Fund analyzing tool

Is there a web site or software that can be purchased to run numbers for indexes that you input to analyze outcomes during certain periods for different indexes or rather group of indexes you input. I know I can go on certain web sites like Yahoo and look at one index at a time and go back in history pretty far to see what happened during specific time periods. But that is very labor intensive when you want to make side by side comparisons of several different ones.

I know on Vanguard you can input up to 5 indexes at a time and it will give you information comparing those indexes for up to 10 years.

Is there anywhere where that can perform the calculations similar to what Vanguards site does, but can go further back, and also where you can insert the time frame you want to look at for various indexes.

Does Morningstar have such a function if you join? Not sure I want to spend $189 to join for a year though. I have read posts from some of you referring to something that you are using and really like, but never looked further at the time to see what it was you were talking about. Started with the letter O (I think ) Tried to find posts, but no luck.

Thank you LOL. I did check it out. Looks promising, but have not had time to play with it yet.

What I was looking for was the ability to go back further in time, like 30 years or so.
