Historical stock quotes in excel


I have two columns. Column 1 is all tickers and column 2 are various dates from 2009, 2010, 2011, etc. and I have a 1000 rows of them

Is there a way I can grab the prices using some excel function in column 3 for corresponding ticker and dates. So, a function something like: =price(ticker,date)

I tried using google finance but the way they output the quotes makes it harder to do for 1000 rows.

You might consider consider coding this problem in C/C++ , it would be quite simple

Here you go.

I made this spreadsheet a few years back and if I recall correctly I got a good portion of the VBA code from online so props to the original creator.

There is a new provider of historical data since last August called Alpha Vantage.
I have managed to create an Excel Addin called Deriscope that retrieves data from that provider into Excel.
It is completely free. You can download it from Free Download Deriscope
