    Hello David,

    Sorry to hear you are having some difficulties with the exchange rate update.

    Did you experience a problem and what was error message generated?
    Was this the first update of exchange rates in the 2018 version?
    Were you updating both share prices and exchange rates?
    Does the error occur if you update currencies only? (Online > One Step Update, then untick Download Stock.... and tick only Download currency... Click Update Now)

    After you get the exchange rates updated for the first time updating both share prices and exchange rates will not be an issue.


    Hope this helps.

    regards,
    John

    Hello Archie,

    I'm sorry to hear you are still having problems with your share price updates. 

    Most users do not have the problem you describe, and those that did experience it have made corrections and are enjoying daily updates.  

    One common aspect that led to incorrect updates was the introduction of the ASX GSIC indices in the 2017 release  This entailed a change in the format of the security type: Market Index.  Previously this type correctly handled the secuity type: Stock, as it was never configured specifically for any type of security.  Since 2017 it would treat the price series as an Index only.  Any share inadvertently set with the type Market Index rather than Stock, produced a result 1,000's times higher.  Resetting the type option to Stock resulted in the correct prices appearing.  


    Hope this helps.

    If there are any other problems please let us know.


    regards,
    John
