QUESTION: Dear Gulshan,

I want to retreive the data for all the currencies for every 5 mins time interval and save all the data date wise.

Best regards,
Siraj Multani

Answer
Hi Siraj,

I tried searching through the page content. The problem is that I'm unable to identify the individual table objects on the page. This is necessary to point the excel to the right table and save the data correctly every time.

The core requirement in this question seems to be on retrieving data from a website rather than saving it in Excel. Can you try posting this question on the internet browser related forums on the AllExperts website.

Thanks,
Gulshan.
