Now that share price download has ceased, does anyone have a viable &
efficient method of getting share prices with Import?

Yes. There are a couple programs that will download from Yahoo, and
pass the results to Money.

PocketSense works well, but at this point it does not handle symbols
of more than 12 characters.... It's actually a Money limitation.

hleOfxQuotes is written in Java. I have not tried it, but I think it
has a translation table method where a longer symbol can be used to
fetch the quote, and a shorter symbol can be sent to Money with the
quote value.

Thanks Cal for the ref to hleOfxQuotes. The version your link points
to doesnt work properly with UK MSMoney but the latest version at
http://code.google.com/p/hle-ofx-quotes/ works fine picking up a csv
files from a www.ft.com share portfolio and sending an OFX file to
Money.

It just needed a bit of data changing - share codes become XXX:LSE
rather than XXX or XXX.L.

I havent yet been able to get fund prices sorted.
