Q2006 one-step update


When I do a one-step update with Quicken 2006, one of the items on the list
is 'historical prices'. It never gets the red check mark next to it like
happens with the other accounts that get updated. And I can't find it in the
list of things to update. Anyone know why this item is there and why it
isn't processed? Thanks!

It does that if it thinks your quotes are not complete. Mine does it every day after the weekend when I skipped a few days. I think Intuit has changed the way quotes are downloaded and that only the current day's are downloaded from the quotes server and prior days' that was not downloaded are now retrieved from historical prices.
The check mark for me appears after the update of my first FI.
It sometimes does not seem to manage to download all historical prices and then it doesn't go away until eventually it manages to get all historical prices.

I've done a manual historical update, and run one-step update a number of times. The 'historical prices' item is always there and I've never seen it get a checkmark. I'll need to watch it for a few more days to be sure it's even getting the day's prices.

If I do a manual update of historical prices, it tells me it got quotes for 33 securities and updated 30 of 34 historical prices. But when I do a one-step update, it says none of the requested securities was recognized. I can't find any place to set the securities it tries to update historical prices for during a one-step update.

Corrected top-posting.
I doubt there is a place. It'll keep trying as long as it can, eventually it'll succeed or you'll grow used to seeing it in your one-step update.

I think if current and historical price updates work properly, you should never need to control historical prices in a One Step Update. Downloading historical prices on a regular basis should be redundant.

'If they worked properly' then you're right :-) But something new has started with Q2006 such that OSU puts an entry in the list and I don't have any control of it. That's not 'proper' in my mind.
