Searching Data In Google To See If Linked To Website?
Jul 22, 2014
I'm trying to see if there is a way to speed up the process of doing multiple Google searches to see if I can find a website attached to a text. I have a list of websites, and am trying to update the list to remove dead/inactive sites, and also find the URLs for the live sites.
The list looks like this (sample):
Crains Chicago Business
Crains Detroit Business
Thus there's no website attached, and I need to manually find the URL myself. There are over a thousand cells in the list.
How to speed up the process of finding a url for these websites?
I have a googlespreadsheet with 4 columns. date, id, name, positive/negative.
What I would like to be able to do is to call a procedure from an excel document to copy/retrieve all of the information between specified dates on the google spreadsheet and place into another worksheet in the excel document.
The spreadsheet is hosted in my googledrive and is confidential (i.e. I cannot publish it), so I am assuming I will need to add password credentials into the code, which will be an added complication.
I am trying to import competitor data into excel using google finance, but when I try to run the web query I get the message that "this web query returned no data." I have no problems when using yahoo finance and other websites so I think it has something to do with google, but I don't know what it is. I have been searching for some time now without any luck. My end goal is to make this a dynamic web query and incorporate it into a VBA code, but I need to get the web query to work first. Below is the text of the web query.
WEB 1 http://www.google.com/finance?q=COH# Selection=cc-table Formatting=None PreFormattedTextToColumns=True ConsecutiveDelimitersAsOne=True SingleBlockTextImport=False DisableDateRecognition=False DisableRedirections=False
I use Google Spreadsheet to feed some data online. Later on I use Excel to import this data that it is hosted at Google to do a better handling (reports, charts, etc). However when I import the data from Google, the contents of 1 row is splitted on 4 in Excel.
Are there any way to keep the same formatting from the original ?
I have a tedious task of copy/paste from our website. have a look at below sample data. I have around 1500 rows of data like this.
Sheet1 A B
Column A has input data which i need to copy and paste in a web form. Column B will have results scrapped form webpage[ URL]. This webpage will need login details
If a code can be written which take value form column A of spreadsheet and paste in webpage like shown in above image and hit search button. Next webpage will be loaded with number of results like shown in below. Take the number of results and paste in column B of spreadsheet.
I looked at the source code of the website and realized that if you notice (above) that the variables listed in the link (i.e year, month, day) are exactly what i need to change in order to get the data for a specific date. how can I accomplish this using VBA. so say I have in on an excel sheet year in column A, month in column B, and days in column C (time interval is constant so we don't have to worry about stime and etime). and i run the macro and it loops through each row taking year,month,day for all rows and saving the data as .csv or xls files?
retrieving data from financial website databases like yahoofinance.com and bloomberg.com. I'm trying to make an automatic stock analysis model to read from the website database and retrieve the data into excel sheets. For example, when opening the excel model the user gets a popup to enter the stock ticker, the user enters the ticker and gets a set of data. Is this do-able in excel?
I have written a macro to pull in data from a website each day. However the macro falls over because the end of the url changes slightly each day as the website provider updates the information. Unfortunately there does not appear to be a logical pattern to the number change in the url and so I donít think I can pre-empt what the change will be. The path through the website remains the same, but the url changes as a new csv document replaces the old one. Is there any way of writing the macro so that it opens/picks up the current url rather than a fixed url?
I went through the thread http://www.mrexcel.com/forum/showthread.php?t=302438. I have similar problem of pulling the data from http://www.nseindia.com/ site. Could you please help me?
The navigation to the page required is as below.
http://www.nseindia.com/ > Equity > Historical Data > Security-wise data >
eg. NSE Symbol: RPL, Series: ALL, From date: 01-01-2008, To date: 01-05-2008.
After clicking on the 'Get Results' button it navigates to the page with tables. At the end it says "Download file in csv format". upon clicking this a csv file opens. (http://www.nseindia.com/content/equi...-2008RPLXN.csv)
I need this page to be opened in Excel sheet. How should I go ahead? (Basically I need historical stock data csv files of various stocks)
Even though a simple web query opens the page, it do not work if the parameters (stock name, date) are changed.
I found that the last resulting page in csv is using a "REFERRAL URL". Could this be a problem? How to get around?
I know little bit of VBA and can further work to pass variables.
I have managed to manipulate a website by entering some dates into the input boxes then go to another page with the information I need. I am wondering if anyone knows a macro I can use to copy the data directly to a new worksheet?
I've only recently ventured into the VBA scripting and am finding it quite exciting. After doing some trivial stuff, I'm trying to work with websites. Currently, I'm trying to pull data off of a website which poses a form which has to be filled first. I've been successful in filling the form and clicking submit, through the code, but the site opens the results in a separate tab in IE. I am unable to make it go to that tab and copy-paste data from there.
Secondly, instead of just blindly copy pasting, it would be better if the data is pasted in a more readable format (as on the website). The following code is plainly copying and pasting the data as-is and hence rendering it unreadable:
I am an excel novice trying to create a list of local churches. There are several online lists that I am taking the data from but, being a novice, I am entering the data manually. How to set up a method to bring the data into excel and order it where I want it.
I am attaching the spreadsheet.
These are the websites I am taking my data from: [URL]
Doing all 47 pages at once may cause their site to block your IP. Though usually only temporarily - a few minutes to a few days. You could do it in sessions by changing "For i = 1 To 47" to the appropriate page numbers. After each session be sure to rename the "Stats" sheet as the code starts by deleting and re-creating it. After all sessions combine the various "Stat" sheets.
Doing all 47 at once will take a few minutes to complete and you won't see anything happening. The cursor will only spin occasionally. You wil get "Query complete" when it finishes.
Sub QueryWeb() Dim i As Integer Dim firstRow As Integer Dim lastRow As Integer Dim nextRow As Integer Dim URLstart As String Dim URLend As String
This code works like charm. Is is possible to develop a code like this which open each each name from this page- [URL]....
copy details like Attorney Name, email, phone and fax nos. and paste the same into excel rows.

I have a bunch of lists I would like to copy from a website. I'm trying to copy them into excel using an external data query but the information I'm trying to grab doesn't export. I tried selecting various tables within the webpage.
I am importing some data from a website into several sheets but when I refresh it I am not able to access the data as numbers. I am using a sumif to collect the data. See the attached sheet. if there is a way to do this without sumif, that would work as well, but my numbers are not copying over to the main sheet because they are not being imported as numbers. also when the a and c are changed on the main sheet i want the values to change with them.
Working in Windows 8 excel. I am copying data from a website and entering that data onto a spread sheet. There are certain websites where the data does not transfer on the first try. It sometimes takes up to trying 3 times before the data will download onto the spread sheet. Why is that? And is there anything I can do to get it to transfer on the first try?
I have a problem with text to columns with data downloaded from our website. The address field is coming through with the whole address in a single cell with multiple rows. I have tried the following but all I get is the first row in the first colimn and the rest of the data:
Text to Columns, Delimited, Other and ALT-0010 Text to Columns, Delimited, Other and ALT-010 Text to Columns, Delimited, Other and ctrl-j
I have even created a macro to replace the hard returns with commas and then use comma as a delimiter but that still does the same.
I have attached a file with two of the records (1 tab for the original data and one with the commas)
Finally, I have tried this in both 2003 & 2010 and get the same issue in both.
My Excel Spreadsheet has columns named "Hospital Name | Overview | Address | Phone | Fax | Contact Person 1 | Contact Person 1 Title | Contact Person 2 | Contact Person 2 Title | Contact Person 3 | Contact Person 3 Title"
There is the list of hospitals starting from "Abbott Northwestern Hospital". I have two things in my mind to extract the information. If you click on the first hospital name "Abbott Northwestern Hospital". Below is an example text which I would like to transfer it automatically in columns given above;
This text should go in column named "Overview":
Abbott Northwestern Hospital bring twins into the Twin Cities -- along with triplets, quadruplets............
This text should go in column named "Address": 800 E. 28th St.Minneapolis, MN 55407
This text should go in column named "Phone": 612-863-4000
This text should go in column named "Fax": 612-863-5667
This text should go in column named "Contact Person 1": Jeffrey D. (Jeff) Peterson
This text should go in column named "Contact Person 1 Title": President
This text should go in column named "Contact Person 2": Daryl Schroeder
This text should go in column named "Contact Person 2 Title": VP Operations
This text should go in column named "Contact Person 3": Sandy Schmitt
This text should go in column named "Contact Person 3 Title": VP Strategic Development, Allina Hospitals and Clinics
I recently created a spreadsheet to calculate the value of certain stocks. I chose to do the s&p 500. It can take a while to manually get the info I need, so I looked to videos on vba writing and different solutions. I do not want to use web queries. Rather, I'd like to use a simple formula that pulls the necessary "single" item from a webpage and puts in a cell, then I will simply copy and paste that cell for all stocks.
from my online endeavors and inquiries, I put together this POS:
Function vi_Price(ByVal Symbol As String) Dim IE As New InternetExplorer IE.navigate "[URL]... Do DoEvents
Using Google Chrome, I tried to find the "element" that I need. In this case, the last close price at the top of the webpage. It's hard to distinguish which it is. If I can just get the code to work for the price, I think I can modify it for the other 3 items I need.
I would like to be able to have Excel VBA pull down the data from the following website.
The first URL will take you to the website, but you then need to select a state shown in bold from the Radio side of the index window in the middle of the screen. Once at the next screen, this is the table I wish to download into excel.
I want to do this for all the states listed. How can I do this or is it possible since you have to select a state prior to the listing.
