I need to create an app that will open a web page and read in the source for that page so I can extract some data from the page.

Can you point me to some refernce material that might help me get started?

Thank you.

As Chris says, this is called Web scraping.

Please see my past answers where I quickly describe what techniques are involved:

How to get the data from another site[^].
