I am looking for a way to import data from a website to be displayed on a PowerPoint slide. I am doing this because the information that I want changes constantly (it is a count of the current number of exoplanets), and I don't want to have to update it each time I run the PowerPoint or the number changes.

I have found a beginning with: http://forums.techguy.org/business-applications/782450-solved-excel-web-query.html#postcount6368907

I also know exactly where to look in the HTML code for the website to get the number(s) that I want.
What I don't know is how to tell vba to look there and pick out the numbers that I want.
Once I have those, I know everything else.

Help, this is the last hurdle that I have to deal with to finish this project, so that I can move on to other projects.


Thanks
