I logged into Yahoo.com using the Excel Web Query dialog but in trying the sample file smfGetYahooPortfolioView-Example I'm getting some strange output. Here are lines 2-4 of that spreadsheet:

1 2 3 4 7 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17
Tickers Time & Price Chg & % Chg Volume Chart More Info
MMM 12:15pm EDT $180.87 $2.05 1.15% 626,628 Chart, News, Stats, Options, Board  ED 12:15pm EDT 78.2 -0.1 $0.00



Columns 1-7 look all right but then it goes haywire. It looks like columns 13-17 are picking up info from the next ticker "ED" and displaying some of the ED data on the MMM line.


I've included my file, but what you see when you open it up may not be what I see.

Your attachment looks fine on my machine, because Yahoo is using my "v1"
view definition when the data is retrieved.

In order to get what I see, you would also need to customize your "Basic"
(i.e. "v1") view under Yahoo Portfolios in order to have the same fields
available. Mine are:

TIME & PRICE
CHG & % CHG
DAY'S LOW & HIGH
VOLUME
AVG VOL
MKT CAP
BID
ASK
YIELD
DIV/SHARE
EX-DIV DATE
P/E
PRICE/SALES
1-YR TRGT PRICE

The default "Basic" view only contains:

SYMBOL
TIME & PRICE
CHG & % CHG
DAY'S LOW & HIGH
VOLUME
AVG VOL
MKT CAP
CHART
MORE INFO

So only fields 1 thru 9 would be of any use with that view definition. It
depends on what fields you need. For my purposes, I wanted bid and ask
prices. But they aren't available on any of the default views.

You can always see the "raw" table from your view with something like:

=RCHGetHTMLTable("https://finance.yahoo.com/quotes/MCD,IBM/view/v1
",">Symbol")

Under "My Portfoliois" I went to Add Custom View where I initially created a view called "v1" with all your fields. That didn't work so I renamed that to "Basic" but nothing changed. Going back to Add Custom View it shows 7 views listed on the right side. They are Basic, Details, Pre/After Market, Fundamentals, Moving Averages, Estimates, and Portfolios. The Yahoo Basic view, the first in the last sentence has the following fields:

Symbol Name
Currency Exchange
Time & Price Price
Last Trd Time Chg & % Chg
Change % Chg
Volume Avg Vol
More Info Chart


The "Basic" view I created doesn't seem to affect Yahoo's Basic view. How do you change Yahoo's Basic view?

Why are you renaming the views?

Yahoo's "Basic" view is assigned the "v1" view tag. You can rename it to
anything you want and it will still be the "v1" view. You can even create a
second "Basic" view, but it will have a different view tag in the URL.

When you click on a view tab in the portfolio, look at the URL for it. In
FireFox, I can hover over the tabs, and it will tell me what the URL is for
each one. You want to change the one that has "v1" in the URL.

OK, so in the first tab under "My Portfolios" I can see the "v1" in the URL and that view now has all your fields in it. But that doesn't change anything in the example spreadsheet.

BTW, you did do an smfForceRecalculation after changing your view on Yahoo,
right? It needs to pick up a new copy of the web page, with that definition.

What fields do you see with:

=RCHGetHTMLTable("https://finance.yahoo.com/quotes/MCD,IBM/view/v1

with two lines that look like the right info for MCD and IBM, but without those tickers showing.

Looks like you have everything set up correctly. And the template isn't
working? Did you try smfForceRecalculation?

BTW, when I've been trying these things in the browser, I sometimes get an
error message from Yahoo that says to try again later. If that happens with
the function, all spaces will be returned. It's usually fixed by hitting
smfForceRecalculation again. Another way would be to go down and add a
symbol you don't care about. I sometimes do an "x" or a "y".

​If you want the function to return symbols, just use the "00" or 0 field
number.

I've exited Excel and started the sample spreadsheet up again and I just added a ReCalc button, but nothing changes the spreadsheet. I haven't gotten the message to try again later.

Try these two array-entered formulas:

=RCHGetHTMLTable("https://finance.yahoo.com/quotes/MCD,IBM/view/v1
",">Symbol")

=smfGetYahooPortfolioView("MCD,IBM",,,1)

They should be very similar, but there are three differences you should be
able to notice:

1. The ticker symbols are cleaned up on the second formula.
2. The yield has been adjusted to be a value that can be formatted as a
percentage
3. The ex-div date has been converted from a text string to a serial date
value

Such as:

Symbol Time & Price Chg & % Chg Day's Low & High Volume Avg Vol Mkt
Cap Bid Ask Yield Div/Share Ex-Div Date P/E Price/Sales 1-Yr Trgt Price
 MCD 04:00pm EDT 119.38 0.58 0.0049 118.85 119.75 3489115 5424580 101870000
119.1 119.49 3.01 3.56 Tue, Aug 30, 2016, 1:00AM EDT 22.8 4.03 130.29

Yup. They were both showing the Yahoo default view for "v1". So if you've
made changes to it, you probably don't have the security cookie in place
for EXCEL and the add-in to use.

You can double check by using the EXCEL Web Query dialog and navigate to

https://finance.yahoo.com/quotes/MCD,IBM/view/v1

...and see if you get the default view or your customized view. You can
just cancel out. You don't need to import anything.

Or, in the EXCEL Web Query dialog, navigate to:

https://login.yahoo.com/config/login

...and see if it says to "Sign in" (meaning you need to log in) or asks if
it's "Not you?" (meaning you are logged in).

OK, so I did this:

You can double check by using the EXCEL Web Query dialog and navigate to
https://finance.yahoo.com/quotes/MCD,IBM/view/v1 https://finance.yahoo.com/quotes/MCD,IBM/view/v1


and I got the default view, not my cusomized view. So I did this:


Or, in the EXCEL Web Query dialog, navigate to:
https://login.yahoo.com/config/login https://login.yahoo.com/config/login


and logged in, and then went to
https://finance.yahoo.com/quotes/MCD,IBM/view/v1 https://finance.yahoo.com/quotes/MCD,IBM/view/v1


and I see the customized view.


Then I go to the example spreadsheet, Recalculate, and
I see the picture attached. The field names are there, but a bit jumbled up, but only 1 line
of data and mostly wrong. I seem to be going backwards.
