: Hi Mark,

: Thanks for your advice. How did you test it? By retrieving inside Fund Manager or by looking up the specific stock at Brussels Exchange Site? As I understood, the "code" is the same as the symbol for a stock, e.g. for "Barco New", it's "BAR", which is the "code" in their terminology. And I tried quite a few such "codes", like BAR, GBL, BARN, UCB, etc., none of them worked. Is there some suffix which should be added? At BXS' site there is no need for it naturally. I could not find.

: Regards

Hi Simon,
I tested it by retrieving inside Fund Manager. Here is the text
on how to use this server:

This server updates close, high, low, open, and volume for the date specified by the server. To get started for the first time you must user your browser to look up the Code used by this server. User your browser to visit this server and look up the quote for a symbol you are intered in. The Code can be found from the URL. As an example, if you look up the symbol BAY the URL will show:

which is a Code of 376. You would record 376 as your investment's symbol in order to retrieve from this server.

The "Code" here is a number, not the symbol "Code". For another example,
the BAR you are looking for should have a symbol of "1909" recorded in
