Has anyone try to scrape information from a web page?

I have an application that can not connect directly with the data server but the client has an web page that display the data that my program needs.

Has any one had any experince in coding, to scrap from a webapage (preferably in vb.net)  or is there a 3rd party plug in?

Thanks to all in advance

There are no readymade tools I’m aware of for screen scarping in VB but ASP.net is the way to go and there are good resources on how to code this, see
