: Hi Mark,

: yes I understand I can have a quote server per portofolio and thus use more quote servers, however as far as I see you can only have one portofolio open at the time and since I let it retrieve all de stack data scheduled it only retrieves it for the open portofolio. It could be I'm missing something somewhere, but I have only one portofolio with several stocks and like to monitor these all at the same time. What I meant was it would have been easier if you can define per stock which quote server should be used. (might be an hint:))

: Thanks

Dear Erald

I have already asked this last week and have since found an easy way around this.
Set up several portfolios for each packet of shares. ( I use a different portfolio for all the shares listed on a different exchange.)
For each portfolio choose the most appropriate server.
Open all the portfolios by minimising them after opening, open Fundmanager again and then "open portfolio" in file to open each different one in turn.
When they are all open switch between them, ask each one to upload before connecting to the internet when they will all upload simultaneously.
I find that this is much faster then when I had them all in one portfolio.
The other advantage is that if one of the servers is not responding at least all the other shares will be updated. At the moment I have the problem that shares listed on the Amsterdam exchange can not be updated in Fundmanager until Mark has included stockpoint but at least all the shares listed in Frankfurt London and New York are up to date as I use different servers than European Investor which is not working at all.
By the way Mark, I look forward to having Stockpoint working soon.

With kind regards
Hans ten Wolde
