GoogleDocs Hack – How to Bring Stock Feeds to GoogleDocs Spreadsheets!

It’s been months since I dumped Microsoft Outlook for GoogleDocs and I have to say, it’s rather nice to have all your important data online, retrievable by any computer with internet access rather than having to carry or send/receive any data.

Getting back to the point of this story is the fact that you can actually feed GoogleDocs spreadsheets stock market data simply using a syntax of code shown here:

Retrieving Current Stock Information

=GoogleFinance("symbol", "attribute")


Pulling Historical Stock Data

=GoogleFinance("symbol", "attribute", "start_date", "end_date", "interval")

Yes, this is yet another example how Google is far superior to Microsoft, especially the fact that you can link up stuff from websites.
