: : : Since 11/8/00 I've been having difficulties retrieving prices from the ASX.
: : : I downloaded the new version when it became available last week but I still can't get prices for some stocks which used to be OK.
: : : Examples:
: : : SMEHB
: : : CPA
: : : MLB
: : : SSX
: : : SSXPA
: : : SMPG
: : : BWP
: : : Can anyone shed any light on this?
: : : TIA.

: : Hi Roger,
: : Please check to make sure you have version 231 of the DLL under "Help/About...".
: : I just did a test retrieve with "MLB", and it worked properly.
: : If you really do have 231, then can you tell us if it ever works?
: : Does it depend what time of day you try and retrieve?
: : Thanks,
: : Mark

: Hi Mark,
: MLB has never worked for me.
: It follows two unlisted companies in the portfolio. They have no ASX codes.
: Could that have any bearing?
: CPA last worked on 11/8/2000. It does not follow any unlisted stocks.
: Thanks for your interest.
I have discovered a typing error in my version of MLB it was typed ML;B In the font Fund Manager uses it was not apparent. I noticed it in the Investment Properties > Other screen which uses a different font. Sorry about that.
This has had the effect of fixing up most of the errors although I still have problems with the Suncorp Metway stocks which are:
SMEHB and SMPG.
I have tried to get these directly from the ASX and they come up OK.
I have tried setting up a new portfolio with just these stocks in it and it fails.
Both of these used to work until 11/8/00.
