Hello anyone who uses the FinancialData function, I used to be able to get the members of the S&P500 and the S&P100 using FinancialData["SP500", "Members"] and then the ticker symbols to do analyses. But both yesterday and today, the function returns, what appears to be a dash or hyphen (-). This also happens for industry members such as FinancialData["Books", "Members"] and FinancialData["Drugs", "Members"], where I used the examples in the built-in Help system, but foreign exchanges like Frankfurt work fine. Any thoughts on why this happens? I'm concerned because I have notebooks that I share with students and colleagues, and the analyses in them can't be done if the ticker symbols are not picked up! Regards, Gregory
