I have been using Quicken Personal Plus for more than 10 years.

I have never been able to automatically update share prices using the following codes for

All Ordinaries    AORD or XAO

ASX 200          AXJO or XJO

ASX 100          AXTO or XTO

DOW JONES   DJI

Which codes should I be using and why doesn't the codes I am using work.

I have no trouble with downloading any other stock prices automatically.

Hi,

I don't seem to be able to download prices for South 32 (S32). Has anyone else had that problem?

Hi Chris,
Make sure you use S32 as its Stock Code.

Mine downloaded fine today:

Did you go to the list of shares to download in the one step update settings, select quotes and tick S32?

Hi Macca56, Chris,

I tested my S32 entry and the price history updated in the normal manner without difficulty.


Do you have the Share setup correctly?




Running the One-Step Update:



(the 1/6/15 data is missing in this example as the update was not run for over a week - only the last 5 non-weekend days are available.)


Please check your South32 setup and try again.


regards,
John

In mine, all ords used to come in through XAO. That stopped on 6.11.08. Since then, I have not been able to find any way to get the automatic updating for any Australian Index.

I still do get automatic updates every day for:
DJI - Dow Jones
INX - S&P 500
COMPX - Nasdaq
NZ50 - NZSX 50

As a test, I just now 08:50 on 31/5/15 added S32 to my Security List, ran a price update and it was successful, brought in the last 5 days price history figures for S32.

Reckon Australia have abandoned any development of PP.  The All Ords download stopped working in 2008 when the ASX split the file containing security and index data into two.  Reckon (then Quicken) decided not to invest the resources to make the minor changes needed to read the index file and provide the download automatically,

I have spoken on several occasions to Reckon people about this with no change to the situation.  It's clear to me (at least) the least amount of investment is being made in this product to keep it going so that they can milk the annuity stream for as long as possible.
