In many cases we want to say about the target object in an article but I feel lack of synonyms for these occasions

I just know

  • Data of Interest
  • The desired Data

What are the other ways?

In my case the user wants to extract specific or desired data from a web page, for example suppose you want just the question section not irrelevant bars on this page.

  • You could try expanding a little on what you're trying to accomplish by that term. At this moment only "crucial" comes to mind... – Victor Bazarov Aug 25 '15 at 20:04

  • I have seen only "of interest" in journals ! ( about the mathematical goals and expressions ) – Cardinal Aug 25 '15 at 20:29

In many cases we want to say about the target object

There's nothing wrong with exactly that:

  • The target data.

All by itself, that could be considered ambiguous; does this mean to produce data within certain parameters, or acquire it? Desired and pretty much anything else is going to suffer the same ambiguity unless it is strung together with other qualifiers in something very awkward. Based on your comment (that it involves scraping HTML), the context makes it clear: we want to extract data within certain parameters (not stuff in the header, footer, etc.).

If the type of data to extract has been defined by a set of criteria, then it has been specified.

  • the specified [type of] data
