I have a stock market feed on a webpage and it uses the Yahoo Finance csv file feeds via xml. For months it has been working fine. Recently the Dow Jones feed has been giving me a "subscript out of range error". In my code its the feed in the obj reference. The Nasdaq (obj2) and NYSE (obj6) feeds are fine. I even tried using the following link in the code for obj: http://finance.yahoo.com/d/quotes.csv?s=%5EDJI&f=sl1d1t1c1ohgv&e=.csv but I get an access denied error. Has Yahoo changed something or do I need to update the link in some way?

Dim obj,obj2,obj6



Set obj = Server.CreateObject("MSXML2.XMLHTTP")

obj.Open "GET", "http://download.finance.yahoo.com/d/quotes.csv?s=%5EDJI&f=sl1d1t1c1ohgv&e=.csv", false

obj.Send

resp = obj.ResponseText

set obj = nothing



Set obj2 = Server.CreateObject("MSXML2.XMLHTTP")

obj2.Open "GET", "http://download.finance.yahoo.com/d/quotes.csv?f=sl9d1t1c1cohgvabjknpx&s=^IXIC", false

obj2.Send

resp2 = obj2.ResponseText

set obj2 = nothing



Set obj6 = Server.CreateObject("MSXML2.XMLHTTP")

obj6.Open "GET", "http://download.finance.yahoo.com/d/quotes.csv?f=sl9d1t1c1cohgvabjknpx&s=^NYA", false

obj6.Send

resp6 = obj6.ResponseText

set obj6 = nothing



dim lines,lines2,lines6 ' array for how many stocks

lines=split(resp,Chr(10))

Interesting you should ask that.  A friend just called me up and asked me to create a 'portfolio' and do the Excel download because the DJI was not showing up in his download.  He was right, it doesn't, he wasn't imagining things and it wasn't his computer.

And here's why: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/finance/known_issues/fitaki-13.html

"Because of new restrictions implemented by the Dow Jones Index, Yahoo! is no longer able to provide Dow Jones Index data for download in CSV format. We apologize for any inconvenience."
