I know little about RSS feeds other than you drag the orange RSS button into your aggregator. I am dealing with a company that offers two ways to retrieve information, a PDF file and a RSS feed. Is there a way to populate cells with the information from an RSS feed? Why a company would choose these two methods is beyond me. I would have prefered to do a simple web query. Thanks for any help you can offer me.

I assume it would allow for constant or regular updates to a spreadsheet. An econometrician, for instance, might use a certain buzzword's frequency over an RSS newsfeed as an independent variable in a certain forecasting model. I could see this being very useful.

I'm interested to see the answer to your question.
