GuruFocus is proud to announce the launch of a new Excel add-on for Google Sheets, giving users a new way to retrieve historical financial data.


To install the Google Sheets add-on, first open the Google Workspace Marketplace and then search for “GuruFocus Tools” in the “Search applications” field.

You can also download the add-on directly from GuruFocus’ website by clicking on the “Google Sheets Add-on” underneath the Tools menu, as Figure 1 illustrates.

Click on the Install button to install the add-on. You will then receive a pop-up saying that the add-on was successfully downloaded.

Please note: If you receive an error message in which you cannot download our add-on (as Figure 4 illustrates), it may be because you are not logged in to a Google account, or because you are logged into too many Google accounts. To resolve this issue, try logging out of all Google accounts, then log in to your preferred Google account and try installing the add-on again.

Once you install GuruFocus Tools, you can then open Google Sheets and activate the add-on. You will find GuruFocus Tools underneath the “Extensions” tab, as Figure 5 illustrates.
