How to download an xlsx file from a URL

Has anyone ever managed to dowload an excel spreadsheet from a URL or even better achieved this with a parameter for the URL?


I have a need to download a file daily that changes its name each day and the file has a url on a web site - easy enough in my browser to click and download, rename and use workbench but that requires me to manually intervene.

  • Not 100% sure if this is achievable by Workbench natively, an option in the back pocket could be to have an automated script to visit the URL and download the file into a directory which then Workbench can consume
