: Hi Mark,

: I have just started using Fund Manager (great product), so I apologise if this question has already been asked (I did a quick scan/search through the weboard).

: I am tracking the S&P/ASX 50 Leaders index in my portfolio. With yahoo, I checked the symbol and it is ^AFLI (very difficult to find that out!!!).
: However, this symbol is not working (all other stocks are working).

: I have checked the Investment Property and "Internet Retrieve Updates Price" and it is selected.

: I have tried All Ordinaries Index (^AORD) and it doesn't work either. I have tried symbol without "^" and also with ".AX" suffix, but no luck.

: Any ideas??

: Thanks,
: Danny

Hi Danny,
I just checked using my browser and ^AFLI is available on the "Yahoo"
quote server, but not the "Yahoo - Australia & NZ" quote server. I did
a test retrieve from Yahoo, and it retrieved properly. You might want
to try the "Yahoo" server if you're not using that.
