: Hi Mark,

: At times when downloading daily prices from the ASX for around 70 stocks I frequently get timed out waiting for a reply. Downloading resumes after clicking OK and again gets timed out waiting for the second lot of prices. I eventually get through the 70 shares but in about six or seven stages.

Hi Len,
You might want to try your retrieve at a different time of day, the server
may be too busy when you're accessing it. You can automate the retrieve to
run automatically using command line options also. Another option is to
try out the "Yahoo - ASX & NZ" server, that may be faster/more reliable.
