: : : hi Mark
: : : I have been having a problem with yahoo hist stock splits not automatically making the adjustment. I dont think it is with the data from yahoo although I sometime see a bad chart on yahoo. Example is LOW which split last year. FM retreeved the spit and placed a marker on the chart but prior data is not adjusted correctly (the adjust for splits flag is On) so the chart still shows the sudden drop in price. This has always worked fine for me (2 yrs) but it seems the problem croped up a few months ago (maybe with a new data fetch ddl).
: : : If there is a bug fix on this let me know. I use NT4.0SP6a.
: : : thanks,Fred C.
: : Hi Fred,

: : the data shows:
: : Date Open High Low Close Volume Adj.Close*
: : It looks like the data is split twice, or a 4:1 split happened. Do you know
: : I've sent an e-mail to Yahoo asking them about this, maybe they have
: : Thanks,
: Mark, thanks for the quick reply. Looking at the data you list it seems to me that the june-29-01 line is hosed, it should looked similar the july-2-01 line.
