Problem Importing price Data on renamed stock. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I own some General Mills stock.  Apparently the stock was recently renamed from General Mills to General Mills, Mn.   The  stock symbol (GIS) remained the same.  I use  hleOfxQuotes to download price data in Money Sunset.  When I tried today I got a screen saying that General Mills, Mn was not in my portfolio and did I want to add it, or change it to an existing stock in my portfolio?  But when I chose to select an existing stock, General Mills did not appear in the dropdown list.  If I selected, "This is a New Investment", a box came up that there was already a stock with this Symbol. 

    I went into the details of my stock and renamed it to General Mills, Mn, but that did not help.   I also did a quick repair and went back to several backups, but the problem persisted. 

    Since I prefer not to go back even further, I would appreciate learning the trick to fix this situation on my current file.

  • For some reason it is working again without any new action on my part.
