Wayne's article, "using-excel-web-queries-to-retrieve-data" tells how to use Excel for these queries.

Thanks for the mention of Apache OpenOffice!

I'm a lifetime AAII member, and coincidentally also a volunteer on the Apache OpenOffice project.

It is worth noting that we also have a large template library of free document templates. Many of the Finance templates could be of interest to AAII members:

Finally, for support questions, we have a community support forum, run by volunteers, here as well:
