Just checked the Yahoo Finance homepage and clicked on Dow which opens
a page where one can click on Components to get a list of the member
stocks.  When clicking instead on S&P500, a similar page appears, but
the choice for Components is grey (not available).

One can go to S&P's homepage and sign up for an account;  the
components can then be downloaded as a spreadsheet.
