Details

Every week, links to new information is posted at this url - https://www.fastlane.nsf.gov/servlet/A6RecentWeeks

I need a tool that allows me to scrape the information found when you click down two levels from this url to a record such as this  - http://goo.gl/Zo7roJ
This information should then be sent to a Microsoft Access database or excel spreadsheet.

The tools need to be reusable so that I can collect the new information on a weekly basis and automated i.e. I can press "start" and leave it to run.

It would also be useful if it took pieces of information from the search and carried out a google search placing the first two results in the database/spreadsheet as well.

In your reply please outline how you would build this tool i.e. what software and code you would use and how long it would take to complete the project (approximately). Also, if you can see any potential issue or improvements to what I have suggested.

You can also find this same information in a search such as the one below.
