My copy of the above snippet no longer seems to work.

Can you send me a link to the most up to date working version please.

    Hi Michael

    Provided you have a resent version of Moneydance that supports the Extension Toolbox, install then run Toolbox and you will find the FIX: Thin/Purge Price History under Menu Currency and Security tools.

    Hope this helps

    Hi Michael,
    Thank you for contacting Moneydance support.

    Could you let us know which version and build of Moneydance are you using?
    To check, open Moneydance and select Help --> About Moneydance, where the version and build number will be displayed.

    Please note with the latest version you should not need to run the Price History Thinner script anymore. That being said if you could describe the issue you are encountering we might be able to troubleshoot further.

    Thank you

    Maddy, Infinite Kind Support

    @michael. As Derek says, Price History Thinner is built into Toolbox and it lets you set thin/purge parameters.

    @Stuart I was referring to the script we used to send out before your Toolbox became a built in extension. Hopefully it makes sense now

    I just updated to 2022.1 (4058) and do not see a Toolbox or any means of getting to Price History Thinner. What am I missing? I would love to run the thinner as my price history files are enormous and really slow down everything.

    Answered my own question: Toolbox is an Extension that I just installed.

    To install Toolbox, please navigate to Extensions->Manage Extensions->Toolbox from within Moneydance.

    Launch Toolbox and choose Advanced mode (at the top left corner)
    Then navigate to MENU: Currency & Security tools(second option on the second row) and select Fix: Thin/Purge Price History (
