Re: Revoke Art 50 petition

If there was a "Don't revoke Article 50" petition, I wonder how many votes that would get?

Re: Brexit all over?

My view is that we get what we deserve . If we don't like them, what are we, individually and collectively, going to do about it? Or are we just going to say "someone should do something about it" rather than get off our backsides and make an effort to change things? I understand where yo...

Re: Brexit all over?

I repeat what someone said to me a few weeks ago. We have the worst government we have ever had. AND the worst opposition. Who could argue with this? My own view is that both May and Corbyn are an absolute disgrace, and the front benches of both sides are truly awful. My view is that we get what we...

Re: Excel formula needed

start out with: C1: =IF(AND(A1=0,B1=0),"None","---") This will work for None, otherwise it will display "---" Now replace "---" with another IF: C1: =IF(AND(A1=0,B1=0),"None",IF(AND(A1=0,B1=1),"Granted","---")) That will work for ...

Re: BBC Presenters

The season doesn't open until tomorrow. When I'll be attempting not to catch nothing. The brown trout fishing season has started with gale force winds, lashing rain and some hail to liven up affairs, all combined with sub-arctic temperatures. I'm afraid I cannot confirm that I haven't caught nothin...

Re: RECOVERY ???

The recovery partition is almost certainly for restoring your PC to its initial state if you have a major problem. Effectively, a copy of Windows. It is generally close to full but that does not matter since the data never changes.

You can (and should!) ignore this partition

Re: New HYPTUSS versions 11.65 and b-j

I have a Canadian/US share in my portfolio - Sun Life Canada (SLF) - which I've manually added to the data sheet and have been running satisfactorily for many years and versions. I couldn't retrieve the share price of course, but I just added that manually from my other spreadsheet after HYPTUS had...

Re: New HYPTUSS versions 11.65 and b-j

Hi Again kiloran, I see reading your HYPTUSS helpfile that it looks as though you are obtaining your prices from yahoo, is that right ?. In the past when their webservice was still working I used to use that, but since its been shutdown I have had to go elsewhere. How are you obtaining your prices ...

I am being "picky" now as I could fix this myself on my spreadsheet. Can you re-order the datasheet based on TIDM. I just went to add ZCASH using the ADD SHARE button and typed z in the window and it took me to ZPG. I had to scroll through to find ZCASH. Raptor. Easily done, but I'm not s...

Re: New HYPTUSS versions 11.65 and b-j

Noticed another small oddity in the Sector Weighting Chart. I have a small holding in Debenhams (which is now a tiny holding worth only 21 quid!). The graph shows it correctly under General Retailers as being tiny - 0.02%, but the listing shows it at the bottom of the list but as 1.52% - both on th...

I can confirm the problem. It seems to be OK with version b-h. I don't remember any recent changes to the price retrieval macro, but I'll review it and hopefully fix in the next day or so. --kiloran Thanks kiloran, glad to see it's reproduceable and not just a random event or something local to a p...

Hi Kiloran I too am getting the same error as Spiderbill. It gives the error on every price for every share I try to update prices on - even just the original table imported with only BP in the list.

Excel or LibreOffice? Which version? I don't think we made any changes to the price retrieval process, so this does seem a little odd.
