Or one that doesn't have a history that you can get at with a couple of mouse clicks? In that case, you might have to build your own history of the indicator, so that you can get – on a going forward basis at least – data on maxes, mins, a measure of central tendency such as the mean, median or mode, and so on With that sort of information, you're in a position to interpret the meaning of, say, the number 873; without that information, you can't tell if 873 is good, bad, or a typographical error Here are a few examples of the sort of information that you or your client might want to pick up automatically on a regular and frequent basis: • Company credit cards when a bunch of people have them.This is a good way to keep a running tally of charges by user • Bank accounts, to keep track of posted payments • Electronic invoices Quite a few firms, particularly general contractors, receive electronic invoices from their subs and post them to an intranet in XML • Online stock and price levels maintained by suppliers (especially useful for drop shipping) I've written several books about Excel A while back, some knuckle-dragger posted a negative review about one of my books on Amazon He complained that the book didn't have an accompanying disk with Excel workbooks on it, workbooks that would contain the data on which the book’s examples were based And he was right The book did not have a CD bound into it What he didn't say, because he apparently didn't know, was that few if any such books have had "companion CDs" for years now It's too expensive to supply them when the cost of downloading the workbooks from the publisher's Web site is almost no cost at all And that's how you get the files for that book as well as thousands of others Appendix A • From the Web to Excel So this guy gets to badmouth the book, in a narrow sense accurately, but wildly off base on any rational interpretation Although I was thoroughly p.o.'d, there wasn't anything I could Amazon wouldn't take the review down, and they were right not to Nevertheless, I wanted to know what effect that review would have on sales of my book on Amazon It happens that Amazon posts information, updated hourly, on a book's Amazon sales ranking; the lower the number, the better the sales I watched that number each day for a couple of weeks, like scratching a mosquito bite Then I realized that I was acting like a nincompoop I found that I needed to check the sales ranking hourly Those rankings can and change by tens of thousands of ranks in a 24 hour period If I looked at the ranking once daily, I could very easily get a wildly discrepant value for that day But it would be crazy to try to make sense of hourly data, so I'd have to summarize the rankings somehow – a daily or weekly summary would make good sense So, I wrote a VBA macro to pick up the data from the Web site on an hourly basis Once the data is retrieved into an Excel workbook, the macro adds the ranking to a list, along with the date, and then updates a pivot table based on that list A chart then redraws itself based on the most recent data I never have to touch it – I just look at the chart from time to time The whole process is automatic, untouched by human hands Eventually, I determined that the sales of the book had fallen off after that review Now I'm going to show you how to the same sort of thing with any Webbased data source you like In return, I'd really appreciate it if you'd post a review of this book on Amazon, declaring how wonderful it is that there's no CD bound into it Establishing a Connection The first item on the agenda is to establish a connection between an Excel workbook and the Web site that you want to get data from Depending on the version of Excel you're using, the instructions might differ slightly – for example, "Get External Data" versus "Import External Data" – but you should be able to work your way through it Start with a blank worksheet, and choose Data Web Query The dialog box in Figure A-1 appears Get External Data New 261 262 Excel for Accountants Figure A-1: The appearance of this dialog box differs according to the version of Excel you're using Unless you know the Web site's address off the top of your head, click the Browse button instead of typing in the site's URL When you click Browse, your default Web browser (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox) opens Use it to navigate to the site that you want to get data from Once you've arrived there, either of the following: • If you're using Internet Explorer as your default browser, Excel will automatically put the site's address into the New Web Query window for you when you switch back to Excel • If some other application such as Firefox is your default browser, Excel might not be so user friendly In that case, just copy the URL from the browser's address box and paste it into the New Web Query window's edit box (As noted in Chapter 5, Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V are handy for this.) When the New Web Query edit box has an address in it, the OK button is enabled and you can proceed if you want Before you do, though, consider setting these options: Appendix A • From the Web to Excel • In part two on the New Web Query window, choose to retrieve the entire page • In part three, choose None to indicate that the data should be retrieved as plain text The reason for the first choice, the entire page, is that if you choose only tables, or a particular table or tables, you can run into problems at a later date when the tables might have been replaced or renamed or re-tagged Then, Excel will have trouble finding the specified table or tables And you have no need for the Web site's formatting You're interested only in the data, and you really don't care to have 98.6 enter your workbook as 98.6 NOTE: In Excel 2002 and Excel 2003, you're given the opportunity to click arrows on yellow backgrounds, which mark the upper left corner of each table in the Web page You can select the entire page by clicking the arrow in the page’s upper left corner When you click OK, Excel pulls the data from the Web page and onto the active worksheet Control returns to you when the import has finished The worksheet is also provided a new range name, by default the last portion of the URL The number of columns and rows used in your worksheet depends on the number of elements in the Web page A commercial site could easily take up 400 rows and 30 columns The named range is "live" – that is, you could click any cell in that range and choose Data Refresh Data Excel would then import the current information on that Web page into the worksheet The approach I outline here makes use of that Finding the Data With the current data from the Web page captured on a worksheet, you would then want to isolate and save the information you're interested in In the case of my book's sales ranking, the information looks like this, in one of the worksheet's cells (by no means always the same cell): Amazon.com Sales Rank: #24,183 in Books (See Top Sellers in Books) 263 264 Excel for Accountants (Not bad for a book published in 1995.) While I can depend on finding the text string "Sales Rank: " and for it to be followed by the book's sales rank, I can't depend on that information being in the same worksheet cell time after time And I can't depend on finding the string "24,183" time after time – if I could, there'd be no point in updating the information The sequence of events is: Decide on something unique but constant to search the Excel worksheet for In this example, "Sales Rank: " is a good choice Search the worksheet for the cell that contains that unique item – again, in this case, "Sales Rank: " Strip the contents of that cell until only the useful data remains Write the data to a list on another worksheet, along with an identifier such as the system date Update a pivot table's cache from the list All this can be automated by using a macro You can even set things up so that after the macro has finished running, it will wait a period of time – an hour, say – and then run itself again Understanding the Macro You can download the following macro code from cpa911publishing.com/downloads.htm, but it helps to understand what it does I've put some explanatory notes in with the code The first two statements set options The Option Explicit statement is just good programming practice It forces the code to explicitly declare, or dimension, the variables used in the code It is a major help in the prevention of spaghetti code – code that is unintelligible – as well as outright errors The Option Base statement isn't strictly necessary here It forces all VBA arrays to begin with element number 1, instead of the default element number I have Excel set up to slug both those statements into every VBA module I open Option Explicit Option Base Appendix A • From the Web to Excel Then, the first of two subroutines is initiated, and five variables that the code uses are declared The SalesRank variable is declared as Long, which is an integer variable type with a much higher upper bound than the Integer data type, which maxes out at 32,767 A sales rank, sadly, can be much larger than 32,767 Sub PickUpData() Dim Sales As String, SalesRank As Long, WhichRow As Integer Dim StartPoint As Integer, StopPoint As Integer The code assumes the presence of a worksheet named QuerySheet in the active workbook This worksheet contains the results of the Web query in what VBA refers to as a QueryTable The next statement causes Excel to refresh the results of the Web query The setting for BackgroundQuery means that the code will not continue running until the query has finished executing ThisWorkbook.Sheets("QuerySheet").QueryTables(1).Refresh BackgroundQuery:=False The next statement finds a cell that contains the string "Sales Rank: " and assigns its contents to a variable named Sales The statement makes use of the (only) range name in QuerySheet, which identifies the range of data extracted from the Web site That is the range that Excel searches for the "Sales Rank: " string Sales = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("QuerySheet").Names(1).RefersToRange.Find("Sales Rank: ", LookIn:=xlValues) As noted before, I expect the cell found by the code to look like this: Amazon.com Sales Rank: #24,183 in Books (See Top Sellers in Books) with the only difference from query to query being the rank itself The next two statements locate the first character in the sales rank (here, the number 2) and the last character (here, the number 3) StartPoint = InStr(Sales, "#") + StopPoint = InStr(Sales, " in") – Then, the code finds the string in the middle (using the Mid function) of the Sales variable that begins with the rank's first character, and is as long as the inclusive difference between the positions of the rank's first and last characters SalesRank = Mid(Sales, StartPoint, StopPoint - StartPoint + 1) 265 266 Excel for Accountants The code now makes use of a With block Everything between the With and the End With statements is assumed to belong to the item named by the With statement Here, the worksheet named "Book Rank" is named in the With, and when the code encounters something preceded only by a dot (such as Cells) it is taken to belong to the Book Rank worksheet With ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Book Rank") Inside the With block, the code finds the final cell in column A that has a value in it It does so by the combination of End and xlUp This is the VBA equivalent of selecting, in this case, cell A65000, holding down Ctrl and pressing the up arrow Then, the number is added to that cell's row, to return the row number of the first unused cell in column A WhichRow = Cells(65000, 1).End(xlUp).Row + The book's sales rank is written to column B in the first unused row, and the date and time (by means of the Now function) are written to column A in the same row The pivot table on the Book Rank worksheet is refreshed See the section called Using Named Ranges as Data Sources in Chapter for information on linking a pivot table to a list .Cells(WhichRow, 2) = SalesRank Cells(WhichRow, 1) = Now PivotTables(1).RefreshTable The code ends the With block and saves the workbook End With ThisWorkbook.Save Then, the code calls a subroutine named DoItAgain (discussed next), and the subroutine named PickUpData terminates DoItAgain End Sub The subroutine named DoItAgain has one statement only, and it uses the OnTime method This method specifies a particular time of day It then names a subroutine that is to run at that time of day In this case, the Now function is used to determine the current time One hour is added to that time, and the subroutine just Appendix A • From the Web to Excel discussed, PickUpData, is named The result is that one hour from the time that DoItAgain is run, PickUpData is run once again This means that if you want, you can just leave Excel running the code for days on end, updating the information retrieved from a Web site once an hour, saving the data in the workbook, and updating a pivot table (and a chart) at the same time Here's DoItAgain: Sub DoItAgain() Application.OnTime Now + TimeValue("01:00:00"), "PickUpData" End Sub Figure A-2 shows what the worksheet named Book Rank might look like Figure A-2: The chart updates automatically when the pivot table is refreshed 267 This page intentionally left blank Index A absolute references, 88, 139–140 accelerated depreciation functions
