Microsoft Excel is an indispensable spreadsheet software in the home office and at work. Most PC users have already worked with the tool and were able to get to know the basic functions. But did you know that you can even query the current value of stocks in Excel with just a few clicks of the mouse? This article explains how to import current stock prices into Microsoft Excel.

How to get stock quotes in Excel

Please note that the retrieval of the share information only works if there is a connection to the Internet.

Select the cells you have created and create a table under " Insert " and " Table " in order to simplify the export of the data later. Querying the share prices also works without a table.
