Open Office - Web Queries --anybody know how

I am used to using MS EXCEL. (Still IMO a decent product from "the evil empire". I DO like the web query in EXCEL 2000/XP/2003.

Is there an equivalent feature on Open Office spreadsheet --it might be called differently.

A use for this for example is to import tables from the web directly into spread sheet cells. It's really easy in EXCEL and saves a lot of "cutting and pasting".

Appreciate any help on this one.
