Edit download list

Editing of the download list is done using the window below. In case all download lists have been deleted, QuoteStocker will create a short standard download list and the window below is automatically opened. Please do not forget to backup the download lists regularly.

QuoteStocker comes with a large number of download lists. In the upper section of the window, you can select the list that you want to edit. If you want to delete or change an item of a list, you have to select it first.

In the lower section of the window, you find two text fields, ‘Code’ and ‘Name’. You use these for changing an item or adding an item to the selected download list.


The code in the download lists is the code that is used by Yahoo!. QuoteStocker uses this code to retrieve the quotes from the Yahoo!-site. Please be aware to use the correct code so that you download the correct quotes. An example of how to find a new code for your download list is explained here.

There are four functions for managing the download lists: add a complete (existing) list, add, change or delete an item. You can also start a new list

Start a new download list.


Merge an existing list into the current selected download list.

These are separate download lists because downloading one big list can take some time. If you want to combine two lists into one download list, you can use the ‘Start a new download list’ function, explained above.

First select a download list that you want to expand. By clicking the ‘Start a new download list’ button, a new window opens. In this window you can select a file (download list) that will be added to the download list. After a basic consistency check by QuoteStocker, the contents of the selected file will be merged into the selected download list.
