When I use Data->Import External Data ->New Web Query I can select a block containing the text that I want (a price), but a lot of other stuff is often imported also. While I may recieve all of the following data:

Code:
+--------+---------+
| Color: |BLACK    |
+--------+---------+
| Stock: |Available|
+--------+---------+
| Price: |$439.00  |
+--------+---------+

the only thing i want is the price $439.00. I want to insert that price (and nothing else) into specific cells in an existing spreadsheet that calculates price comparisons. Is there a way to parse out the cell containing $439.00 from everything that I get from the Web Query?

Whats the difference between CONCAT and CONCATENATE?
The newer CONCAT function can reference a range of cells. =CONCATENATE(A1,A2,A3,A4,A5) becomes =CONCAT(A1:A5)
