Hi Randy

I can't capture the stock data from this web :
*http://www.etnet.com.hk/www/eng/stocks/realtime/quote.php?code=1
<http://www.etnet.com.hk/www/eng/stocks/realtime/quote.php?code=1>*

with using Function :

=smfGetTagContent("
http://www.etnet.com.hk/www/eng/stocks/realtime/quote.php?code=1,"span",1,">MKT
Cap")

Besides, I would like to capture the price change percentage of "+1.147%"
from the web. How can I use smfStrExtr() Function or using excel function
MID(smfGetTagContent...,) instead.

I also find when I open the spreadsheet every time, it load & renew all
data with a lot of time and even hang the excel. Any setting could improve?

Many thanks for your help please.

Best Regards,

Eric

Except for the missing double quote, your formula worked for me. But try:

=smfConvertData(smfGetTagContent("
http://www.etnet.com.hk/www/eng/stocks/realtime/quote.php?code=1","span",1,">MKT
Cap"))

=smfConvertData(smfStrExtr(RCHGetTableCell("
http://www.etnet.com.hk/www/eng/stocks/realtime/quote.php?code=1
",1,"id=""StkDetailMainBox"""),"(",")"))

If you're getting data from a lot of web pages, it will take some time for
everything to update. You can combine data requests in the
RCHGetYahooQuotes() function, but not if you're doing a lot of functions
similar to the above two.

Hello Randy and everyone,


Any suggestions on this one? This doesn't seem to work very well -- it picks up tickers that aren't even on the page which is strange.


For the formula below I want to see: GOOG but I'm getting AAPL instead


=smfGetTagContent("http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=aapl&fr=uh3_finance_web&uhb=uhb2","strong",1,"also viewed:")



when changing the reference to 2, I get PCLN but as you can see below I should be getting AMZN.


>People viewing <b>AAPL</b> also viewed:<span> <a href="/q?s=GOOG&reco=1 http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=GOOG&reco=1"><strong>GOOG</strong></a> <a href="/q?s=AMZN&reco=1 http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=AMZN&reco=1"><strong>AMZN</strong></a> <a href="/q?s=PCLN&reco=1 http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=PCLN&reco=1"><strong>PCLN</strong></a> <a href="/q?s=BIDU&reco=1 http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=BIDU&reco=1"><strong>BIDU</strong></a> <a href="/q?s=NFLX&reco=1 http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=NFLX&reco=1"><strong>NFLX</strong></a> <a href="/q?s=MSFT&reco=1 http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=MSFT&reco=1"><strong>MSFT</strong>

AAPL is the correct extraction based on the source code of the web page
that I see:

also viewed:<span> <a href="/q?s=APPL&reco=1"><strong>APPL</strong></a>
<a href="/q?s=PCLN&reco=1"><strong>PCLN</strong></a> <a
href="/q?s=GOOG&reco=1"><strong>GOOG</strong></a> <a
href="/q?s=AMZN&reco=1"><strong>AMZN</strong></a> <a
href="/q?s=MA&reco=1"><strong>MA</strong></a> <a
href="/q?s=CMG&reco=1"><strong>CMG</strong></a></span></div>

Perhaps different refreshes of that web page return a different order of
the ticker symbols? Plus, the values may change quite often?

If you're using the beta version of the add-in, you can use the new
smfStripHTML() utility function like this:

=smfStripHTML(smfGetTagContent("
http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=aapl&fr=uh3_finance_web&uhb=uhb2","span",1,"also
viewed:"))

...and get the whole list without HTML code:

APPL PCLN GOOG AMZN MA CMG

Thanks very much Randy, yes its probably a refresh issue. I will check out the beta addin -- sounds like exactly what I need.

Hey Randy, I installed the beta version of the add-in and am really impressed. I noticed the drop-down menu from right clicking. If you are taking requests, a great feature for the add-in would somehow be able to right click a cell in Excel and have it call up a corresponding webpage like Yahoo Finance. Or is there something like that available already from somewhere else? The HTML snip feature worked great, thanks.

The drop-down menu was suggested and mostly implemented by Andrei
Radulescu-Banu, another user of the add-in.

The ability to click through to a web page is already within normal EXCEL.
Just do something like:

=HYPERLINK("http://finance.yahoo.com/q/ks?s=MMM","Yahoo Key Statistics for
MMM")

...or even:

=HYPERLINK("http://finance.yahoo.com/q/ks?s=MMM
",RCHGetElementNumber("MMM",941))

And, BTW, with the beta version of the add-in, you can automatically call
the smfStripHTML() and smfConvertData() functions directly from
smfGetTagContent(). For example:

=smfGetTagContent("
http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=aapl&fr=uh3_finance_web&uhb=uhb2","span",1,"also
viewed:",,,,1)

The last "1" parameter tells the function to first call smfStripHTML() and
then call smfConvertData() to attempt to convert whatever is left into a
numeric value.

Hello,


I am calling this:
=smfGetOptionQuotes("msft may 2015 $42 Call","6",,"OX2")



to get implied volatility for the specified call and it gives me "error".


What am I doing wrong here?

Are you using the beta version of the add-in? "May 2015" will not work with
the older version of the add-in, because they changed the monthly add-in
expiration dates in February to be on a Friday instead of a Saturday, to
match the weekly options.

Otherwise, you should be able to manually code the date, as in:

=smfGetOptionQuotes("msft 5/15 2015 $42 Call","6",,"OX2")
