"Update Prices Online" works about 1 time in 100

I have 2004 Deluxe. It's the 3rd version I've had. The "update prices
online" has always been unreliable, but the last couple weeks it almost
never works. I get the "unable to connect to the quotes server" message.
The Money Updates part of the process always works, so Money is able to use
my internet connection.

I've seen posts here about problems with the service MS uses for quotes. Is
that still the source of the problem? Are other people seeing reduced
reliability of the online update?

On a side note, I really hate that canned message "check your internet
connection and try again".

I have Money 2004 Standard and I'm having the same
problem. Although when it does work (hit and miss) it
either doesn't update my mutual fund prices or they are 2
days behind. This is a fundamental component of the
program, why is it such a problem?

YEEESSSS. This is infuriating. Are they only using one quotes server? I've
found a certain ritual that seems to work for me. I hit "Update Quotes", do
five jumping jacks, bark like a dog, and do the chicken dance....and that
seems to increase the odds that the quotes will get updated moreso than if I
just hit "Update Quotes".

Fund price updates are at the whim of the Fund manager. The price only
changes when they do a revaluation of the fund. It certainly doesn't get
done hourly and perhaps once a day if they feel like it. Some funds only
update weekly.

I tried this and it solved my update problems -- am using Money 2003
Canadian Edition.

I tried this and I still have update problems. Is it necessary to get a MS
passport to make this work? I haven't done that.

Thanks

Bob, if the prices on the MSN home page, and on the
Fund's own web page show the latest price, am I expecting
too much of Money 2004 to get it right. Although it says
the update call was completed, I have had it calling for
4 days now and no changes have been updated although MSN
shows activity in that period!!

Does anyone have a definitive answer to this problem -
and no, I dont wand to do backflips and bark like a
dog!!!!
