I realise that updata don't really intend anyone to use the built in portfolio manager as a serious tool . As you say they do sell Portfolio Professional, but it's £500 +VAT. I have been doing some searching on the internet and found a few that look reasonable but I'm probably going to use the NAIC Portfolio Record Keeper 4 - it's $120 and extracts price info from the free service providers amd does everything I need and more. Only "problem" is that you have to enter the number of shares divided by 100 to cater for the price updates in pence. What a hard life it is
Thanks for the link - from the Web page it appears that it only reads MetaStock data and as I'm using Updata I need something that either supports that format (unlikely I know ) or more likely that reads information from the Internet using one of the free service providers.
