Hi Randy,


I hope you could help me about smfGetTagContent.


I'm trying to get the number of employees from the link:
=smfGetTagContent("http://finance.yahoo.com/q/pr?s="AAPL,"span",1,">Full Time Employees",,,,1)



output shows me: Business Summary


While:


=smfGetTagContent("http://finance.yahoo.com/q/pr?s="AAPL,"span",0,">Full Time Employees",,,,1)



output shows me: Full Time Employees: 116,000Business Summary


How will I be able to remove the Business Summary from the output? I think I'm missing something on the parameters to use.


Thanks,

Array Entered smfPricesByDates


If one uses the function smfPricesByDates in an array entered formula, the Ticker is also hard coded, is it not, even if the ticker is outside the range? Changing the Ticker (in A2 according to the Examples on page 34 of the documentation) then has no effect on the array entered formula.


In Excel (2007), is it possible to have the array formula independent of the cell holding the Ticker?


After all, the array formula itself is little more than dates, and I would like to change the Ticker and have the array formula report updated data for the new Ticker with the same dates already established.

If you refer to a cell containing the ticker symbol, the formula results
should change if you change the cell value. Give me an example of your
formula. Do you have manual calculation turned on in EXCEL?

There are several templates on the web site:

http://ogres-crypt.com/SMF/Templates/#smfPricesByDates()

I don't know what you mean by "page 34" of the documentation. There are no
"pages" to the documentation.

I have NO idea what you mean by "Ticker is hard coded ... outside the
range". If you're using a reference to a cell, it's not hard-coded. If
something referred to was inside the range, you'd get a circular reference
error.

Randy,

I have a simple XLSX file, 12KB in size, that I twice tried to upload without success. It demonstrates the issues I am having.


> Do you have manual calculation turned on in EXCEL?


Yes, and I use SHIFT+F9 to perform recalculations.

The documentation set I have printed as reference clearly has page numbers in the bottom right corner. There are a total of 57 pages. It's your documentation. I didn't do anything to enhance it. The set is not dated, but the last date in the Change Log is "2007/01/20 Release 1.3h."

Once the array formula was established in Row 4 of my test case, based on the Ticker in A4, changing A4 had no effect on any subsequent recalculation. The array formula was forever tied to the original Ticker in A4. I would call that "hard coded," or if you prefer, embedded. A4 is outside the cell range of the array formula.


FWIW, the version of SMF I am using is:
Stock Market Functions add-in, Version 2.1.2014.01.30 (K:\Documents\ExcelWork\SMF Add-In; ; 1)

​Save it as a normal XLS file. You can just attach it to an email.​

​Since that's a limited recalculation, there could be issues
​. I never use it myself. I always do full recalculation.​

​That's not something I created. I only create an HTML document for each
function.​

​My goal is "paperless".​

​As far as I know, Shift+F9 should do the trick, but I can't be sure.

Try a full recalculation using the smfForceRecalculation function and see
if things update. That might tell you whether it's due to your method of
calculation.​

BTW, Shift+F9 will NOT refresh any web page retrievals, for web pages
you're extracting data from. It will just recalculate the formula with the
previously retrieved web page.

​So old I have no idea what might be an issue. :)​

Randy,

How do I send an e-mail to you attaching the XLS file?


I updated to the 2016-09-02 smf release and tried all F9 combinations including F9 alone. Results remain the same as previously reported.

Google is your friend. Search for "how do I attach a file in google mail".

Did you try either of the templates I pointed you to? Trying those would
indicate if your method of calculation is the problem.

Randy,

Perfectly understandable. Google I think takes innovation too far.

Hi Randy,


Thank you for the marvelous work you've done. I have been learning a lot and I need to learn a lot more.


Been working out to get data on MSN (http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/stockdetails/analysis/fi-126.1.PANW) Growth section using the smfGetTagContent, however, I am stuck on this issue:


I have here a sample :


=smfGetTagContent("http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/stockdetails/analysis/fi-126.1.PANW,"p",1,"Sales (Revenue)","Q/Q (Last Year)")



result shows the correct output. "34.00"


Then comes the problem where I am stuck:


=smfGetTagContent("http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/stockdetails/analysis/fi-126.1.PANW,"p",1,"Net Income","Q/Q (Last Year)")



result shows the same output for the first sample "34.00" where it should have been "-"


It seems that it looks at the "Q/Q (Last Year)" to get the data. Would you be able to specify the tags so that it would show the correct result.


Thanks,

Your problem is that "Net Income" is not a good first search term. It is in
the source code of the web page several times before that table. So it
finds that first occurrence, then the first Q/Q after that, which is what
you found with the first function.

Try something like:

=smfGetTagContent("
http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/stockdetails/analysis/fi-126.1.PANW","p",1,">Growth
Rate (%)","Sales (Revenue)","Q/Q (Last Year)")

=smfGetTagContent("
http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/stockdetails/analysis/fi-126.1.PANW","p",1,">Growth
Rate (%)","Net Income","Q/Q (Last Year)")

The first search term of ">Growth Rate (%)" positions you at the top of the
table before looking for the next search term.

Yes, Thanks.

I tried adding Growth but is seems I was missing something, and that is Growth Rate.


Thanks a lot.
