Thanks for the prompt reply.  Sorry, I thought you were an API pro!  Not sure how I found your name now.  I've just spent a frustrating hour poking around the API site looking for a contact, but no luck!Perhaps someone will come to my rescue.  I'm sure I'm not the first to ask this question!

Is it possible to use ImportXML in google docs to keep my market prices current? If so, example?

Answer
Let me clarify what I I'm trying to do.  I have calculation in a google spreadsheet that uses the Zillow market estimate of a home.  Currently, I manually go grab that number from Zillow and enter it in to the cell.  I'd like to automate that process.  Google spreadsheets has a function called importXML(URL, xPath) which will retrieve 1 or more values from an XLM file.So bottom line, all I want is a URL that will retrieve the homes value.Make sense?
