    You need to use RSS or webservices to get the data from the YAHOO and display accordingly in your applicaiton.

    If you are already getting the data from an xml, you can put it in a dataset then loop through the dataset to insert each record to the database.. You're almost there! :)

    Anyone have experience of using Excel web query ? It seems a quick and easy method ?
