I inadvertently removed subject extension from my MD2008 and it no longer appears in the list of available extensions in the program. The new Quotes & Exchange Rate Updater does not work in MD2008. Can I get the subject extension as a file or some other way. I do not plan on upgrading until the next release.

    Hi Joe,
    I've attached the old yahooqt.mxt file
    I'm still using it on MD 2010.
    I copied it from .moneydance/fmodules
    HTH -Kevin N

    Edit: The file evidently downloads as You'll need to rename the file yahooqt.mxt

    Can I also get the previous Exchange Rate Retriever extension please. (The new combined extension fails on symbol RDS-B, so I need to go back to the old extensions. The old and new do not seem to cooexist in my extension list.)

    No Jessica, that is the Yahoo Quote Extension, I have already downloaded it to replace the new combined Exchange Rate/Quotes Extension that is not working for me.

    What I need is the old Exchange Rate Extension please.....

    Hi Tony,

    Sorry, I misread your email. Unfortunately, I can't find a copy of that extension. However, I know that a bug was fixed in the next build of the current extension that was causing problems with symbols that contain dashes. So, hopefully when a new build of that extension is released, you should be able to get info on that symbol. We do not yet have a release date for the next build of the extension, however. In the meantime, perhaps someone else will be able to send you a copy of the old extension.

    The developer of the quotes and exchange extension is working on a new build of the extension that allows for hyphenated symbols. This should clear up this issue.

    The new build (72) is in test and should be released shortly.
