I was updating one of my investment Excel Spreadsheets. I needed to add a refreshable stock quote, so I went to the research pane, typed in my symbol and it tells me that it’s not available. Upon further research, it turns out that the add-in has expired and Microsoft is no longer going to support the add-in.
What the hell?!?
This feature, which you can read about here, was one of the most useful features of Excel. I found a thread on one of Microsoft forums about the missing add-in. Someone from Microsoft curtly responded:
“The link has been removed as the addin has expired, There will be no more uploads for this addin on Microsoft.com”
I hope Microsoft reconsiders this because it was one of the most helpful tools of their program.
