SEEKING CONTROLS FOR OBTAINING STOCK MARKET QUOTES

Has anyone had any experience obtaining stock market quotes using VB.  I need to obtain quotes for a listing of stocks, say 10-20 stocks, in a batch.  If I can obtain the quotes, I can display % Change related to what you actually bought the stock for, versus % Change in relation to the open price of the day (irrelevant).  They do not have to be real time quotes, but I absolutely must have access to Over-The-Counter bulletin board stocks.

This seems like the kind of specialized task someone here has probably already covered...

your best bet would be write a parser for an HTML page from ft.com or a similar site.

Take a look at dev-soft's site (http://www.dev-soft.com/). They have a sample program with their ipWorks controls that gets stock prices from Yahoo.
