Whether something can be automated or not depends entirely on the web site.

For those that have the CSV file readily available, I often just use the smfGetCSVFile() function from my EXCEL add-in.

MorningStar used to have a lot of nice CSV files available. However, now they require cookies and credentials to access, which requires programming specific to those files. Some sites require you to be logged in. IBD recently changed their website so that the EXCEL IE object is no longer functional for logging in (not on their list of supported browsers).
