: I have one foot in Quicken and one in Fund Manager. I updated prices in both. I noticed a discrepancy in value that I traced to FM's price update. Of course Quicken goes not allow any user intervention and I appreciate the options in FM. I attribute the problems somehow to pilot error.

: I was using multiple updates. (Yahoo) Did it Friday night and again Saturday am since I thought that the problem could have been one of source update timing. I ended up with Thursaday close repeated as a Saturday price with Friday matching Quicken. In addition, I had two money markets with price of 5.94 & 6.24 (I wish). I deleted the Saturday prices and sadly edited the MM price.

: Anyway, I seem to have access to all the update source options. What is the easiest? Daily with Yahoo? Lagging with Yahoo Historical? Suggestions please.

Hi John,
In general you would only use the "Yahoo (Historical)" server when creating
a new investment to get past data. Once you have past data you can use
Yahoo on a daily basis. If you prefer, you could also just use Yahoo (Historical)
once a week or so to update for the last week. It sort of depends on how you
want to use the program.
