Hello,

I have been using the Quotes and Exchange Rates extension for quite a while without issue, but within the last ~3 weeks it has stopped downloading updates. The Test Results state "No history records returned for security...."

It worked before; I haven't made any changes -- any known issues?

    It will take some time for that extension to be functional again. YAHOO changed their quotes site on April 15th breaking that extension. Most of us had switched from that extension to a third-party one by Mike Bray. It too broke on the 15th for Yahoo, but had another sourcing site that one could use. Mike is trying his best to fix the Yahoo source, but patience is needed.

    There are lots of threads on the go with just this subject.

    Hi kvanospam

    Yahoo has changed something.

    Mike the developer of Quote Loader is working on a fix.

    In the meantime change the Source to FT or if you want historical data for funds FT HD.

    If any Securities return an error or wrong currency with FT as the source post a screen shot of the Quote Loader windows after you click GET PRICES.

    I will then try to help.

    For information on the features of this extension and how to use see post 67 at
    https://infinitekind.tenderapp.com/discussions/investments/7595-quo...

    Download the PDF’s attached to post 67 and have a read.

    To get an overview take a look at the YouTube videos by using the links on page 1 and 2 of the PDF.

    The Quick Start Video is intended to give a quick overview so the user can see if Quite loader looks like it could work for them. The Short Video expands the user’s knowledge giving more detail. The Full Video goes even further but may be to wordy for some.

    The PDF reinforces what’s leaned in the videos, provides step by step instructions, a must read and provide answers on how to handle less obvious issues some users may come across.

    Hope this helps.
