Has anyone had experience retriving data from a site using 3rd party software, i badly need an export of data from my site but do not have a facility to do so, im expecting my developers to charge but im wonding if there is some software that will crawl the site and pull off the info I (price, type, description etc) need for around 2000 products.

Hi I just looked a Mozenda, yes ist is an SQL database but its hosted with the developers which I have no access, My CMS is archaic so cant do it from there. Im expecting the devs to charge so i was just wondering if there is an alternative.

Just to re-touch on this subject my developers have increased there quote from £350 to £495 to £1125 for the task of creating a csv export facility from a CMS.
Due to the miss quoting they have offered to do the work for £750 now this still seems rather high considering exporting the data directly from the SQL server can be done relatively easly, The site is basic php, I would not thave thought it would be so expensive.
