I use BEST Schedules (
to schedule Mathematica tasks from real-time to weekly or monthly reports.
With this tool you can set exact execution time spans, define job priorities
in case two jobs are scheduled to run at the same time, and also block
execution for any non-interesting conditions (e.g. weekends or night-time).
This scheduler runs 7-24, thus it will use one of the two Mathematica
processes usually available in default configurations.

Jobs scheduled can be any Mathematica script.  These scripts usually don't
generate output cells but create output is data (csv, xls, etc.) or
graphical (gif, png, etc.) files.

This is a tool that I usually combine with data manipulation and analysis
functions in MXLPlus or BEST Viewpoints.  Although I frequently need to
combine Mathematica with spreadsheets to meet my client needs, I usually
find a way around them when generating Mathematica solutions.  My contact
info is in Contact Us in my web site

Subject: [mg104020] [mg104000] Streaming Real-Time Stock Quotes in Mathematica

Has anyone successfully used YaHoo real-time streaming quotes (a premium
subscriber service) within a Mathematica model?  I have built some financial
models that use quote data from excel spreadsheets, but would like to access
streaming quotes.  One idea is to access an excel spreadsheet that already
receives streaming updates but I don't know how to link Mathematica to an
open and running spreadsheet instead of the static spreadsheet file.  If
anyone has experience in this area,  some help would be immensely
