Security Detail - History

I have moved from Quicken to Moneydance with no problems with current data.
However, all the register transactions have successfully converted prices in pence (0.01 GBP) to pounds, but my history price detail has remained unchanged and Moneydance thinks that they are pounds (1GBP). Historic Net-worth is millions (LOL if only!) so the scaling make current data appear to be zero!

So the question is: is there anyway I can export - edit - import security 'History'?
or have I got to do it manually for each price in each security?

    Hi Tim

    I am sorry I have not responded sooner.

    If I understand you correctly the price of each purchase has increased 100 fold. However the price history is correct and other transactions in the system are also correct.

    Is it possible to set the units in Quicken that a security purchase is made with. I know that a lot of UK stocks are priced in pence not in pounds and pence. When you were using this data in quicken were the prices listed in pence? Is there an option in Quicken to change that?

    I am sorry for the inconvienience.

    Hi Ben,

    No, it is the other way around.

    Purchases & transaction are correct, it is just the history that is 100
    time too much.
    Can price history be exported and imported again? that way I could edit the
    erroneous data.

    Hi Tim

    I am afraid it is not possible to manually export price history, modify and then reimport it. You have two options.

    Option 1: Modify each entry in the price history by hand. While potentially extremely time onsuming this will ensure that you have the same number of entries as you had before.

    Option 2: Delete your price history and use the yahoo stock price retriever download historical prices form The trouble with relying on is that the amount of historical data they provide varies considerably from security to security. I just downloaded the history for GOOG and only received price history for the last 7 days. Which is far from useful.

    There is an existing ticket in our issue tracking system to add support for manually importing price history. Here is a link to the ticket:

    If you register and log into trac you can vote on tickets. we use the number of votes tickets get to help determine what to implement next.

    I am sorry for the inconvenience.
