The MSN stock quote addin for Excel that I have relied on so heavily for several years stopped working a few days ago. Anyone have insight into what happened?

Can someone suggest an alternative?

You could see if my add-in would work for you:

It's free and open-source.

Rharmelink,

I've been using your add-in for more than a year and it is great! What are the chances I could convince you to port your tools to the Mac? Please? Pretty please?

-Dave.

I would say zilch to nil since I don't have a Mac.

The add-in is just something I wrote for my own use, to replace EXCEL web queries. I'm just sharing it.

I have heard of Mac users using it though, but with some type of Windows emulation software.

Yes, that's exactly what I'm doing - running parallels which gives me the ability to emulate Widows 7 in the MacOS environment. It's pretty cool that I can run Windows 7 apps and Mac OS apps side-by-side, but Windows 7 is a memory and CPU hog - even on a mac.

So the answer is that we just need to get you to switch to a Mac, huh?

:-)

-Dave.
