for December 2019 security prices downloaded only on Fridays. Historic prices do not downloadfor Dec

I already was in contact through Customer Service located in Guatemala and spoke on tel with 3 reps/ technicians. One advised to talk to Morningstar, the provider of the daily security closing prices.
Wasn't there recently a Quicken announcement about historic prices and storage?
Is there a price datafile kept in Quicken?

    I previously held IBM, but I sold the last of in in 2005 and HID the security.
    SO, just now, I un-hid it and tried to download "Historical Quotes"
    It downloaded daily quotes from today 2/26/20 back to 1/27/20 and then weekly quotes back to 3/1/19 and then monthly quotes back to 2/27/15.
    SO, I believe that I can confirm what you're reporting.
    Try downloading quotes into a CSV file and then importing that into Q.  Search Q Help for "Import Security Prices" for info about this.

    According to Quicken Help, if you download historical prices from within Quicken,
    • Quicken downloads daily prices of the selected securities for the most recent month,
    • weekly prices for the 11 months prior to that,
    • and monthly prices thereafter for a maximum of 5 years.
    To import a CSV file with quotes:
    Read up in Quicken Help about the file format requirements.
    Search Contents for "import quotes" and read the article "How do I import data into Quicken", section "Import security prices using a CSV file"

    The last step says “Import File Data from ASCII File”
    How do I set up such file within Quicken? Or in Exel?
    I would put in this file IBM, 128.00, 12/31/02
    followed in next line with another symbol.

    The message I receive:
    No valid prices to import.
    What needs correcting?
