Hi Rav, Once again the correct price for SCG was downloaded correctly.
It looks as though I now have a permanent fix to my problem.
I was using quicken pp 2006 and had the same problem when I restored a back up all the currency lists and share prices didn't come through so the investments were showing zero. Even if I imputed the share prices and then did a back up and restored it I found the share prices and currency rates I just put in. I have a similar problem to Megan with Reckon Personal Plus 2017, except that only the price of the one share, ASX code SCG, doesn't update daily, and I have to manually do it. Ensure all your Australian stocks are Stock Type: Stock and Asset Class: Australian Stocks.
It says on the panel after the update - "Historical prices downloaded historical prices for 2 of 2 symbols - status 11 Apr 16 7.39pm" i.e. At the bottom of the portfolio page it says its updated as of today - but it isn't reflected in the price histories. I hope I don't have to pay a minute to have this fixed, I have already spent hours trying to fix this and other related problems.

For example, to update your file every Friday evening () after the relevant exchange markets close (modify the time accordingly for your time zone), you could add the following to your personal .
In the case of stocks, this commodity is the number of shares.
Very annoying if so as it essentially means the stock type classification is of no worth since they are all classed as "Aust Stocks' anyway in asset class....
Moneydance can automatically download price information from Yahoo! Most of the ticker symbols that you can use with these sites are provided for download.

For example, to determine the Most Recent Value of a fixed income product with a Factor, Price is multiplied by Quantity and Factor, and that number is divided by 100.
For factored securities, as well as all fixed income securities, both the Most Recent Value and Previous value use the price determined as of the previous day's close of business valuation.
