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 buy online ventolin Capital Survey 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.
