Auto download Data from website using SAS?

Hello all:

I would like to use SAS to automatically download Data from this site.

http://ampd.epa.gov/ampd/

However, before downloading any data, on the website, you need to navigate through 4 or 5 pagess, to enter query parameters and then get the data

Any Idea how I can automate this whole process using SAS?

I was thinking of using a website scraper and integrating it with SAS. Not sure whether I am thinking in the right direction.

Appreciate your inputs

Regards

They have a prepackaged data section on there, those files don't have everything available in via the query tool?
