CSI Dividend Info

Post by AFJ Garner » Mon Jun 30, 2014 2:26 pm

I am authorised at the CSI end to have access to dividends and yet the csv files built by trading blox are blank. Anyone else having this problem?

Probably a CSI error.

Check the UA/Archives/S folder and open the a0001000.txt file and see if you see something like this:

Thanks Tim. Turns out the naughty monkeys hadn't un-encrypted them it seems. Very negligent of me not to have spotted it before. I had been lazily using dividend adjusted files and recently changed to using the cash dividends.......However careful I try to be I still seem to make endless schoolboy errors.

I will see if we can provide a friendly error message to alert the user to the presence of naughty monkeys.
