: Hi Mark,

: Yahoo is not returning current quotes on F/M updates and their web page is also lacking in this regard. Stocks like Royal Bank (RY.TO), Lucent Technologies (LU), and America Online (AOL) are showing June 5th numbers today (June 7th). I know I can change quote servers, but it's going to be a major (well at least really fiddly) job to change all my ticker symbols in both F/M and Quicken. With Yahoo's move towards more of a pay-as-you-go business model will they be less diligent about keeping their data current? Just thought you might have some info for us??

: BTW, I'm using the latest (#309) retrieve module.

: Cheers,

: Derek

Hi Derek,
I don't have any insight on Yahoo. Hopefully they will get the quote
problems fixed soon. To use another server you shouldn't need to change
any of your symbols, just change the quote server under "Options/Internet
