Hi, can you provide an example of how it works? I tried putting in the symbol MSFT or AAPL and it says "Missing Format variable". Does it only work when markets are open?

thanks

@HammerD

Thanks for your interest! You need to add the Yahoo Tags in the dialog box...best thing to do is to look at the image included in the archive to get an idea of how to use it, but basically if you add something like "xnsd1t1cl1" (no quotes) in the Yahoo Tags text dialog box and it will output the following:

Exchange (x), Name (n), Symbol (s), Last Trade Date (d1), Last Trade Time (t1), Change % (c), Last Trade Price (l1)

No need to worry...you can save your output preferences once you type it in the Settings dialog and hit save ...also, have a look at the Help menu item for more Yahoo Tags that are available.

It was years that I said Amiga camp needs little utilities like yours to show its vitality and prove Amiga is still useful for any random surfing of the net, i.e. for example home financing also. Thanks for your efforts. I will give a try to your program.

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.
