Does Google Docs have an export function? If so, you could export the data to a comma delimited text file (CSV) and then import that into NeoBook using FileRead or NeoBookDBPro.

You can use NeoBook's InternetGet action to retrieve information from a website. The commands are different depending on the website and what you want to do. I have no idea if Google Docs provides an interface to export data. You would have to check their documentation to find out.

Getting stock quotes from Yahoo is relatively easy to do with the InternetGet action. For example:

Code: Select all
InternetGet "http://download.finance.yahoo.com/d/quotes.csv?s=YHOO+GOOG+MSFT&f=sl1d1t1c1hgvbap2" "[Quote]" ""
AlertBox "Results" "[Quote]"
