Adding stock prices to an excel spreadsheet

Adding stock prices to an excel spreadsheet

Adding stock prices to an excel spreadsheet

I'm trying to add stock prices to an Excel spreadsheet.

I have a column with stock symbols.

I am trying to use MSN MoneyCentral Investor Stock Quotes.
I clicked on the data tap, the on connection and added the "MSN MoneyCentral Investor Stock Quotes"
I clicked on properties and checked the option "enable background refresh"
I clicked on the data tab then on Existing connections and opened it.
I selection one cell.
I even typed in "IBM"
I get the message "Unable to open http://moneycentral.msn.com/investor/external/exce...

Do I need to subscribe to something?

Thanks in advance.

RE: Adding stock prices to an excel spreadsheet

The link is not valid, so the error. Most likely the site was rebuilt in the meantime. You can either repair the connection or create new import of external data (web).
