: Mark,
: I have just noticed that the ticker symbols for these indexes on Yahoo UK have changed. I have all stock price download preferences set to two decimal points. Problem now is that these indexes are downloading as e.g. 60.00 instead of 6000.00. I know you helped me before with this one a long time ago but I've forgotten what you told me. Please help again.

Hi Phil,
The instructions are at:

Here they are copied for your reference:

All investments recorded in FM with the symbol suffix of .L will always be updated in pounds. All other investments will be updated by the price, as reported back from the Yahoo - UK server.

If you desire a different behavior, the behavior of this retrieve can be changed from the default by adding a value to the following registry key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Beiley Software\Fund Manager\CurrentVersion\Internet Retr

Set a value for yahoo_uk in this registry key to the string of "X"

The Internet Retr key will probably already exist, so you can just add the yahoo_uk value to this existing key. Registry values can be added with the "regedit" application. The X in the above description should be replaced with an integer number as described here:

X = 0 or not present: default behavior (.L suffixed symbols updated in pounds, all others as specified by server)
X = any integer: All prices are divided by this integer before importing, irregardless of the recorded symbol.
