I'm experiencing a long processing time for about 10 minutes, on what used to be less than a minute, for the RCHGetYahooQuotes array to process. At the end of the processing the array sheet is blank except for the first cell which shows ERROR. I've tried the Regenerate and Fix Links functions with no help. I've rebooted (Windows 10) a couple of times and restarted (Excel 13) as well but nothing changes. Excel will actually go into "not responding" mode a few times and then come back to active. What do you think? Jim

I ran into that myself earlier today. The problem is on the Yahoo side --
the CSV file requests are taking a long time. When I looked at my log file,
those requests were taking anywhere from 20 to 50 seconds each, instead of
the usual half-second.

Hi All,


I'm trying to retrieve the "Average Price/Earnings" ratio for an ETF from Yahoo with the RCHGetElementNumber() function.


I looked up the Element number as either 5184 or 5190 from Yahoo data elements (http://ogres-crypt.com/SMF/Elements/smf-elements-2.txt http://ogres-crypt.com/SMF/Elements/smf-elements-2.txt), and I entered the function as =RCHGetElementNumber("VTI";,5184).


I tried both Element numbers with different ETFs and always get "Error." I also tried other Element numbers and it seems like anything after "5182" for the Yahoo Holdings page returns an error. Element numbers before 5183 return values correctly.


Am I doing this incorrectly, or is there another way to return the Average P/E for an ETF?


Thanks in advance for your help!


Victor

Hi All,


I'm having trouble retrieving "Average Price/Earnings" for an ETF off the Yahoo Holdings page using the RCHGetElementNumber function.


I looked up the Element number for Average Price/Earnings as either 5184 or 5190 from Yahoo data elements (http://ogres-crypt.com/SMF/Elements/smf-elements-2.txt), and entered the function as =RCHGetElementNumber("SPY";,5184).


I tried both Element numbers and different ETFs, but only get "Error" returned. Also, it seems like all element numbers past 5183 on the Holdings page return errors.


Am I doing something incorrectly, or is there another way to retrieve the Average Price/Earnings value for ETFs?


Thanks in advance for your help.


Victor

Looks like they've changed some tags on the web page. For now, the
work-around:

=RCHGetTableCell("http://finance.yahoo.com/q/hl?s="&D4,1,">Equity
Holdings","Price/Earnings")

Oops. Wrong answer. It appears those items are presented differently for
ETFs, so the elements numbers will only work for mutual funds.
