Due to errors from the smfGetOptionQuotes() function, I have also reverted back to the 05.25 version and that is working for me, although I've noticed that the format for the option ticker has to be adjusted depending on the expiration date. For options expiring in Jan 2015 or before, the following syntax will work:
MSFT Jan 2015 $50 Call
MSFT 1/17 2015 $50 Call (note: 1/17/2015 is a FRIDAY)


For options expiring Feb 2015 or later, the following syntax will work:


MSFT 2/20 2015 $50 Call (note: 2/20/2015 is a SATURDAY)


For Feb options and later, the following will cause errors:


MSFT Feb 2015 $50 Call
MSFT 2/21 2015 $50 Call (where 2/21 is a FRIDAY)


Hopes this helps anyone using this function. Randy thanks for all your great work, this tool has been extremely valuable to me!

Unfortunately, the fix for that was done on 8/18, so it isn't in the
2.1.2014.5.25 version of the add-in.

But you have it reversed. Prior to February or 2015, monthly expirations
were on a Saturday, and now they will be on a Friday. That's so they will
match the weekly options, which do expire on Fridays.
