 Telnet and Access

I'm looking up stock information from a program at another university.
To access it, I use telnet. To get the information that I want is a
pain, however:  Using sendkeys, I highlight everything and copy the
information on the screen to the clipboard. Next, I open notepad (using
call) and paste the data into notepad. I then save the data. {Keep in
mind that all of this is using sendkeys}. Then, I use the open and line
input commands to read in the data that I need.

The program works, but is extremely slow, and doesn't allow me to do
anything else at the computer while it is running. I have around 2500
records to do this search for. Is there some way to use DDE with telnet
so I can get my information and have it work in the background so I can
work on something else while this is going on?

I'd appreciate any help I can get.
