Many of our customers are looking for Tiingo integration into Excel, and XLQ one solution customers find helpful, and is also data-source agnostic. This means it’s easy to quickly switch to Tiingo if you’re already using the software.
How to Integrate the Tiingo API with XLQ
Step 1: Get your Tiingo API Token

Step 3: Make a query in Excel
With the token now established, you can make a query in Excel using a function such as “xlqhClose”. When using this function, make sure to set the source as “tiingo” which will then query our servers using the API token provided in the above excel.
