Bryan,
I don't have a spreadsheet program. I read in IBD about ASPs that have tools online. Would that be a good idea for this project? A way everyone could use the same program online. You could set it up with the defaults required.

Otherwise, I suppose I could spring for excel or something compatible.

I assume you're entering all of the data available on the table so that all elements (like PE) can be tested.

Thanks for heading this up,
Mark


Thanks Mark,
I don't know a thing about ASPs.
We are entering all the data that I post every week. IIRC A/D wasn't available before Sept.92 or so. And all the tables before Sept93 don't have the ticker symbols. Thus those have to be looked up via "Daily Stock Price Record" a very tedious and time consuming process. This is a slow process but one worthy of completing IMHO. I have been importing the WER tables into MSFinder and here is a link to the latest http://briefcase.yahoo.com/ilmostro . Let me know your thoughts.
Bryan
