ARGUS Direct for Spreadsheets

The Argus Direct for Spreadsheets platform is a tool that enables subscribers to download Argus prices and other data directly into Excel. It is easy to create spreadsheet templates containing key prices that refresh automatically. Excel functionality can be used in the normal way to create charts, pivot tables and other types of output. The menu provides access to Argus' range of data, and users can specify price types (e.g. daily prices, midpoints, monthly averages), currency, date ranges and other options.

Downloadable data template

The Argus Direct platform add-in for spreadsheets enables customers to download, manipulate and integrate data within Excel. The Argus Direct platform subscribers can download the Excel add-in here. An installation guide and user manual are also available.

Argus has created sample data templates for key products designed to assist subscribers with downloading and using Argus data inside Excel. Once the add-in has been installed, these templates can be downloaded, saved and then refreshed, pulling through the latest data. Subscribers can also amend their spreadsheets to add or include data.

Please note that as multiple options are available with the add-in, such as changing currency or unit, numbers may differ slightly from those published in the corresponding reports.
