I'd like to simply import the closing total of the DOW jones industrial average into a single cell in my spreadsheet.

It can be from any financial website, like Marketwatch,  Yahoo Finance, etc.

Thanks.

Hi,

pls refer to  http://www.financial-modelling.net/tutorials/excel/open-excel-retrieve-stock-quotes-in-a-formula

Code DJIA

Function StockQuote(strTicker As String, Optional dtDate As Variant)
' Date is optional - if omitted, use today. If value is not a date, throw error.
If IsMissing(dtDate) Then
dtDate = Date
Else
If Not (IsDate(dtDate)) Then
StockQuote = CVErr(xlErrNum)
End If
End If

Dim dtPrevDate As Date
Dim strURL As String, strCSV As String, strRows() As String, strColumns() As String
Dim dbClose As Double

dtPrevDate = dtDate - 7

' Compile the request URL with start date and end date
strURL = "http://ichart.finance.yahoo.com/table.csv?s=" & strTicker & _
"&a=" & Month(dtPrevDate) - 1 & _
"&b=" & Day(dtPrevDate) & _
"&c=" & Year(dtPrevDate) & _
"&d=" & Month(dtDate) - 1 & _
"&e=" & Day(dtDate) & _
"&f=" & Year(dtDate) & _
"&g=d&ignore=.csv"

' Debug.Print strURL

Set http = CreateObject("MSXML2.XMLHTTP")
http.Open "GET", strURL, False
http.Send
strCSV = http.responseText

' Debug.Print strCSV

' The most recent information is in row 2, just below the table headings.
' The price close is the 5th entry
strRows() = Split(strCSV, Chr(10)) ' split the CSV into rows
strColumns = Split(strRows(1), ",") ' split the relevant row into columns. 1 means 2nd row, starting at index 0
dbClose = strColumns(4) ' 4 means: 5th position, starting at index 0

' Debug.Print vbLf
' Debug.Print strRows(1)
' Debug.Print "dbClose: " & dbClose

StockQuote = dbClose

Set http = Nothing

End Function

Open in new window
