=RCHGetTableCell("http://performance.morningstar.com/Performance/fund/trailing-total-returns.action?t= http://performance.morningstar.com/Performance/fund/trailing-total-returns.action?t="&D2,6,"class=""row_lbl""")

returns 'Error' for all but 3 symbols (VEDIX, VEDTX, & WHOSX).

Also, it no longer formats as 'percent'

I can't investigate those it didn't work on if you tell me those it did
work on. I just tried a few more examples, and they worked fine for me. Did
you check out the URLs for those that didn't work?

It doesn't format as a percent because of the way it's presented on the web
page. You can always divide by 100.

I just looked at the first two. They haven't been around a year.

The URL would need to have the ticker symbol appended, like it does in the
formula.

Well, actually the numbers are correct, but no longer adds the '%' sign.

20.37 http://performance.morningstar.com/Performance/fund/trailing-total-returns.action?t= 26.66 http://performance.morningstar.com/Performance/fund/trailing-total-returns.action?t= 40.59 http://performance.morningstar.com/Performance/fund/trailing-total-returns.action?t=

OK, I clicked the url in the spreadsheet, and then appended the ticker to the url and got this page;

http://performance.morningstar.com/Performance/fund/trailing-total-returns.action?t=eqchx http://performance.morningstar.com/Performance/fund/trailing-total-returns.action?t=eqchx

OK, well using MS Office Pro 2010 on WinPro 7 it does not work.

Yahoo works, mostly, so I'll stick with that.

Thanks, anyway!

Please see what I have wrong

Well, the function invocation you're using is saying to look for the
">Strike" header line of the table and then go back a row. Since ">Strike"
is in the first row of the table, that gives you an "Error" result because
it can't find anything there. Also, your generated URL is wrong -- you've
added an extraneous "=" before the ticker symbol.

What are you trying to pull? The first strike price available? If so:

=RCHGetTableCell("http://www.barchart.com/options/stocks/
"&B2,1,">Strike",,,,1)

Hi Randy,
I'm trying to access data form Gurufocus using below formula, bust cell is empty, not pulling any data. RCHGetTableCell("http://www.gurufocus.com/stock/"&A5&"",1,"PFCF")
But seems some other data working fine like RCHGetTableCell("http://www.gurufocus.com/stock/"&A5&"",1,"ROIC")
would you pls. help me.Thanks in advance.
Regards,Malli

That's because you're using a bad search string. The function will key off
the first occurrence of that string it finds. In the case of "PFCF", there
are nearly a dozen before that table entry, because it's used as part of
HTML tag processing. That's why I usually use the ">" trick, but it can
ONLY be used if the web page is written that way. It may be necessary to
look at the source code of the web page to come up with good search
strings. For example, this works:

=RCHGetTableCell("http://www.gurufocus.com/stock/"&B4,1,">PFCF")

Have you looked that the GuruFocus model/template that another add-in user
has uploaded to the "Uploads by Forum Members" folder of the FILES area of
the Yahoo group? You could save yourself a lot of work...

I use the SMF macros to get the value of my stocks. However, sometimes it does. In one case, I was seeing it switch between today's closing value and yesterday's closing value. The stock in question was Exxon Mobil whose symbol is XOM. I wold not expect the value of a stock to change much after 4:15. I am thinking Yahoo is having problems. Is anybody having any similar issues?


The call I use to get the value of the stock is:
=RCHGetYahooQuotes( "XOM", "l1",,NOW() )

I'm not seeing it now. Perhaps they had a server that wasn't updated, so
whenever a request came from that server, it reverted back to the prior
day's close? Hard to say...

I have been seeing this for the last few days on several spreadsheets that use RCHGetYahooQuotes. The values should automatically update each time I open the file, but since last Wed I've found that I get differing values. Sometimes they're correct, sometimes it's the previous day's closing, other times it's something random. I've checked against the Yahoo Finance site and the data on the site is correct, so I'm not sure how/why this is happening. Nine times out of 10 it is fixed by just re-entering the stock symbol in the correct cell of the spreadsheet - I use the formula =RCHGetYahooQuotes([cell reference], "l1"). But I've got hundred of stocks I track so that is getting a little tedious. If anyone figures out a fix please post.
