get a stock quote in open office calc

I used to (2 weeks ago) use "getquote" to get the value of a stock ticker symbol.  I noticed my OpenOffice Calc retirement tracking spreadsheet (I look at stock values after the news occasionally) quit working.  I also noticed my "=getquote("SGENX")" formula changed to:

=com.ejs.ooo.getquote.getquote("SGENX")

I didn't do that and neither way currently works.  How do I get stock values in OpenOffice Calc?

I just checked mine and getquote is still working for me.  I even got a return for SGENX.  I believe something got corrupted on your machine.  Lets try a couple things, but first, please provide some details in case we need to dig further.  Please post the version of OpenOffice you are running (Please verify that you are using OpenOffice and not LibreOffice - two separate forks of the same base code, but need to know for troubleshooting).  Also, what version of GetQuote are you using?  You can find this out my opening Tools >> Extension Manager.  

Things to try.  Open a new sheet and put in your formula again.  Does it work on a new sheet?  If so, you other sheet may just be corrupted.

If it does not work, from the extension Manager I would remove the extension.  Download it again (http://getquote-tedsoft.blogspot.com/) and re-install.  Then put your formula on a new sheet.  Does it work now?

ltlbearand3: When I hover my mouse over the spreadsheet icon, the name libreoffice calc pops up.  

I go :
ubuntu 13.10: libreoffice calc -> Tools -> Extension manager ?????

I will try and to install this on a libre office machine tomorrow and test on my end.  Although I only have access to Windows boxes at this stage so I cannot do a full comparison.  

To me it looks like the extension is not installed.  Can you try to install it again?
