Hello -

I have a download script that works fine for almost all symbols except a few - when reviewing the parser output window there are no errors - HOWEVER the data appearing in the quotes database is 0 for open high low close - vol and OI looks right...

I've tried the following:

1. Deleted Downloader and Recreated
2. Deleted Data and Symbol and Recreated
3. Compared URL output in a text editor for working symbol with non working to identify issues with the API. no differences. - Parser Output also displays the correct data - but doesn't actually make it into the Quotes database - With exception to Volume and OpInt - Open, High, low, Close are "0"


4. Deleted the Account and Recreated
5. Uninstalled QS - Upgraded and Reinstalled - Added a new account- from scratch.

6. Created a New Custom Database - - THIS WORKS??!! - The data is there as it should be...

Why doesn't it work for the Quotes Database??>>>!!! Again its only some symbols.... BTC works fine - TRX and MANA give me issues - but it works fine if I use a custom database...

Thanks for your help!

Please follow instructions here to debug a downloader:

If the value is zero, it could be because the parser were not able to parse the value to a numeric one (Quotes and Custom database uses somehow different logic). Maybe some extra spaces where added or maybe the culture info is different that the culture of the user that created the downloader.
