Hi Guys,

I need help. I want to use Web Query in my Excel Sheet to show the Gross Sales of the movies that I am looking for.
Information about the movies are in columns A and B.
Column A contains the title, column B has the year when the movie was released.
Column C to E will displayed the Gross Sales of these movies based on the websites: the-numbers, boxofficemojo and imdb respectively.

How it should display the Gross Sales should be dynamic. Meaning, as the movie information in columns A and B changes, it should show the correct Gross Sales as taken from their respective websites.
I already made a search for similar topics in this forum, but they seem to be outdated already and thus don't apply.

Thanks in advance.
