: Since upgrading to 5.1 - several quote servers don't work including Yahoo Adjusted Historical CBS Marketwatch and others. It also seems that at least two of my stocks no longer update ex: afs and a Vanguard fund.......What's going on? There was no problem with 4.7

Hi Don,
The CBS server is not working. This is the only one that we're aware of
that isn't working now. You can always obtain the status under "Help/
Fund Manager on the Web/Check for Updates...".

I just did a test retrieve from Yahoo Adjusted Historical, and it is
working currently. I looked up the symbol 'afs' on Yahoo, and it doesn't
seem to be a valid symbol? What Vanguard fund symbol are you not able to
update, and on what server?

There really should be no difference in the retrieve capability between
4.7 and 5.1. For instance, the currently broken CBS server is broken for
both 4.7 and 5.1. Both the 4.x and 5.x versions use the same retrieve module.
Versions 5.x have more servers enabled in this module, but for the ones
in common they work identically.
