Impossible to import Yahoo! data within Excel

  1. Hello all,

    Using Excel's web query I import Yahoo! data on a daily basis. Since today it seems impossible, both manually as automatically(VBA), to fetch any data. Here's a sample query:

    Things I tried:

    -Checking the URL via a tracert-command. Works fine.
    -Entering the URL in my browser. Works fine, the .csv file will be downloaded.
    -Tried a standard web query included in the Excel installation ('MSN MoneyCentral Investor Stock Quotes.iqy'), works fine.
    -Reinstalled MS Excel (v2003), problem not solved.

    Has anyone the same problem. Can someone try to fire attached web query within Excel?

    Thanks for any help,
