How can I share my custom queries and reports with others?

When you define custom screening and report items, you have the option to save them for later use. These saved items are placed in the Prospector database file. You will need to export them to a file outside of Prospector if you want to share them with others.

  • First, make sure that the query you want to export is the one currently being used by Stock Prospector (Either by going through the WIZARD, or by using one of the more defined queries under CRITERIA.
  • Once this is done, go to FILE > EXPORT QUERY TO FILE
  • Make sure to give the file a name.
  • Make note of where the file is being saved. ICLUBcentral suggests saving the file to your desktop or Documents folder, as they are easy to find, and commonly used by other programs.
  • Click SAVE to save the file on your computer. This will create a .qdf file on your computer that any copy of Stock Prospector can then import.

Error message: "Unable to unzip data, corrupt zip archive."

This is most commonly due to an interruption in your connection to the Internet while you were downloading the company data.

This could be for a number of reasons. One common thing we see is that an Internet connection timed out -- if this is possible, we suggest to either monitor the download so that your Internet connection stays active or adjust your time-out settings so that you have enough time to download the file without the connection shutting down.

Here's how to delete your temporary Internet files so you can download again from scratch:

  1. START > CONTROL PANEL > INTERNET OPTIONS
  2. Go to the GENERAL tab > TEMPORARY INTERNET FILES.
  3. Click DELETE FILES.
  4. Next, select START > MY COMPUTER and go to C:\Program Files\ICLUBcentral\Stock Prospector\NAICDATA\
  5. Delete the file called COMPANY.ZIP by clicking on it once and pressing the DELETE key on your keyboard.

Open up Stock Prospector and import the file again.
