Hi,

Am trying to use the <insert external data> facility to import data from Yahoo Finance.

Have read lots of forum posts and the "web scraping" tutorials on OpenOfficeTips.com.

Following these, I have used the <insert external data>, pasted the URL into the address box, in this case http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=JAVA, and pressed <return>.

After a few moments, I got the following error:

Error reading data from the Internet.
Server error message: Could not parse response status line.

The URL works fine in my browser. The internet connection to OO is working, I successfully used the "Check for Updates.." facility within OO Calc. Hyperlinks in OO Calc also work fine.

Anyone else had this error?

Any suggestions gratefully received.

Geoff

Thanks for the info.

Unfortunately, I am using WinXP.
