In the event anyone still has the addin working it would be good to know as it would eliminate the above as a cause of my problems.

The tlfaddin is working for me at the moment - but a lot slower than usual. I thought that it might have been because I am on a different PC but, now I've seen this news, it could be related to the Yahoo issues.

I looked at the Excel and LibreOffice versions of HYPTUSS and they both successfully get prices from Yahoo, but very, very slow. Normally get data back in 1-2 seconds, but now it's nearer 30. Strangely, a browser-based query such as https://query1.finance.yahoo.com/v7/fin ... se.L,vod.l still works almost immediately, and this is the same data that is read by HYPTUSS

I have just tried in LibreOffice Version: 6.2.4.2 and the speed is normal. Yahoo has been having server problems this morning that took down Yahoo Mail (back now). This may have been a related problem.

Yes, looks like we are back to normal, Bree. I wonder if the Yahoo techies can now fix Brexit :)

I've replied to someone with an issue with this addin on another random request thread. I don't think it is an issue with the addin itself but you never know:

viewtopic.php?f=27&t=19575&p=252578#p252578

But as you can see from my response, basically I'm moving on from this addin solution to better technology so won't be able to support it much anymore on here. I hope it was useful while it lasted, and hopefully for a while more if the api continues to be supported by yahoo.
