How to automate a script request?

P: n/a
Below is the code I want to automate. Code from an ASP page that
launches a query for more information on the item.

<a href="javascript:GetAgent('BB267')">

I want to run a local script on my machine that I can feed IDs
(BB267 in the above example) and capture the responses from the
remote web site to a database.

thanks for the help!

Sounds like you need XMLHttpRequest. Either roll your own:

Or use something like the AJAX toolbox which makes the use of it a bit
easier (but may have functionality you don't need):
