Need help with my school project!!

Hi,

My professor asked me to prepare a 1 hour presentation on Mercedes benz.

I am looking for some data sheet in XL or MS Word which categorizes all current models of MErcedes Benz, their sprecifications and price.

I tried using Mercedes website, and the comparision tool, but I can chose only 4 models at one time and I cant copy-paste specifications from there! Moreover soecifications are listed in different tabbed pages which actually makes it more difficult to compare different models of mercedes.

Can anyone help me?!!

Work on your writing skills first, in particular basic spelling, and then we'll talk. If the post happens to be made from Blackberry or cellphone, my apologies. Still, if you are making a request to a group of strangers, especially a favor, you might as well learn to write well and earn the respect.

I'm I being an ass?

Perhaps, but come job hunting season, you'll thank somebody in your life who told you to pay attention to details, as cover letters and resumes fraught with speling errors and abused apostrophe's will find their way straight to the trash pile, regardless of how illustrious and decorated the candidate's achievements may be.

Also, you are basically asking someone else to do the homework for you. Yes, I tried to cut and paste from a MB website and it is not a one-shot deal. You'll have to make a table first and then start cutting and pasting each data at a time from their website. Then again, there are plenty of websites devoted to Mercedes Benz or car sites like Edmunds.com that may have more cut-and-paste friendly specifications page.
What you are expecting is an easy way out, and I smell an unsavory sense of entitlement that you are above all that drudgery.

Do it the hard way, earn an 'A' and the professor's respect. You'll feel better about yourself than to outsource, cheat, and feel smug getting away with it.

Wikipedia has a great series of articles on Mercedes. Sorry if you'll actually need to type, heaven forbid, or figure out Excel's "Text to Columns" feature. It's very, very complete and informative.
