wherever you wish the data?

       [but I may not be understanding to what you're referring since I
have no clue as what smf is  ;-)  ]

Preamble ...skip if in a hurry
*I've been on the m$ office treadmill for 15 + years
*I've always been scared of Linux and thought it was all command line
*Recently stumbled on Linux and libre office I am  completely new to
libre office
*Used it for a few days ... Truly it's a great piece of software and
dispelled most of my doubts on Linux, using Linux, libre office etc etc

Question / request reading
*However some specific doubts remain on libre office
*I've been using M$ XL's add on for grabbing web data , called smf add in
*When activated, once could easily grab specific pages, specific cells of
web pages directly into xl ( without opening a web browser)
*This is a great time saver
*The only and only /  excellent  group for using smf add in  can be found
*Some  basic write up on using smf add in can be found here

Now, my question is , is there a similar add in for libre office, when
invoked , could help the user  get specific cells ( not the whole web page
from a URL  into libre xl sheets ? Of course the user supplies the URL

Or is there some app in Linux that can do the same ?

How do people grab specific web data ( not entire pages ) but specific data
for web pages into libre calc ?

Request to Moderators ; if I am posting on the wrong area or group please
most this post accordingly

Thanks in advance
