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.
