Import Web Content into Your Excel Workbook

Import Web Content into Your Excel Workbook

Importing Web content into your Excel workbook is simple using Micorosoft’s WinHTTP tools (they are free and included with IE).

First, create and save an Excel Workbook. Next, access the visual basic editor (ALT-F11). Insert a new module and paste the following code:

Public Sub GetPage(Optional prmURL As Variant)    Dim WinHttpReq As WinHttp.WinHttpRequest    Dim txtURL As Variant            If IsMissing(prmURL) Or IsNull(prmURL) Or IsEmpty(prmURL) Then        txtURL = "http://www.devx.com"    Else        txtURL = prmURL    End If            ' Create an instance of the WinHTTPRequest ActiveX object.    Set WinHttpReq = New WinHttpRequest        ' Assemble an HTTP Request.    WinHttpReq.Open "GET", txtURL, False    ' Send the HTTP Request.    WinHttpReq.Send        ' Put status and content type into your workbook Column 1, row 2 and 3    ActiveSheet.Cells(2, 1) = WinHttpReq.Status & " - " & WinHttpReq.StatusText    ActiveSheet.Cells(3, 1) = WinHttpReq.ResponseTextEnd Sub

Lastly, insert a Visual Basic button in your file, and have it call the procedure. For example:

 GetPage "http://www.microsoft.com"
