Any holdings supported by the IEX exchange are supported by this add-in, including US stocks and ETFs.
The user base is growing (around 40,000 monthly user sessions as of May 2017), but I still only get 20 to 30 requests/bugs/feedback messages per week, so each time you contact me it helps me improve the add-in.
Or download this template Excel file that already has the add-in set up with some sample stocks.
The add-in works in Microsoft Excel 2013, Excel 2016 for Mac and PC, Excel Online, and Excel for i Pad.
The Stock Connector add-in lets you link stocks to cells in the spreadsheet and updates them in real time.
You can get the add-in free from the Excel Stock Connector Office Store page.
In Stock Connector, enter both currency codes together, separated by a slash (/) symbol.
The second symbol should be the base currency - the one you want to use to express the value of the first symbol.
This action will not affect the data in the cells (including tickers, prices, and other info).Since the Stock Connector add-in only lets you insert each quote in one place, you can use the power of Excel to show it in more places. If you want to get fancy, you could even create a separate sheet specifically to hold connected stocks, and use a forumla like VLOOKUP to automatically get quotes for any stock on the main sheets.Let's say you want a price to appear in cell A1 and B1. If you manage a lot of stocks in the same spreadsheet, you might forget which cell you've connected for a particular stock.In Stock Connector, enter these two currency codes together, separated by a slash (/) symbol.For example: Often you'll want a quote to appear in multiple places on a spreadsheet. Now both cells will be updated automatically as the price changes.Then click Refresh whenever you want to update manually.The number of securities per workbook was not limited with Yahoo's data source (now discontinued).You can change the update frequency by clicking the two small arrows to increase or decrease the amount of time between updates.The minimum interval for automatic refreshing is 5 seconds in Excel 2013 and Excel for i Pad, 30 seconds in Excel Online.In rare cases you might find that Stock Connector seems to be "corrupted".For example, it might prevent you from adding valid stocks or loading any prices for your existing stocks.
