I have this php website link  

previously, i had a link https://treasury.un.org/operationalrates/xsql2XML.php  which was working fine importing the XML data into excel using normal data connection. i had put workbook open event with Refresh.all  and it was updating my data from the XML source link.

somehow it stopped working.  if i open the link https://treasury.un.org/operationalrates/xsql2XML.php  it downloads the XML file, and if i use the downloaded XML file then it work, however, if i put this https://treasury.un.org/operationalrates/xsql2XML.php into data connection to directly fetch data, ideally it should work but it does not.

any help is appreciated.

i don't care whether it is a normal solution or VBA, as long as i can get my data updated from the source https://treasury.un.org/operationalrates/xsql2XML.php

thanks.

What is the PHP part of this question?  Are you looking for a PHP script that will read the XML document?
