How do I find data on Nasdaq Data Link from within Excel?
Note that each data feed on Nasdaq Data Link is delivered through one of the following Nasdaq Data Link APIs:
- Streaming API for real-time data
- REST API for real-time or delayed data
- REST API for time-series
- REST API for tables
You can learn more about these APIs and data formats here.
The Excel Add-In may only be used with data delivered through the REST API for time-series or the REST API for tables, therefore if you search for data within Excel, you will only see data in time-series or tables format. We recommend using our Search page if you wish to see data in other formats or frequencies eg. real-time.
To search for data within Excel, you must first download and install the Nasdaq Data Link Excel Add-In as per the instructions here.
Once the Excel Add-In is installed, open Excel, go to the Nasdaq Data Link tab and click on the "Get Data" button to launch the Nasdaq Data Link Formula Builder browser window. You can explore our free and premium data feeds through this window.
Here is a video providing a quick introduction to the Excel Add-In:
