    I need web scraping software suggestion. I know there are courses in python and javascript but I want something simpler.

    Basically I have a page with a list that has a page element at the bottom (20 pages). Each item in the list has a hyperlink and when you click on it opens a details page with the detail of that item.

    I basically need to extract specific data and put it in excel columns

    Anyone know of software that they would suggest? Google gives too many results and I want to know the best software for the job

    It is worth looking into power query, it’s free from Microsoft versions after Excel 2016 it is built in, versions below there is an add-in.
