How can I import data from an HTML page or from Calc and refresh the data every x seconds?

  • On selecting the menu "Insert > External data", a window appears asking for the URL or filename. The button with the ellipsis allows you to navigate to find your file quickly.
  • When you have chosen your file, the field below the name tables the possible options, select the one you want
  • Click on "Execute every x seconds"
  • The table appears and will be refreshed every x seconds

Note : This method is only possible with HTML pages or Calc
