  1. 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

    1. 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
