Hi there,

Your question is a little vague. Could you be more specific about what you're trying to do along with the expected results?

Hi

Power Query allows the user to search the net for information. This includes financial market data. I just wanted to know if it could specifically look for share prices from one of the major markets

I'm familiar with Power Query, but the question is still a little vague. It allows you to do quite a bit more than get data from the web, but that is one portion of it. If you want to get web information, you need to know a website first.

Do you have a specific place in mind, or are you just asking what a good website would be to get share prices? We can't really give you anything as vague as the question is, the answers are too vague as well.

A lot of times people who are serious about getting financial information pay for a subscription to get live data, on request, and up to date. I've used Yahoo Financial before. You just need the company code. For example, this brings you to Microsoft's financial information:

http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=MSFT

Another example would be Sprint is "S", so you change the "MSFT" above with "S" and you'll get Sprint's information. Add this URL to your Power Query and you'll get a few tables of information.
