The "pubmed.irb" included in the package is doing exactly what you want.  
 
You can also watch demo videos at http://irobotsoft.com/help/ for how to do it.  It will be very useful if you simply recreate the pubmed irb following the demo.

Sorry, the pubmed page has changed recently.  We have make a new release with a fix.  
 
Please download the new package at:
http://irobotsoft.com/irobot-eval.zip
 
 or the pubmed robot at:  
http://irobotsoft.com/robots/pubmed.irb.  
 
Data should be scraped to literature.txt.  Let us know if you still cannot find the scraped data.

You will need to change the target format.  
 
Under the "save" task, find the last action "Schedule task", right click it and select "Save variable...".  Then on the Save Variables page, change the target type: XML file to "CSV file".  Rerun it, and the data will be in csv format.  You can change the Save to file name to .csv or just rename the file to .csv.
