Copy Website Tables into Excel 2007 Spreadsheets

I work in a government office.  Our computers are imaged to provide
certain software and none other for office use.  The task described in
the Subject caption above is found within blogs.howtogeek.com/
mysticgeek/ ... and the instructions start with "Open Excel 2007 and
under the Data tab select Get External Data and From Web."

Problem: our image of Excel 2007 doesn't have these selections under
the Data tab.  What we have is

Excel
   Data
      Connections
      Properties
      Edit Links

Presumably there is an alternate way of accomplishing my task.  Can
someone clue me?  Thanks.

The Data tab is separated into 5 groups in Excel 2007...
"Connections" is the second group, while "Get External Data" is the leftmost or first group.
That first group has a "From Web" icon.

Thanks for the tip.  I was reading the drop-down menu, not realizing
that I had a horizontal line to read.  I would havde responded sooner
but I was interupted by a different, time-consuming task.

You are welcome.

I will remove your name from my "nobody is there list".

There are ways to make using the ribbon easier.

Indeed. Minimise it and add all the things you actually use and need to your 
quick bar. :)

I wouldn't mind "the ribbon" quite so much if I could move it to the side of 
my docs, but all that waste space where my words etc could be really annoys 
me (modern screens have extra width but pretty much  the same height). :)

Spreadsheet query #2
I have devised a list of items in a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. Against each item (in a different cell) is an amount which represtents the items value.
