Very nice, Coolboy!

If you make revisions, I might suggest that you have separate fields for first and last names and that you extract the first name as well. In other words, if I search for the last name of Brown and Bill Brown is my choice among several hits, it would be nice for Bill Brown (not just Brown) to be put into the fields.

It would also be quite helpful to be able to be able to import a list of names and cycle through them one at a time, looking up phone numbers, etc., and populating a table.

But it's mighty nice the way it is!

Thanks!

Yes, the new features are quite nice! Thanks for the improvements and additions!

I'll give it a test on an old list that used with 411.com with the Open URL script step and then copied and pasted into the database. Very inefficient.
