Hi. Sorry for all of the questions. What software are you using to get the stock prices? Thanks.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I've had Quicken since 2009. Every day I click on update, and my updated stock prices come across. I don't know what else to tell you.
Expert:  ABC Accounting Group replied 8 months ago.

Since it is a 2009, they have no latest releases for that version.

However, you may have a corrupted history file. Since the version is unsupported, you may to upgrade.

Before doing this, I would see if the price history changed, if it is not updating during off-times (i.e. at night, before 9:30 am, etc.).

I would also try to create a new data file, to confirm that your prior data did not get corrupt.

Here are the steps:

1.Choose File menu > New Quicken File.

2.Select New Quicken File.

3.Click OK.

4.In the File name field, enter the name of the new file.
