New to Wealth-Lab Pro - Need intraday quote in Daily Data for current day until Market ends and then replaced quote with EOD

Is there a way the Data Manager could do this?

Daily Data Example

Date Symbol High Low Open Close

10/25 IBM 100 90 95 98 (correct EOD close for 10/25)

Current day Market not closed at 2:00pm

10/26 IBM 101 92 97 97 (This quote is not EOD quote but the quote for 2:00pm)
10/26 IBM 101 92 97 98 (This quote is not EOD quote but quote for 3:00pm and overwrites
previous 2:00pm Quote)
Market Close 10/26
10/26 IBM 101 92 97 99 (EOD quote at market close - overwrites 3:00pm quote)

If there a way to do this in Wealth-Lab Pro? My current software system will do this with data updates and allows me to avoid intraday data and all the performance/data problems.

Found Is there some way to have the Data Manager do this in the update?

Bill, if my understanding is correct you're trying to get the current EOD close in your Strategy code running on Fidelity EOD data before the end of the day?

While a scripting solution is possible, some data providers return the "partial bar" - in the first place, Yahoo. To enable this option, check "Always return data with partial bar" on the Data Manager's Yahoo! Data tab. Now when you run a Strategy or view a EOD chart of Yahoo data with File > Update Data on Demand enabled, static data will include the current day's partial bar, and the last bar will be corrected on each update.

Thanks Eugene, yes "partial bar" is exactly what I'm looking for. I checked Yahoo data after your post and saw a checkbox for "partial bar" as you mentioned. I'm using Fidelity Daily Data. I didn't see a "partial bar" option for Fidelity Daily Data. Are intraday quotes my only option?
