In a former blog post (see here) I described how to read an Excel file into Julia. In this post I will focus on how to import an Excel file directly from the Web. This feature might be especially useful for recurring routines that rely on the most up-to-date data. Continue reading How to Read an Excel File dircetly form the Web in Julia Language?
