Hi,

I'm in the process of building a database that is to be accessible to users via a webpage. They will submit their requests on the site, which would include some form of user id, and the database is to look up the appropriate information based on their request on another website (stock prices on an exchange, in this case). If the user enters a symbol and clicks submit, is there a way that I can look up the symbol on a predefined site and show it to the user, without redirecting them to the site?

Of course, it would still be necessary to give credit to the source of the information, but I want to keep it within my own site.

    There is a way to do it if the predefined site supports RSS feeds. Although it requires a little bit of programming.
    [hr]Good luck!
