Mike--In a post about someone with the same security in multiple instances, you said the following:
If you really want to do what you ask I suggest that you give each copy of the investment different ticker ids, eg.FUSVX, FUSVX2 etc. When you have created the csv file from hleofxquotes, edit the csv file and duplicate the relevant rows changing the Ticker as appropriate. Not ideal but it should allow you to do what you want.
I am not sure what you wish to achieve with having two entries for the same security. If you have the same security in different investment accounts then you only need one price update. The same price is used by both accounts. E.g.
Investment account one
Investment account two
When you load the price for FUSVX it will update both investment accounts.
My problem is that when I set up MD originally, I didn't understand the idea of different accounts for investments so that now I have for example the same security in four different listings and when I run your extension, it only updates one of them. I'm trying to find the .csv file that is alluded to above so that I can try what hleofxquotes said to do.
I haven't created a .csv file. I thought that the quote loader creates one from the posts that I read. If I need a .csv file, please tell me what it should come from and how I should create it. Thanks H
Have you considered fixing the mistake that you made of creating 4 instances of the same security?
It should be fairly easy to do, repetitive and time consuming probably but doable nonetheless.
Make a backup or copy of your data file beforehand.
You could rename 3 out of the 4 instances of FUSVX to 'GET RID OF THIS'.
Add the actual instance of FUSVX to the 3 accounts that don't hold it.
Change any transaction that displays 'GET RID OF THIS' in the 'Security' field to the actual instance of FUSVX.
Finally, delete the 3 instances of 'GET RID OF THIS'.
Again, make sure to have a working backup or copy of your data file before making drastic changes to your data file.
I didn't appreciate that you were talking about the Quote Loader as the discussion thread is about the Security Price Loader which is a different extension.
As Kevin has indicated the best way forward is to correct the original error which was the creating of more than one security for the same stock. The Quote Loader can not cope with this as there is a direct relationship between Ticker in Moneydance and the Ticker on the web.
Obviously I don't know your personal set up but I have the same security (Stocks and funds) in different investment accounts. When Quote Loader updates the prices it updates the prices of all accounts. I suggest you try and follow Kevin's process.
I'm sorry that I got the two things confused. When I originally purchased MD, the stock prices just worked and it has been frustrating that they have gone about a year without fixing the problem. I do appreciate all of the work that you and the others have done to fill the gaps.
I have now corrected the setup of my securities in MD but again my apologies.
