Do you have a secure way of seeing who the author is or who should I call?
Maybe clicking on options or....
Sometimes the authors will put their name and a contact address in the Help/About menu option. Otherwise you will need to do some research, starting with the person or company that supplied the program.
One can think effectively only when one is willing to endure suspense and to undergo the trouble of searching...
Please use [CODE]...your code here...[/CODE] tags when posting code. If you get an error, please post the full error message and stack trace, if present.
You are going to a deep end of the pool, with practically no idea of what you are doing and absolutely none of how to get there. Here is what I propose:
First of all, isolate the issue completely from the Reuters implementation. Anything that you do in your SEPARATE program does not need to have anything to do with the Reuters application as such. What you are doing is an application, that for example, polls on changes in its source file / files, when changed, reads the data and produces a visual result. All of this you can do, and when applicable, implement Reuters data to work with your application (eg. something that writes the Reuters data in a form you understand).
If you drive yourself married to a service -vendor such as Reuters, you will find yourself making decisions that bring possibly large issues when the winds of your ambition change, to. eg. actual Stock Market data. You are best off if you understand what the data in general contains, what is its intended purpose, yet, keep your independence, cards in hand. Clearly, lack of insight leads to apparent inconsistencies and demands to change your view. That happens, yet changes not the general principle.
That being said, the whole of the thing is far from slam dunk simple, considering your apparent level of coding expertise, it is likely to contain a full set hurdles to tackle. For that, again, start with something simple. For instance: What is the data like? How do you read it in? Once that works, next set of hurdles...
