Microsoft money not updating share prices
This option is useful if your Money file is password protected, but you don't want to use the -p option in your shortcut.Obviously placing the password in the shortcut is insecure because the password is in plain text in the shortcut properties.One idea is to put the MSMoney Quotes shortcut on your taskbar and use it to open Money.Then while Money is open, if you’d like to update quotes again, you simply click the shortcut again to update quotes.
Consider using the -m option if MSN Money is unable to consistently resolve symbols. If -t is specified, then MSMoney Quotes will import an additonal timestamp column from the csv file and use it for the time of last sale.To use the -a option, you should do one of the following: If -m is specified, then MSMoney Quotes will look for a Symbol file in the same folder as MSMoney and use it to resolve symbols.Symbol is used to manually map symbols from your Money file to symbols on MSN Money (aka financial instruments).Using the -r option means you will no longer need to use the -p option in your shortcut, and thus your password is more secure.Note that you will still need to enter the password in Money in order for it to open the Money file. If -o is specified, then MSMoney Quotes will automatically open Money in addition to updating quotes.
