Hello,

do you want to export data from Excel to somewhere else? Or do you want to export data from <somewhere> to Excel?

Please provide a few more details about the scenario. What system requires a password?

cheers, teylyn

You could export it to a text file and then import it into excel, I believe in that address I posted above there is a little guide for this.

Hello,

when you click the Data ribbon and then the button "From Web", you can connect to the web site, log in and export data into Excel. It is probably possible to automate these steps with a macro that will enter your credentials when establishing the connection.

That will very much depend on how the web site is structured and how the data can be accessed.

See this article from Tech Republic  http://www.techrepublic.com/article/pull-data-into-microsoft-excel-with-web-queries/6115870

Also, read the comment in that article: http://www.techrepublic.com/forum/discussions/5-200975-2649824?tag=discussion-asset-thread

The normal approach is to create the query manually (as outlined in the article linked to above) and then use VBA to refresh and parametrise the query.

Building the query from scratch requires knowledge of the exact structure of the web site you want to query. Unless you have that background information, you don't have a starting point.

Here is code to create a web query with VBA from scratch for a Yahoo site. http://www.java2s.com/Code/VBA-Excel-Access-Word/Access/BuildingaNewWebQuerywithVBA.htm
