Automatically Insert Daily Forex Data in Excel


New Member
May 30, 2014
Hi everyone,

I'm in the process of building a huge forex database in excel for my own analysis purposes. I have collected the past 30 years forex data for top four currency pairs! I would also like to keep the database up-to-date with daily forex information such as, opening, closing, high, low rates. Currently, I have been doing all this work manually without utilizing the data connection feature in excel. I'm wondering if there is any way for me to keep the excel database up-to-date with daily quotes? I organize the data in the following fashion:

Column A: Dates
Column B: Open
Column C: High
Column D: Low
Column E: Close

If you know any particular destination where I could get the required information, it will be highly appreciated. Currently, I am using for manual data entry purpose. I tried a lot to make a data connection between my excel workbook and data table, but couldn't succeed in my attempts. The only problem I face is that excel is unable to identify the currency table (it does not show the yellow arrow to highlight the table for linking purposes). Any help here would be highly appreciated!

Let me know if you require any further information to reply to my question.

Thanks in advance for your help.
