    There are many ways to obtain online data, although the most simple is to use the System.Net namespace. This is an area I am learning at the moment, and can only offer a fairly simple solution.

    Private Sub GetPageData()

                Dim request As WebRequest = WebRequest.Create("Your Web page here")
                request.Credentials = CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials
                Dim response As HttpWebResponse = CType(request.GetResponse(), HttpWebResponse)


                Dim dataStream As System.IO.Stream = _
                Dim reader As New System.IO.StreamReader(dataStream)

                Dim responseFromServer As String = reader.ReadToEnd()

                If responseFromServer <> "" Then
                    TextBox1.Text = responseFromServer
                    TextBox1.Text = "There is no downloadable data to view"
                End If
            Catch ex As Net.WebException
                TextBox1.Text = ex.Message() & " " & ex.Source
            Catch ex As Exception
                TextBox1.Text = ex.Message() & " " & ex.Source
            End Try
        End Sub

    Once you have the data in an input stream, you then have to check the document for the values you need; a simple example is to iterate over the document using a TextReader to find the ids or names of the tags. Depending on what you want from the data, you just then have to insert the page or values into the database the ordinary way.
