    No longer getting data!

    Well, finally Ricks script can no longer find the data - anyone know how to fix?:

    ~!~Warning~!~Could not get data from URL, error -2146697210 URL=http://mobile.esignal.com/wml/quotecheck.asp?Z=1&S=$INDU


    Looks like it might be (but I couldn't get it to work):

    http://mobile.esignal.com/quotes.asp...NDU&type=index

    or for a stock:

    http://mobile.esignal.com/quotes.asp...=GE&type=stock

    This has been a great script which announces well, and I can't remember half of what I did to it - but it just can't get the data now.

    Thanks,

    GLT

      What - no one uses this anymore? Sell all yours stocks to buy HA software?

      Well, I'll see if I can't fire up my old (but still supported) version of H*A*L that has stock price functionalty built into the (supported) program. That should take care of it.

      Thanks,

          Glt,
          I just noticed the post today. I've been working on the script as I noticed it died a few days ago. I've got mine working right now. Kinda hacked up but it is running. They changed the site slightly and I did make a crude work around.


          Use the address below to just look at the site. It wont work if you substitute it
          in the original script.
          "http://mobile.quote.com/quotes.aspx?symbols=XXXX&type=stock"
          change the XXXX to your stock.

            Thanks Tim & Stuart,

            Tim:

            I rely on mine to SPEAK the stock values and the one you posted doesn't appear to do that. I made some customizations on how it speaks things, so I would really like to fix this script.

            Stuart: You said:
            "It wont work if you substitute it
            in the original script."

            Yeah - it seems I tried the same thing, but it didn't work - although it apperared to get data for at least one of the stocks.

            I think you are on the right track, I think all that needs to be changed is the URL which should be a quick fix - but I just don't get why it doesn't work.

            If I can fix it, I'll post the solution, hope you'll do the same.

            Maybe Rick could chime in - it's his script and worked for several years.

            Thanks,

            GLT

              Glt,
              This script is working right now. I made a few changes and it seems to be okay. I put in a few samples and they seem to work ok.
