Microsoft Excel Web Queries (Screencast)

Today I took some free time and created another screencast, this time covering a really cool feature of Microsoft Excel: Web Queries. Web queries let you import data directly from a web site. This is a great tool for importing table-based data for your own analysis or sorting.

In the example recorded today, I use Excel to fetch the Q2 Venture Capital Survey data from the San Jose Mercury News website. You might be interested in this data if you were looking for a job or selling Aeron chairs.
