Ver 2024.1 (5118) is not reporting the daily changes to investments. Have downloaded the quote loader from Mike Bray (and it shows getting the closing prices, but the report generator will not show any gain or loss for the investments and no errors were noted by the quote loader.

Just wanted to let you know of this.

    Please note the other quote and exchange loader requires a API key and no instructions on how to obtain it

    1. Are you sure you are clicking select all lines and save selected lines after clicking get all prices?

    2. QER doesn't yet "rework" with Yahoo, and Alphavantage hasn't worked well for a long time.

    Hi Tim

    I agree with dtd. It sounds like you are retrieving prices by clicking GET PRICES but not completing the process to save the prices to Moneydance by clicking SELECT ALL LINES followed by SAVE SELECTED LINES.

    As a new user of Quote Loader its worth taking a look at the How Too PDF and using the links it contains to take a look at the available videos.
    see post 103 at https://infinitekind.tenderapp.com/discussions/investments/7595-quo...
    to get the best out of Quote Loader make sure you are running the latest build of Quote Loader currently build 321008. Sign up to the above discussion to get emails that include update notifications and check for updates under EXTENSION MANAGE EXTENSIONS

    Hope this helps.

    I have been a user of Moneydance for quite some time. I have used MB's quote loader (the new one at that) and have selected get prices, select lines and save lines before running the investment performance report for today or yesterday and nothing is returned.

    Did I get a bum download?

    Hi Tim


    Under EXTENSION – MANAGE EXTENSIONS Remove Quote Loader. Close and open Moneydance. Under EXTENSION – MANAGE EXTENSIONS Install Quote Loader. Close and open Moneydance.

    Open Quite Loader. The build number should be 321008. Take screen shot of Parameter window. Then click on the Security window click GET PRICES and take another Screen Shot. Click SELECT ALL LINES then SAVE SELECTED LINES. Finally double click on any ticker and take a screen shot of the Currency/Security History window that opens.
    Post all three screen shots.

    report in the 2024 moneydance is not working for me.

    Hi Tim

    OK, so you are saying Quote Loader is working and saving new prices to Moneydance, but this is not reflected in the Moneydance investment performance report.

    When you say the investment performance report is not working can you provide more detail. Have you tried clicking the EDIT button then the RESET button and ticking the boxes for the securities you want to include? Also check the AS OF date.

    Hope this helps.

    I discovered the problem. in MD 2022 when you selected today, if would show the range as yesterday and today. in MD 2024, it just shows today. The default dates are the same. Hmm, is there a way to modify the settings so when asking for today's returns, that it would give the start date as yesterday and the end as today?

    Thank you

    I will try that. yes, it defaults to the start date as today when looking
    for today's returns. Is there a way to have it default to the day before?

    In the Investment Report there is now an option for "Yesterday and Today"

    Yes, and they both reference the the same date for start and stop date. A
    bug for sure. If they have the same date they use the same value in the
    report. The start date should be the day before. Please have them correct
    that in the next update.

    For me - for "Investment Transactions" and "Investment Performance", Today shows 5/17/2024 - 5/17/2024 , Yesterday shows 5/16/2024 - 5/16/2024 , Yesterday and Today shows 5/16/2024 - 5/17/2024

    Am I correct that one of the titles I picked is the same as what you are choosing?

    Also, there is an "Increase Date Range Size" - third item to the right of the chosen range, but I don't seem to need it - all working.

    Hmmm - to the far right there may be a number associated with the date range pick. If so, you may have "adjusted" the date range you are seeing.
