Recently, we have heard from several members who mentioned a need for historical stock quotes. Although quotes can be obtained on Yahoo! Finance, the website does not provide an easy way to sort the quotes if you were looking for, as an example, yearly highs and lows. DownloaderXL solves this problem by allowing users to download historical quotes directly into Microsoft Excel. To take it one step further, AnalyzerXL allows users to perform technical analysis on the figures, as well.

DownloaderXL and AnalyzerXL are installed using two separate downloads, both of which are available in AAII's Download Library. After installing the product, the additional functions will automatically appear in the “Add-Ins” section of Microsoft Excel. To use the data download feature, simply select DownloaderXL, and a separate window will pop up. Input your start and end dates, ticker, fields (date, open, high, low, close, volume, and adjusted closed), and beginning cell. If you would like the data to be plotted, there is a box you can check. DownloaderXL will download the historical quotes from Yahoo! Finance and populate Excel with the data.
