Is this one broken too because of Yahoo's weird behavior?

I am only getting errors when I am trying to download unadjusted data. I think Yahoo's columns while downloading is now switched between Close and Adjusted Close. Yikes!!

Thank you,

This is VUSTX from Yahoo Finance. I downloaded the .csv file for one year and just copied and pasted the first few lines from the .csv file.

Date Open High Low Close Adj Close Volume
7/18/2016 13.84 13.84 13.84 13.195798 13.84 0
7/19/2016 13.92 13.92 13.92 13.272077 13.92 0
7/20/2016 13.84 13.84 13.84 13.195798 13.84 0

Take a look... The columns for Close and Adj Close are transposed. Can we have the downloaders edited to take care of this mess by Yahoo?

Thank you Maji
