Hi Everyone,

Is it possible in sas to do web scraping accurately, Go to a website and enter the zip code as shown in picture 1 and extract the city and other city information from picture 2 and store into a dataset. And again go to "edit and search again" in picture 2 and search for new zip code ?
Can I do it for more than 1000+ zips ?

I don't dare to download and open your attachment ...

, but it occurs to me you need PROC HTTP.

 

Just put all 1000+ zip-codes you want in a data set column and call PROC HTTP once per zip-code (you can easily do that with a macro loop or with call execute).
