Hello Dear Group,
First of all, I really want to thank you for this group and the efforts put into this Excel add in.  I do have a question regarding the option expiration dates for the example template (smfGetOptionsQuote-Example_ITM-OTM).  What would I need to do in order to be able to select more expiration dates?  For example, for AAPL, I am only able to see the one for 2016-11-18, and then the next available date is 2017-01-20.  All the December options were missing.  What do I need to do in order to be able to select those dates?
Also I noticed OX, and Y doesn't work anymore but G still works.  What does G stand for anyways? :)

Thanks a ton!Johnny

This would get the data from Yahoo:

=smfGetOptionExpirations("AAPL","Y")

...and works fine for me and returns:

2016-11-18
2016-11-25
2016-12-02
2016-12-09
2016-12-16
2016-12-23
2016-12-30
2017-01-20
2017-02-17
2017-03-17
2017-04-21
2017-06-16
2017-07-21
2017-11-17
2018-01-19
2019-01-18

At the moment, that's the same thing "OX" returns. "G" for Google returns a
smaller set of dates, but it does have everything they show on their
website. At the time I wrote the function, Google was more reliable than
Yahoo, so I made it the default source. These days, Google is severely
lacking.
