I want to create a php file that reads HTML file that is uplaoded daily to a folder on my web server, when ever I open the page it needs to read the HTML file and post only data i want to use, i have created some reader but it always opens the file then it write the eact file as is in my PHP page. The HTML file has too much data in it, I want to use certain lines information only. The data in the HTML file is never the same, it is transactions (from top of page to bottom) at the bottom is summary of data, I want to use the heading lines (Title) of the HTML and the summary at the bottom
Becuase the transactions are never the same i cant seem to look for the lines and post only that data.

The Statement File looks like this:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">

Can I ask why this data is in a static html file? Would it not be better coming from/ being stored in a DB?


i receive file in email from bank i already made program to extract and save to web folder via FTP - an dyes i agree it would be MUCH better to make link to db and extarct all i want from it :) ... in this case the bank not going to allow me access to teh accounts ... yet ... lol
