: Hi,

: Prices in the Greek stock market have changed (as of today) from Drachmas to Euros. Is there a way to convert all historical data, using a fixed exchange rate, so that I can keep updating the investment files and not lose the history?

: Thanks

Hi Agis,
Do you have the same number of shares, or did it scale? If it scaled with
the ratio of the price, you can use a split. Otherwise, you could use
one of the currency settings to adjust your historical data versus new
prices. The exchange rate would be different as of today. You would need
to create/assign an exchange rate investment. The other option is to export
your prices, multiply them in Excel or something, and then re-import them.
