Chapter 18. Importing Business Data into Excel > Creating and Using Web Queries

Creating and Using Web Queries

Chapter 7, “Ratio Analysis,” discussed a variety of indicators of a company's financial status. It did not go into detail about where to find those indicators or how best to get them into an Excel worksheet. This section shows you one good way.

A Web query is a special kind of query: it obtains data not from a database but from Web pages, which are usually constructed using Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) or one of its variants such as Extended Markup Language (XML). Web queries return data from the Web page directly to your Excel worksheet.
