Everytime I start up v18, there is a delay while the "writing option symbols" occurs.  Since I don't use options I'd like to streamline the startup and skip this step.  Is there a way to do this?

This suggestion has already been made, and may work its way out in a future release. If I remember correctly, there is nothing that you can do in the interim

Thanks...if they'll just put their energy into getting accurate fundamental data, I don't mind waiting on this one.  It's just an unnecessary annoyance.

Michael and his Worden crew were in Chicago last weekend for their annual visit to the greatest city in the world.

He brought up something in class that's worth repeating here. Not trying to pass the buck, but the data is only as good as the providers who feed it to Worden.

To borrow a cliche from the post 9/11 days: If you see something, say something.

Yeah, it can be a pain in the a## but if you shoot off an email to Customer Service or post something here for StockGuy, they will look into it. These days there are massive amounts of data available, and I'm sure they'd appreciate all the help they can get.

Just a thought. :)
