Edit Download List

Editing the download list is done in the window below. If all download lists have been deleted, QuoteStocker will create a short default download list and the window below will open automatically. Please remember to backup your download lists regularly.

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

In the lower part of the window you will find two text fields, ‘Code’ and ‘Name’. You use these to modify an item or to add an item to the selected download list.


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

There are four ways to manage your download lists: add a complete (existing) list, add an item, change an item, or delete an item. You can also create a new list

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

First, select the download list you want to expand. Clicking the ‘Start a new download list’ button will open a new window. In this window you can select a file (download list) to 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.
