through that in detail and try to understand them by taking my above product features into consideration.

I am sure that I am your best choice for getting the work done to the requirement with perfection. If you are intersted then you next step is to accept the bid. If you got any other questions then reply me back... I would be withyou as soon as possible.
