When you say:

One way would be to get needed data from those sheets and delete them but I think it is not the smartest way.

You mean you want all the data in sheet input ?
MSFT      1/1/2015      2/1/2015
should be 1 row only for this date range the
Open Price      Highest High      Lowest Low      Close Price

or it should be for every day during this period ?

Can you simply give us the real figures for these
MSFT      1/1/2015      2/1/2015
IBM              1/1/2015      2/1/2015
GOOG      1/1/2015      2/1/2015
GE              1/1/2015      2/1/2015

so we know how to go about doing the calculations ?

What I need are Open Price, Highest High, Lowest Low, Close Price of specified date range for each Ticker.

I need to fill "yellow square" with data.
For example row for MSFT should look like:
Ticker      Start      End      Open Price      Highest High      Lowest Low      Close Price
MSFT      1/1/2015      2/1/2015      46.66      47.91      40.35      40.40

I forgot to mention that I need it to work in MS Excel 2003.
