      Are you not able to access the Excel file via the download link at the bottom of the post? You will need Excel 2007 with macros enabled.

    Hi Pattu,
    Thanks for the excel. It's a pretty useful tool. There are a couple of errors i noticed, NAVs arent available for download for some schemes. Example - HDFC top 200 - growth (normal option). I checked your code - it seems amfi code isnt the code used in yahoo finance for these schemes.
    Also daily NAVs are available only post 18th July 2012 for the schemes I checked. Before that, date, monthly NAVs are being downloaded. Please check. Thanks

      Thanks for pointing this out Raghav. That is a pity as not much can be done if AMFI code is not used. Reg. dates it does give since inception NAV for funds I checked. Perhaps it does not work with all funds.

      If there is another reliable source for NAV history I can replace Yahoo Finance with that.

      Thanks
