After clicking on above mentioned menu item Price History Data Selection Dialog appears where you can specify the details of new database you want to use. But before that you may get a message saying that all views, i.e. charts, reports, etc., will be closed.

If you want to make Stockalyze use some other price history data then you need to supply the details of that database.

Stockalyze has built-in support to download FREE data from Yahoo!. To use this functionality select 'Stockalyze History Database' as 'Data Format' and provide a name of database file as 'Location' in Price History Data Selection Dialog then click OK. Stockalyze will download data from Yahoo on need basis and save the downloaded data into database you just provided so that only incremental data is downloaded next time for same security.

Stockalyze remembers what you had selected in last session and so when you close Stockalyze and start it again you will keep using the same database you had selected in last session.
