I am here again. I did some thought about how to solve the “restate” issue since there are many many data series in the FRED database that are restated.
Perhaps it would be a good idea that you update your Optuma FRED database every day so the Optuma FRED database has the same data history as the FRED database on their web site and each time an Optuma user opens a watchlist or chart that includes a FRED data series the WHOLE data series file is downloaded from the Optuma FRED database and replaces the old FRED data series file that is already stored on the user’s computer.
A part of the issue, as far as I am able to understand it, is the “old” FRED data series file that is already stored on the user’s computer. That data file has to be replaced and not only updated with the lastest data. The data history is the problem not the update with the current data.
