: Hi Mark,

: A request for future version of FM: I receive price updates from an external party which I receive daily as e-mail attachments. I have automated my email to save the attachments in the appropriate directories on my PC upon receipt. I also have automated the update of FM using these files (I have a number of portfolios that need to be updated).

: The FM update is done using scripting tool, but requires that FM be "opened", then select Generic Import, fill out the dialog box, etc. etc. and repeated for each portfolio. I would like to be able to use a command line switch that enables me to update FM with a generic import file for a given portfolio without having to open FM.

: Cheers,
: Danny

Hi Danny,
Thanks for the feedback, that would be a nice addition. I know you didn't
ask about this, but just wanted to make you aware of the command line
options available for updating if you're using the internet retrieve option.
You can use command line arguments to have FM automatically update prices
and then quit. See "Command Line Arguments" in the online help for more
details. Just another option for you to consider with the current FM.
