If you have a pdf of the data you need try pdftotext, which is a part of the xpdf library. It does a great job of extracting useful text from any pdf not based on a scan of an image. Then you'll have plain text to parse into fields. That would save the WWW::Mechanize learning curve and the javascript frustrations it raises. -- Hugh
