  1. Update function work work in Google sheets itself or have to go to linked excell sheet in window

    • Hello, AMIT!
      I’m really sorry to say that the STOCKHISTORY function won’t work in Google Sheet as google sheet has limited functions to perform but the TODAY function will work adequately. You need to work on an Excel sheet.

  4. I AM NOT GETTING STOCK OPTION IN DATA TYPE IN MY EXCEL EVEN AFTER HAVING LATEST VERSION OF EXCEL AND MICROSOFT OFFICE . CAN YOU PLEASE HELP ME WITH THAT ?

    • Dear Raman,
      1. First, make sure you are using MS Office 365 as they are only available in that version.
      2. Secondly, make sure you are logged into your MS Excel account.
      3. Thirdly, make sure to have the English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, or Portuguese editing language added to Office Language Preferences.
      If these do not work then,
      -Go to File > Options > Trust Center > Trust center Settings > External Content > Security settings for “Linked data types” > Activate “Enable all Linked Data Types”
      or
      – Go to Options>Customize Ribbon> All Commands
      – Then, choose the Datatype Command
      -Add the command to a “New Group”
      -Finally, restart your Excel Application.

      *Also, make sure to keep your internet connection ON; as this data type is linked datatype.
      *You should also see if this datatype is available in your geopolitical locaton.

    Is there a way to get the current Mutual Fund NAVs in an excel sheet which will be automatically updated every end of the day ?
    Kindly share a sample excel sheet for Mutual funds.

    Best regards
    Bala

    • Hi BALA Sir
      Thank you for your comment.
      To get the current mutual fund NAVs, you can use the following link:
      https://scripbox.com/mutual-fund/latest-nav
      You can get the latest NAVs using PowerQuery (method 3 in this article).
      You will need to activate the “link to data” option to get the automatic update.
      I think it should work this way. Please let us inform if you face any issues.
      Thank you

  6. Hi Rasel,

    Thank you for the comprehensive explanation.
    I am using Excel in MS Office Professional Plus 2019 to track my stocks. As I understand, I can use only Power Query to link my excel sheet to the Stock Price display. Have found that https://www.screener.in/screens/16162/all-stocks/?sort=name&order=asc is a better option than the NSE or BSE sites since all Indian scripts are displayed there on a single page.
    However in Table 0, only 25 scripts are displayed, and am unable to display all the scripts reuqired even after repeatedly refreshing the Queries and Connections tab. Is there any workaround for this?

      Hello AJK

      Thanks for sharing this exciting issue with us. The mentioned site arranges the required information on many pages. When I went through, there were 69 pages (25 records are displayed on each page). However, the page numbers will change over time. You wanted to use the PowerQuery and fetch all the information into a single sheet.

      I am delighted to inform you that I have developed an Excel VBA Sub-procedure to fulfil your requirements. Thanks to MD. ABDUR RAHIM RASEL. I developed such an Excel VBA Sub-procedure by considering the idea he had given in the previous comment.

      Excel VBA Sub-procedure:

      
      Sub FetchDataFromAllPagesOfAWeb()
      
          Dim pageNumber As Integer
          Dim urlBase As String
          Dim queryName As String
          Dim queryFormula As String
          Dim ws As Worksheet
          Dim startCell As Range
          Dim masterSheet As Worksheet
      
          Application.DisplayAlerts = False
          Application.ScreenUpdating = False
          
          Set masterSheet = ThisWorkbook.Sheets.Add
          masterSheet.Name = "Master Sheet"
          
          Call deleteQueriesAndConnections
      
          urlBase = "https://www.screener.in/screens/16162/all-stocks/?sort=name&order=asc&page="
          pageNumber = 1
      
          Do While pageNumber <= 69
              
              queryName = "Table_" & pageNumber - 1
      
              queryFormula = "let" & Chr(13) & Chr(10) & _
                  "    Source = Web.Page(Web.Contents(""" & urlBase & pageNumber & """))," & Chr(13) & Chr(10) & _
                  "    Data0 = Source{0}[Data]," & Chr(13) & Chr(10) & _
                  "    #""Changed Type"" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(Data0,{{""S.No."", Int64.Type}, {""Name"", type text}, {""CMP Rs."", type number}, {""P/E"", type number}, {""Mar Cap Rs.Cr."", type number}, {""Div Yld %"", type number}, {""NP Qtr Rs.Cr."", type number}, {""Qtr Profit Var %"", type number}, {""Sales Qtr Rs.Cr."", type number}, {""Qtr Sales Var %"", type number}, {""ROCE %"", type number}, {""Debt / Eq"", type number}, {""B.V.

                  "in" & Chr(13) & Chr(10) & _
                  "    #""Changed Type"""
      
              Set ws = ThisWorkbook.Sheets.Add
              ws.Name = "Page_" & pageNumber
      
              ActiveWorkbook.Queries.Add Name:=queryName, Formula:=queryFormula
      
              With ws.ListObjects.Add(SourceType:=0, Source:= _
                  "OLEDB;Provider=Microsoft.Mashup.OleDb.1;Data Source=$Workbook$;Location=""" & queryName & """;Extended Properties=""""" _
                  , Destination:=ws.Cells(2, 1)).QueryTable
                  .CommandType = xlCmdSql
                  .CommandText = Array("SELECT * FROM [" & queryName & "]")

                  .Refresh BackgroundQuery:=False
              End With
      
              ws.UsedRange.Copy Destination:=masterSheet.Cells(masterSheet.Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row + 1, 1)
      
              'ThisWorkbook.Queries(queryName).Delete
      
              pageNumber = pageNumber + 1
          Loop
      
          Dim wsToDelete As Worksheet
          For Each wsToDelete In ThisWorkbook.Sheets
              If wsToDelete.Name <> "Master Sheet" Then
                  wsToDelete.Delete
              End If
          Next wsToDelete
          
          Application.ScreenUpdating = True
          Application.DisplayAlerts = True
          
      End Sub
      
      Sub deleteQueriesAndConnections()
          
          Dim QueriesAndConnections As Object
          
          For Each QueriesAndConnections In ThisWorkbook.Queries
              QueriesAndConnections.Delete
          Next
          
      End Sub
      

      OUTPUT:
      Output of running Excel VBA code

      Things to Remember:

      1. Add a new sheet and delete the Master Sheet before running the Excel VBA Code.

      2. At the end of the code execution, the code will delete all sheets except for the Master Sheet.

      Limitations: The code will take 10 to 15 minutes to fetch data from that site. It will depend on the capacity of your computer and internet connection.

      I am attaching the solution workbook for better understanding. Good luck!
