How do I insert "Ticker" instead of XOM.N, as I am doing in my message above.

I am using: RCHGetTableCell("http://www.reuters.com/finance/stocks/financialHighlights?symbol="&Ticker,1,"Valuation Ratios","P/E Ratio (",,,0) in the spreadsheet to extract PE from the Reuters Overview page, and was hopeful that another "Ticker" formula would be possible for getting the Closing from the same page.

I am using SMF Template: RCHGetTableCell_Key_Financial_Ratios_Reuter

My SMF Version is 2.1.2015.08.13

Just do it the exact same way:

=smfGetTagContent("http://www.reuters.com/finance/stocks/overview?symbol=
"&Ticker,"span",2,"id=""headerQuoteContainer""",,,,1)

Thanks, Randy. Works great.

Randy,

I'm getting some results that I can't figure out with ADVFN. Most tickers work fine and pull the financial data as it should. However, some tickers return nothing but ERROR. I have tried the fix provided in the Tips and FAQs and it resolved other issues I was having but not this one.
Here are my issues:
1) Some tickers return only the Quarterly financials but not the Annual results and vice versa sometimes. For example NFLX returns the annual reports but not the quarterly reports but IBM return the Quarterly financials but returns ERROR for the Annual reports.
2) Another issue that I can't resolve is why some tickers requires imputing the exchange along with the ticker. For example, the only way I can get anything to return on IBM is by putting NYSE:IBM in my ticker field but I can just put in NFLX and it will work.
3) Almost all the tickers return ERROR for the Quarterly results for Quarters #6-10 using the smfGetAdvFNElement.

Any thoughts?

Responding to what you previously asked another poster...
What do you get for:

=RCHGetElementNumber("Version")
I get: Stock Market Functions add-in, Version 2.1.2015.08.13 (C:\SMF Add-In\RCH_Stock_Market_Functions-2.1.2014.10.23.B; www; Local; 1)
=RCHGetTableCell("http://www.advfn.com/p.php?pid=financials&symbol=KO&mode=annual_reports&start_date=0 http://www.advfn.com/p.php?pid=financials&symbol=KO&mode=annual_reports&start_date=0", 1, "year end date")
I get:
Error http://www.advfn.com/p.php?pid=financials&symbol=KO&mode=annual_reports&start_date=0
=smfGetAdvFNElement("KO","A",999)
I get:
22

=smfGetAdvFNElement("KO","A",1,">year end date<")
I get:
2014/12
Thanks in advance.

It sounds to me like AdvFN is defaulting to a non-USA exchange. Those
tickers that aren't working probably have a company on that exchange that
uses the same ticker, or it's still the US company, but they didn't store
the financials on it.

If you type this address in your browse, does it stay the same in the
address bar, or are you redirected to another website (e.g.
http://uk.advfn.com):

http://www.advfn.com/

As an example, see the discussion on the thread around this message:

When I put in the uk domain it stays as http://uk.advfn.com http://uk.advfn.com
When I put in advfn.com it redirects to http://www.advfn.com http://www.advfn.com

thanks for your quick response.

OK. If you're in Chicago, redirection shouldn't be an issue. Let's focus on
one company that's causing you issues. What do you get with:

=smfGetAdvFNElement("NFLX","A",999)

=smfGetAdvFNElement("NFLX","Q",999)

=smfGetAdvFNElement("NFLX","A",1,">year end date<")

=smfGetAdvFNElement("NFLX","Q",1,">quarter end date<")

=smfGetAdvFNElement("NFLX","Q",6,">quarter end date<")

=smfGetAdvFNElement("NFLX","Q",10,">quarter end date<")

=RCHGetWebData("
http://www.advfn.com/p.php?pid=financials&mode=quarterly_reports&symbol=NFLX",
"/stock-market/", 50)

Can you exit and restart EXCEL and try them in a new worksheet? Any changes?

Restarting fixed all my problems. Thanks a million Randy. I've literally have been trying to figure this out for the last 4 hours and you solved my issues in a couple of emails. Thanks again!

What probably happened is you were trying to access AdvFN when they were
doing something to the website or one or more of their servers. So some
pages weren't being retrieved properly from them (causing "Error" results).
The add-in saves a copy of a web page before extracting data from it, so
once you get an "Error" result, you'll continue to get that result until
that faulty saved copy of the web page is purged. That can be done either
via the smfForceRecalculation macro (see "Tips and FAQs" web page) or by
exiting and restarting EXCEL.

gotcha that makes sense. I hadn't closed my excel file in a few days while I've been updating it to get advfn data as opposed to gurufocus. Thanks again much appreciated. Next time restarting will be my first step.
