Thank you Ms. Scannell,

This is great. Is it at all possible to receive the data in a spreadsheet rather than a PDF? As it stands we would be unable to use the data without manually extracting each line and a spreadsheet would be enormously helpful.

Please let me know if that would be possible?

Much obliged,
Colin Gerber
