Case Study Tracking the National Debt

Figure 14.7 shows a worksheet. Cell A2 contains a Web query to return the national debt from http://briiiig.com/debt_ciock/.Cell B2 contains the function =NOW().

I thought it would be interesting to demonstrate to my Junior Achievement students how the national debt changes over time. Starting in Row 5, I added headings for my desired table.

Figure 14.7

Cell A2 contains a Web query and B2 contains current date and time. The goal is to periodically capture the results in the table starting in Row 5 every 15 seconds.
