I am having difficulty downloading this (and similar) sites ...

This is a real estate site that puts a limit on the number of records returned per search to 150. The entire site has 24,000 actual listings. I have tried using macros to increment the high and low prices by 1 (in thousands) but I keep getting the error message my search has returned no records. Please help!

This is simple. You just changed wrong symbols. Please use the following macro instead:

http://idx.cisdata.net/bin/rea.php?acnt=AR74132&flid=&ZKEY=&action=SEARCH_MLS&idx_action=SEARCH&start={:0..23456|25}&mls_area=ALL+AREAS&pricerange=$50,000-$2,000,000&beds=Any&baths=Any&year_built=Any&sqft=Any&lotsize=Any&proptype=Single+Family+Home,New+Construction,Condo%2FTownhouse&propfeatures=&agent_id=&idx_custom1=&idx_custom2=&modified=

That`s all!

I tried this but you will see you get an error message whenever the seach exceeds 150 returned records. Look at this "hard coded" URL and you`ll see what I mean ... this is why I turned off the limit level option and tries to always start at 0 and vary the high/low price values instead -- trying to generate returns less than 150 total records!

http://idx.cisdata.net/bin/rea.php?acnt=AR74132&flid=&ZKEY=&action=SEARCH_MLS&idx_action=SEARCH&start=225&mls_area=ALL+AREAS&pricerange=$50,000-$2,000,000&beds=Any&baths=Any&year_built=Any&sqft=Any&lotsize=Any&proptype=Single+Family+Home,New+Construction,Condo%2FTownhouse&propfeatures=&agent_id=&idx_custom1=&idx_custom2=&modified=

Any other ideas?

Thanks,

Steve

I see. With your original URL, there was a problem with how + symbol was sent to the server in the request. I just fixed it. Please find the updated oe.exe file here:

Let me know how it works. Thank you!
