Use Excel to Monitor Bitcoin & Altcoin price
This guide will teach you step by step on how to use excel to get updated Bitcoin & Altcoin price in the easiest way even though you are not an Excel Expert.
You just need to simply follow the below 2 steps:

1. Download Power Query to your Excel
2. Setup Excel and link to

1. Download Power Query to your Excel
Power Query is an amazing data tool for Excel!  It is built by Microsoft to help you import, transform, and automate your data processes.  
Here is a quick list of compatible versions:
  • “Free” add-in for Excel 2010 and 2013 for Windows.
  • Built-in feature for Excel 2016 for Windows. 
Complete Guide to Installing Power Query
This page will help you determine if you have the right version of Excel, and provide installation instructions.

What Version Do I Need?

The download page for Power Query lists which version of Excel are compatible with Power Query.
The following Office versions for Windows are supported:
  • Microsoft Office 2016 – All Versions
  • Microsoft Office 2013 – All Versions
  • Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Plus with Software Assurance
Both 32-bit and 64-bit are supported.  Power Query is not compatible with any Mac versions of Excel yet.
Unfortunately, if you don’t have these versions you will need to upgrade to use Power Query.  To me, Power Query is worth the upgrade to Office 365 alone, and there are a lot of other cool new features too.

How Do I Check My Version of Excel?

Excel 2010

Here’s how to determine your version and 32 or 64 bit in Excel 2010:
  1. Click the File button.
  2. Click the Help option on the left side menu.
  3. The Excel version will be listed under the Product Activated section.
  4. The bit version (32-bit or 64-bit) will be listed under the About Microsoft Excel section.

Excel 2013

Here’s how to determine your version and 32 or 64 bit in Excel 2013:
  1. Click the File button.
  2. Click the Account option on the left side menu.
  3. The Excel version will be listed under the Subscription Product section.
  4. Click the About Excel button.  The bit version (32-bit or 64-bit) will be listed in the first row of the pop-up window.

How to Install Power Query

Excel 2016

Power Query is included with Excel 2016.  It has been renamed and is now on the Data tab of the Ribbon in the Get & Transform section.

This means there is nothing to install.  If you are using Excel 2016, go to the Data tab on the ribbon and press the New Query button to create a query and open the Power Query editor.
It’s important to note that there are some differences in Power Query for different builds of Excel 2016.
If you are on the MSI (Windows Installer) version then you will not get frequent updates to Power Query.  Your ribbon might look different from mine, and you won’t have all the latest features.
If you are on an Office 365 subscription then you have the Click-to-run version and you should get all the latest updates.  
If you are on the ProPlus version of Office 365 then you might be on the Deferred Channel.  The name of the Deferred Channel has been changed to Semi-Annual Channel as of September 2017.  This means you get updates every six months instead of every month.
All the versions and channels make this very confusing, to say the least.  Hopefully this guide helps you figure out how to get Power Query for Excel 2016.
Excel 2010 & 2013
For Excel 2010 and 2013 you will need to download the Power Query add-in and install it.
