I have created a folder on my account that I have shared with anyone who has this link.

I have put a test spreadsheet in there. Anyone with Google Docs should be able to open it. They will not be able to edit the spreadsheet, but they can copy it and save it to their own Google Docs account. From there they can edit the spreadsheet.

The only identifiable information of mine that is on the spreadsheet that shows up is my name "Aim High". Thus I wouldn't do this if I wanted to keep my privacy and my personal name was on my gmail account.

I just got an update to the Drive app. Now I need to fake up a Sheets spreadsheet on a new account and give it to aim-high. It'll be really simple, like three accounts with three funds/stocks each, but enough to get the idea.

Wow, had no idea Google had all of that built-in. DH has a system to update our portfolio tracker but I think it's pretty kludgy compared to this. Think we'll look into this. Thanks for all the tips!

Here is a link to a spreadsheet that I've set up to read Google stock and fund functions for ETF, Stock, and MF.

If you sign in to google, then you can copy the sheet to your own drive and edit.
I hope. LOL.

There is also a sheet to see how to read in Yahoo data. That still needs some work.
