  • Ask Price
  • Ask Size

A great use of having this information directly in excel is that you can easily do all sort of analysis on your stocks. For example, you can setup an excel in which you can record your stock transactions. In that, you can also use this plugin to show the latest price of stocks, and % profit or loss. This would let you easily track at any point of time that how are your transactions doing.

    It seems to be nice but the download link does not work : /
    Where can I find it ?

  • Sanford

    Doesn’t work. I really need this program. None of the links found here or on general search work.

    Did MS or MSN do away with this?

  • John F.

    According to Google cache, the MS page was there as recently as Feb 1, 2010. Gone now.

    MS has a similar-looking Office add-in called “Stock Actions for the Research Task Pane” here:

      @John: Thanks for this information. This one works with Office 2003 only. Anything similar for other versions of Office?

    The MSN MoneyCentral Excel Add-in works in Excel 2007.

    Microsoft appears to have removed the link to the download page from the web.

    Having lost my Excel installation and searching for almost a month for the download, I was finally able to locate the file on the following web page:

    look for the following file: msnsq.exe

    After downloading, I was successful in installing and running in Excel 2007,

    Good luck!

    As of 11/3/10 the file msnsq.exe appears to have been removed from this site.


    Has anyone else found any other site for an Excel add-in for stock prices that works with Excel 2010?

  • Mark

    Tor, it’s on the site that Jack lists, just not in alphabetical order.

  • Mouffi

    In Excel 2003, this is not working when Chrome is set as default browser !
    When IE is set back as default browser, it is working again.

    Does someone have solved its use with Chrome ?

    Does anyone know how to get a quote for VIX options using MSNquote? I use it for all options, but this one does not work. Not with symbol VIX, VIX.X, $VIX, etc. Perhaps MSN does not provide VIX quotes. Is that true?

  • Timothy Bishop

    Sure wish I could actually see these discussions with full solution descriptions?!?
