Because the GETDATA() function uses a colon to determine which exchange to use you cannot create a custom symbol containing one. For example, XLK:SPX is telling GETDATA to look for XLK in the SPX exchange, which doesn’t exist so therefore won’t return any values.

We’ll look into a possible fix for this, but in the meantime you would need to change your custom code symbols to eg XLK/SPX if you wish to reference it in a GETDATA() function.
