Does BBFree suffer from the same problems with splits after you have loaded the data as Google and NASDAQ http://www.wealth-lab.com/Profile/Panache? If so, since you are limited to downloading 6 years of historical data, like NASDAQ, reloading the data after a split results in less data than you originally had.

I'm still searching for a good data provider to use with Wealth-Lab, and I'm coming around to the view that if I don't want to have to manually deal with splits, my only options are Fidelity and Yahoo!.

No provider other than IQFeed, Yahoo, possibly BBLoader (?) and soon a new provider suite (TBA) offers split adjustment - mainly because splits are usually not a part of their free data.

You're right. Only a manual split would not affect the symbol's already downloaded data. Otherwise you may find the Data Tool useful to batch reload a DataSet.

Can you tell me what the URL is that BBFree downloads the data from? I can't find any place that purports to have historical stock prices.

It was private information and now the fun is over. The provider is being decommissioned.
