    I was asking if there is an excel function that link data from the web to a cell. I re-write the question in a better way. I am not able to write script or using VBA functions

  • Then you should employ someone to do the work or learn yourself.

This is a solution with office 2007 that I would like to share:

  1. select "data" section an then click "from web" step_1
  2. it opens a new web-query where you have to insert the web address of the page with the data you need step_2
  3. if the data you need are included in a table you can import only that table, because tables are highlighted by a green arrow (otherwise you can import all the page) step_3
  4. before choosing the cell where import tha data you can use option tab as you need step_4_option_tab

The screenshot are from my regional version of office
