seeking developer for Excel VBA data scraper

Postby Mistermind » Sun Aug 27, 2017 11:20 am

Not a trading bot -- I need a developer who can scrape data from a website and place daily scrapings into 10 columns of an Excel spreadsheet, navigating to only 3 hyperlinks.

Simple, straightforward, £100 reward for quick development. Email me if preferred to tyrone061@hotmail.com

So long as output is populated under 10 columns in Excel spreadsheet, VBA is not mandatory.
A limited amount of text parsing and recognition is required for scraper, for example to extract 7 bytes of output from 20 bytes input then jettison the unwanted text.

Due to website access restrictions, developing of this scraping tool has been shelved for now.

Sports betting software from Gruss Software


The strength of Gruss Software is that it’s been designed by one of you, a frustrated sports punter, and then developed by listening to dozens of like-minded enthusiasts.

Gruss is owned and run by brothers Gary and Mark Russell. Gary discovered Betfair in 2004 and soon realised that using bespoke software to place bets was much more efficient than merely placing them through the website.

Gary built his own software and then enhanced its features after trialling it through other Betfair users and reacting to their improvement ideas, something that still happens today.

He started making a small monthly charge so he could work on it full-time and then recruited Mark to help develop the products and Gruss Software was born.

We think it’s the best of its kind and so do a lot of our customers. But you can never stand still in this game and we’ll continue to improve the software if any more great ideas emerge.
