Becuase there is no standard symbol format used among all
brokerages and exchanges, to update quotes/prices for some
investment types (such as preferred stock, warrants, stock options, etc), you
have to find the symbol that MSN Money uses.
To find the appropriate symbol to use, follow these steps:
- Visit the following MSN Money Web site:
- In Investing, locate Stocks, and then click Find
- Do a search by using part of the investment
- If more than one investment is found, examine each one to
determine the appropriate symbol. For more information, look up "Find Symbol"
in online Help for MSN Money.
Note Money 98 and earlier have a Find Symbol button
on the Details page for each investment that will take you to Find Symbol on
the MSN Money Web site.
There is a Find Symbol
button that is available when you add a new investment in Microsoft Money 2005 and later versions.
