I'm seeing two different things that hopefully someone can help explain. When downloading historical daily data for some options, I will get several lines (only one in this case) at the end of the file without a timestamp (and all of the quote values will be zero). This normally occurs if there aren't many days of option data and I end up requesting data before early-2000.

In addition, for the request
HD,ABT_QF,1000;
the quote retrieval stops without ever issuing the !ENDMSG!, !SYNTAX_ERROR!, or !ERROR! end-of-message token.

The missing timestamp line is shown below in bold.
2000-02-10 05:43:57,0.000,0.000,0.000,0.875,0,0
2000-02-09 05:43:57,0.875,0.875,0.875,0.875,0,0
2000-02-08 05:43:57,1.0625,1.0625,1.0625,1.0625,0,0
2000-02-07 05:43:57,1.3750,0.9375,0.9375,1.0625,0,0
,0,0,0,0,0,0


Any hints as to how to avoid this are greatly appreciated.

Is there a log of any kind on the IQFeed software that could shed some light on this issue?

-Eric

P.S. I've seen this both with my own software and with the Java LookupClient, so it seems logical that it's either a problem on the DTN server side or the IQFeed software (which may include something interacting with IQFeed on my computer).

ABT_QF has only 710days of data. The bad line was the 711th data point returned.

There was a bad entry after the last data point on the server.

These will need to be corrected manually.

Can you give us a list of other symbols you are having problems with?

Hi Steve,

Thanks for the effort / sorry it has to be done manually! I'm out of time for today, but will put together a list for you Wednesday morning.

Would you like me to email the list to you -- if so, please send me a message with your email address.

Any wishes on the format since I'll write a script to generate the list for you so I don't miss any tickers.

-Eric

You can either post the list here or I will send you a PM with the developer support email address.

Any format is fine.

And to answer your question about logging. IQConnect has a logging feature that can be turned on via a registry setting. You can check the developer documentation for instructions.

Hi Steve,

I finally got that error report list put together for you and have emailed it to the developer's email address.
