Read ACT data with ASP

I need to read basic company information from the ACT! Premium web database into another web program (a proposal system) using ASP scripting. 

 

Is there a way to grab the data from an htm page after it is displayed?  If not, how can I access the information from the database?

 

Thank you in advance.

There is some info on creating and ODBC link in the support pages www.act.com/support/kb might help you find the answer.

It's certainly possible to parse the html for the data your looking for, but I think as pbuchtmann has mentioned it may be more straightforward to use the ODBC to pull data from your Act database.
