Hi Folks,

Anyone using any good software to download Yahoo EOD data?  Any recommendations?  I used to use MLDownloader, but experienced errors when downloading.

Anyone can easily use VBA (such as Excel) to get a list of ticker data from the web, "cleaned" and saved to your machine, then execute a shell-script to run the MS Downloader and convert the downloaded data from its text/excel/whatever format to MS formatted data.

Hi Wabbit,

Thanks for your reply.  How are you these days?  I have not been here for years.

a) Well, are you taking about the tool like the following:

http://investexcel.net/importing-historical-stock-prices-from-yahoo-into-excel/

There is an error form the worksheet: Runtime error '1004'.  It said it cannot locate the Internet server or proxy server.

Anything got wrong?

oops!  it looks like ktstocks quite working recently.  I just received a message from them saying yahoo finance had quite offering EOD data.  I also read somewhere within the last few days that MLdownload'r quit working also (I believe they also use yahoo for their EOD data).

Yloader is working despite the Yahoo Finance changes. It is a free download that creates text file output that can be used in Metastock 15 via Custom Lists to work with Local Data such as the text files that Yloader creates.
