: : : : : Hi Mark
: : : : : I have been using 4.7.228 (now 232). I always downloaded the Fundlibrary data daily and imported it to the FM. As of Sept. 11, the program refused to accept the data, saying that the format did not match the file date (or something like that).
: : : : : I have made no changes, and I don't think Fundlibrary did either.
: : : : : Do you have any idea why this procedure no longer works ?????
: : : : : Don
: : : : Hi Don,
: : : : If I recall correctly, this file format is tab delimited. Is it still
: : : : tab delimited, or are they spaces now? If you can send us the file you're
: : : : trying to import as an e-mail attachment, along with the format string you're
: : : : using, we can take a closer look.
: : : : Thanks,
: : : : Mark

: : : Hi Mark
: : : It appears that the Fund Library has changed or is in the process of changing their 'download' system. I can no longer take the shortcut that I used to use. The download now seems a little more complicated & slower, but it works.
: : : Since they are making changes, you may want to contact them 'suggest' that they could make the system more flexible if they used a different date format. I am sure that any other suggestions would be appreciated. Perhaps they could provide a download directly into Fund Manager, instead of downloading & importing ?????

: : Hi Don,
: : Does Fund Library offer quotes that aren't already available on
: : the "Canada Stockwatch" quote server? This server also has mutual funds.

: Fund Library has only Canadian Mutual Funds.
: I am not sure what Canada Stockwatch has since I don't use it regularly.
I would recommend trying Canada Stockwatch. It is much easier to retrieve
than download/import. This server has Canadian mutual funds. You can visit
their site with your browser to figure out all the ticker symbols to use.
