I'd like help fixing this Downloader. I am trying to extract earnings data. ie: http://biz.yahoo.com/z/20131028.html

It seems the parser is broken. I've attached the errors below.

Where is the actual pattern matching and parsing done that extracts the data from the html?

Thanks,
Matt

Hi Matt,

The parsing of html data is done using the Pre-Script code (click on "Pre-Script" button).

I have already updated the script and the downloader is working now. Please download it again from the sharing server.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
