: : : Hi Mark;
: : : Your saying that FM 6 Beta and FM 5.3 can run on the same computer isn't true. I installed FM 6 Beta in the file Fund Manager Beta. I did not install in the FM 5.3 folder. When I ran FM 6 Beta in automatically converted all my FM 5.3 file to the new file format FM 5.3 won't do anything anymore. That isn't a real problem unless there are a lot of bugs in FM 6 Beta. I made a back up yesterday and have all files on another computer that is still running FM 5.3
: : : I was planning to upgrade after the testing was done anyway.

: : : Thank you

: : Hi LD,

: : When you opened FM 6 Beta it will start to open your last opened portfolio
: : if you have the option "Options/Preferences.../Data/Open Last Portfolio At
: : Startup" turned on, which is the default. You should however have been
: : prompted with a dialog box warning you that these investments were created
: : with an older version of FM, and if you convert them, you won't be able
: : to read them in the old FM anymore. Did you see this dialog? There are
: : 4 buttons along the bottom "Yes to All", "Yes", "No", "No to All".

: : Thanks,

: Hi Mark;I saw the buttons, FM did what it was supposed.
: I won't be able to download transactions with out giving yahoo my Merril Lynch online password will I?

Hi Lawrence,

Okay thanks. Yes, you will need to create a Yahoo account, and get a
secure Yahoo ID. You can then link your Yahoo portfolio to any of their
supported brokerages/fund companies. You will need to have an online
account with Merrill, and have to provide the info to Yahoo in order to
link this account to your Yahoo portfolio.

It's not as hard as I just made it sound... :) There are step by step
instructions in the online help.
