Note: I initially posted this message on the Google group comp.lang.python, as I initially intended to write the program in Python. I post it again on this forum, to submit my question to Applescript programmers I am by no means a serious programmer (which will become evident as you read this very message), except that I use VBA almost daily to automate Excel spreadsheets. I do enjoy programming however and the only thing that prevented me from learning a language other than VBA is the lack of a project. Until today, I was not sure what I would do if I knew how to program in a language such as Applescript. I now feel the need to develop a small program for myself. I have a free subscription to Factiva (www.factiva.com), which gives me online access to virtually all newspapers, magazines, etc. using a normal internet browser. The bad thing is that I can only access the articles one by one. I wish I could write a program that would: - prompt me to choose a publication (let's say The Economist), - find the latest publication, - download automatically all the articles in that edition and finally - combine and format the articles in a single Word document. This way, I will be able to print the magazine and read it on my way to the office. Can I use Applescript to automate this task?
