Yahoo Finance Excel – Data processing before importing

 

This step is optional; we do this to avoid the problem with the system separators. Our decimal separator is the “comma” and the Thousands separator is the “dot”.

The file that you downloaded from Yahoo Finance uses the “comma” to separate the single data and use the “dot” as a decimal separator.

Open the file SPY.csv and click on “Find & Select”

Now you write a “comma” in “Find What” and a “semicolon” in “Replace with” and click on “Replace All”
