I am just starting to use Moneydance, and have entered most items OK.
I have been able to manually insert historic dividends received over the past years. I would like to insert past share prices but don't understand how to do it.

    I am not support staff, just a user.
    There are at least five way adding historical security price data. Three are covered in the 2015 user guide starting at page 54, download link “http://help.infinitekind.com/kb/user-guides/moneydance-2015-user-gu... The ‘Quite and Exchange Rate’ extension looks the best, but other than exchange rates I don’t us it. Yahoo is the financial data site it uses and it does not cover all my securities.
    I also use two other extensions ‘Security price entry’ and ‘Security price loader’. The ‘Security price loader’ is a free down load from a third party https://bitbucket.org/mikerb/moneydance-2015/wiki/Extensions This has a good user guide on their site. Its .mxt file must be downloaded from there site and installed via EXTENSIONS – EXTENSION MANAGER – ADD FROM FILE in moneydance. Don’t worry about the warning message you will get.

    Which one you use depends on what works best for you.

    FWIW you can also import share prices from a CSV file if you have access to a service that can provide a suitable file.

    This capability is accessed from the Currency/Security History window for a security. Tools --> Securities and double click on the security is one way to access this window.
