Historical price data for Australian shares not downloading

PCPC Member Posts: 3

I had a corrupted Quicken File around 20/8/20 in Reckon Accounts 2020 (desktop) and reinstalled a backup copy of the file. Old share price data was apparently not imported giving me no share price history and erroneous reports for net worth and share balances. Since then share price data uploaded normally until I upgraded to Reckon Accounts 2021.

However since 31/12/2020 share price history will not update on this particular file whereas a different Quicken 2021 file updates correctly when using one step update or going through Investing/OnlineActivities/Download Quotes.

Download Historical prices is apparently for US securities only?

I have two questions

1. How to get share data to download correctly?

2 Can I merge an older QPH with the current QPH file and substitute this in the programme to recover historical prices going back 5 years?

I have Reckon Accounts running on Mac OS Catalina v10.15.7 with Windows10 under Parallels virtual environment.

    Extremely thankful for Gerry who talked me through resurrecting my old files and getting price downloads working again. Unfortunately cannot merge old price data QPH files which will need to be entered manually.

    Really appreciated your help Gerry.
