: : : Hi Mark,
: : : I'm still baffled by the problem that I e-mailed you about concerning all the stocks where splits are recorded. It began after updating on 7/20/00. I sent you the files on ABGX and AMGN as examples. Could it be that the dates on which I recorded the splits could be off by a day? What I've used is what Yahoo! reports as the split dates in the company "Profile" or on the "Charts" page. I assumed that to be the ex-dividend date. Isn't that the date on which to record the split in FM? I just can't understand what happened on the 20th. I don't believe that by downloading the retrieve module #229 that that alone would affect the graphs. Did Yahoo! do something on that date? Any further ideas would be appreciated. I've got a total of about 130 stocks which would sure require a lot of updating.
: : : Thanks in advance.

: : Hi Wyatt,
: : I can't tell what went wrong, but I looked at your Abgenix, and your prices from around 12/99 up to your split around 4/00 seemed
: : Thanks,
: Hi Mark,
: I can't tell what date range is involved. It would seem, however, that only stocks with splits recorded are the ones involved. I guess that my only option is to get historical prices for all those involved. Should I first turn off the "Split adjusted" view, delete all splits and then use the "Historical" server. Then when I record the splits again, does it matter whether I have the "Split adjusted" view turned on or off? Thanks again for your indulgence.
