Hello Stemians! :)

Today i was looking for a way to import data from coinmarketcap to excel because i need to update information about curencies, i use this for track how valuable are my savings. 

And I found resolving! 

Now you can import this data to your sheets;).

I used Excel 2013, so i think in Excel 2016 this work too. Let me know. 


1. You should download „Microsoft Power Query for Excel”. When you finished, install it. 

You can download from:

2. Run your Excel – now you should have a new tab „Power query” - click it

3. Next click „FROM WEB”. Now should apper window. Copy ticker API ( and paste in new window in Excel. Click "OK"

This api provide all data about every cryptocurrency on coinmarketcap. If you want you can use other api ( to select currency or select another data. On this API is all data you can get from this site. In my opinion the better way is select data inside Excel.

7. Now you see table of many record, but not data. Go click buton „To Table”. In next windows don't change anything. Click "OK"

In this window in properties section you can change table name to whatever you like.

8. Ok, now We want see any data. Click a small icon (with two opposite arrows) next Column1. There you can select columns what you interested. I recomended select all. Click "OK"

10. On This steps you can change columns names. But if you don't want do on now, you can change it later, normally in sheet. When you finish, click "Close & Load"


12. From this time, when you click „Refresh all” buton, the information on this sheet wil be upadted.
