When the WL 8 program is turned on for several hours and it is necessary to test the system on Norgate data, not all tickers in the DataSet are used and the test results turn out to be incorrect. This is what the dataset looks like in the data manager:



But when you restart the WL program, everything is restored and works correctly. This has happened many times over the course of several months. This, of course, is not critical, but just in case, I’ll let you know, maybe there will be some ideas on this matter.

fred9999, this is your 2nd posting today in unrelated threads. Extracted offtopic from the topic on Norgate *event* data here because your question concerns *historical* data. Capisce? 😃

Norgate requires you to update all the data using the Norgate Data Update tool BEFORE opening WL8.

Norgate starts up for me when I turn on the computer and updates its data many times during the day. I turn on WL8 much later.

I'm not able to reproduce this, are you up to date regarding the version of the Norgate Updater and WL8? Are there any messages in the WL8 Log Viewer? I can reach out to Richard Dale at Norgate and see if he has any ideas.

The Norgate and WL versions are the latest. Today, too, it is not possible to reproduce, while everything is working. I periodically look into the Data Manager, all the data is there. As soon as they disappear, I’ll take a screenshot of LogViewer.

But it is missing only in Current & Past. Regular DataSets in place

After rebooting the WL8, the data appeared.

The way Wealth-Lab works, Data Sets are only populated at extension initialization time (i.e. when Wealth-Lab starts) - I don't think there's a way to change these dynamically.

So there's no good reason to keep Wealth-Lab running whilst there's possible background changes happening to the DataSets.

Reasons that the DataSet might change include:
- Security delistings
- Symbol changes
- Additions to the DataSet (eg. new constituent added by Index Provider)
- Removals from the DataSet (eg. constituent removed by Index Provider)

This doesn't quite explain why some were appearing blank, but you don't really want to be doing this anyway.

Dion will correct me if I'm wrong but technically the data client could poll for updates even on schedule and the companion DataSetProvider might trigger an event for WL8 to reload the DataSet(s) dynamically, e.g.
CODE:
EventRouter.FireEvent("DataSetProviderReloaded", this);
