I am looking for a solution to the following problem:- Link Excel to website called [url removed, login to view] that contains constantly updating price information. The link needs to update as often as possible and at least every 5 seconds. The link must be automatic and work endlessly. The link needs to update the betfair site by activating the refresh button on the website. There may be a simple solution or significant coding may be required. I have tried several shareware type spyder/crawler/extraction programs without success. PROJECT BACKGROUND Betfair is a betting exchange website where gamblers post betting prices that they would like to achieve. I wish to dynamically link data from a specific page on this web site into an Excel spreadsheet where the prices are analysed to see if they are attractive or otherwise. SPECIFICS 1. Build a link between a specified page on the [url removed, login to view] website and Excel. 2. The link should update at least every 5 seconds. 3. The website page is 'Daily DJIA Bets - Daily Up or Down' and is found by clicking on 'All Markets', then 'Financial Bets' then 'Dow Jones' then 'Daily DJIA Bets', then 'Daily Up or Down'. 4. The website only updates every 30 seconds or so unless the 'REFRESH' button is acivated. It is thus a requirement that the solution should activate the Refresh button as often to ensure that the Excel Spreadsheet is receiving data that is not more than 5 seconds old. 5. The link should work endlessly. 6. I am interested in the end result. The languages / software used to create the link from web to Excel is ulimately unimportant. 7. The link should be established without logging on to the website
