Hassle Free Web Data in Excel 2007

Sunday, November 9th, 2008 by | Filed Under: MS Excel, MS Office Help

Hassle Free Web Data in Excel 2007

So, you have data on a Web page and you need to move it into an MS Excel worksheet.

What are you planning to do?

Copy/paste each piece of data? Re-enter the data?

Well, I vote you import the data directly from the Web and avoid all the transfer time.

If you’re on board with that idea, let’s take a look!

  • First, you need to locate the Web page with the data you need.

  • Now, copy the URL of the Web page.

  • Next, it’s off to Excel 2007 and the Data tab on the ribbon.

  • Under the Get External Data section, click on the From Web button.

  • Paste the URL into the address bar when the New Web Query dialogue window opens.

  • Use either the Go button or the Enter key to navigate to the Web page with your data.

  • Once you’re on the page, you’ll find that Excel has marked tables with a little yellow arrow.

  • Click on the arrow of the table you want to import.

  • To finish, click on the Import button.

  • The Import Data dialogue window will then ask you to tell Excel where to put the data.

  • Make a choice and then click OK.

Voila. Data tables in Excel 2007 with minimal effort!
