I have situation where I want to scrape a profile of a company for example with 20 / 30 different attributes layout on one page, save each of those elements as a column title, and paginate through a directory and build a table with each page as a row, and the columns being the various data points (that all have different tags on the same page, but are consistent across different pages)

Right now I have been going through laborious process of copying text and using UI explorer to find an element, which is a real pain compared to the screen scraping wizard.

below is a link to a profile on test for example, the tags on the page are all different, but if I want to scrape another page, the tags will be the same, so can paginate through and create a really valuable table of all these companies.
