Hi,

I couldn't find these links in the URL you provided. Anyway, you could try importing the Turn pages without a "Next" button premade at File -> Online Premades and then create a kind that selects the link that takes you to the next page, no matter which page you are at (there is some more info in the project's description) and using it as your "Next" button (think of it as a "Next" button except that its text changes on each page).

Regarding the tabs, try creating a kind that selects the links on those tabs (you might need to select a tab and then press the Select Parent button in the selection panel until the OuterHTML starts with "<A"), and then using a Navigate Each with Simulate Click on that navigates through them.

How do I scrap pages that are set like:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 ...

Where the "..." is link to another set of ten represented as ... 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 ...

Where the "..." before is the last set of ten and the end "..." is the next set of 10?

The set I have has over 10,000 records with max 10 records per page, so you can imagine, there are a lot of pages.

Do a search under Corporations - you can use the term "Avenue" as a test. It should return 3,309 records...

I tried to import the Go Through All Pages, but it stops after getting to the 11the page - more specifically 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 ... - the last link represented by the "..."

Thanks.

Never mind - figured this out. Had to create another kind that just looks at the "..." (as the next button link). Execute Go Through All Pages using that kind definition, then Navigate through each of the numbered pages.
