I have been regularly tracking all kinds of options in my fund manager portfolio, for a long time. Firstly, I use pcquote to get prices. Secondly, I define the symbols for my options using pcquote's standard which is basically a prefixed "." to the actual option symbol. Please note that the symbols for options are standardized but the way each site deals with them is different. yahoo, for instance, adds a suffix like ".X" to the actual option symbol. Anyway, to give a recent example, the symbol I have in FM for CSCO Jul'02 22.5 Call is .CYQGX and it works fine. Good luck.
