Software: VelocityScape Web Scraper Plus+
I have tasks setup to login to a website, enter a search query into a search box & extract the data form the resulting webpage.
I need to do this every 5 minues for several hours, so having it login to the website every time probaly isn't the best idea.
The program has an advanced option of using an SQL statement to loop back to a previous task & I would like it to wait 5 minutes before looping back.
I don't see why this can't work as long as web scraper doesn't close the connection to the website while holding/waiting.
The program may also be run unattended so if there's a way I can set a time to stop looping in the SQL database that would be great.
The VelocityScape website does show an exmaple of looping back using a SQL statement but it isn't very in depth.
