: mark, when using yahoo historical to download prices for several years i have to enter beginning and ending dates over and over, since yahoo doesn't allow more than 200 days at a time. i tried dreyfus historical but it is erratic and has given flakey data, so i don't trust it. are there other options for downloading several years of historical prices for a single stock.

Hi Jeffrey,
Yahoo and Dreyfus are the only historical servers for US stocks. There
may be other places on the net where you can download historical prices and
then import them using FM's generic import option. This is probably more
work than typing in Yahoo dates a several times though... One place I know
of that you can download historical quotes is from AOL, if you are a member.
Please search the online help for "historical prices" for instructions on
using that source.
