Don't think I had this problem before the latest edition of FundManager (professional).
When I update prices from Yahoo in the am before market opens (to make sure I have the previous day's closing numbers and not some mid-day numbers) it updates the previous day's closing price (as it did previously) but it also overwrites the previous day's volume, open, high & low numbers with zeros. I then have to wait for the market to open and then do a "Yahoo historical" download for the previous day to get the numbers back.
Probably it is caused by Yahoo clearing their numbers in preparation for the next day but is there some way to handle this in the software?
