I am trying to download from this website.

http://mospublic.ercot.com/ercot/jsp/midterm_load_forecast.jsp



I want to download for just not for this default date but today … today + 7 days.

So the URL you need to pass for this is

http://mospublic.ercot.com/ercot/jsp/midterm_load_forecast.jsp?marketdate=2008-08-13



http://mospublic.ercot.com/ercot/jsp/midterm_load_forecast.jsp?marketdate=2008-08-19



I am using the formula,

http://mospublic.ercot.com/ercot/jsp/midterm_load_forecast.jsp?marketdate={:setdate=date+n}{:longyear}-{:0Month}-{:0Day}



This always gets the default page.(current date one).



Thanks for your help

Thanks again for your note. BTW, I am using IE not any meta product. I tried the above in a new browser (internet explorer) but still it gets the default page with the current date one.

See I want to download for just not for this default date but today … today + 7 days and today - 3 days. For automation, I want to pass the date in the url as query string but the above formula does not work.

I tried as below also:

http://mospublic.ercot.com/ercot/jsp/midterm_load_forecast.jsp?marketdate=2008-04-15

until unless I hit enter it does not go to the required date in a new browser. But while making the process automatic I can not hit enter thus is there any way to pass the date in the url so that without hiting enter it will go to the required date.

Can you please help me.

Thanks again

This is really strange. I just tried that URL. I started download on April 17th and it started loading the URL:

http://mospublic.ercot.com/ercot/jsp/midterm_load_forecast.jsp?marketdate=2008-04-16
