In the MS Downloader for version 8.01 on my XP pc, I manually created and manually update a limited number of data files to follow Nelson Freeburg systems.  I would like to move that operation to my Windows 10 laptop which has MetaStock XV.   Does the Metastock XV downloader allow for manual creation and updating of data files?

Thanks for any help.

Hi,

There is a newer data format that goes along with MetaStock / DownLoader 15 (MSLocal). When you add a folder to the new DownLoader, you can then right-click on this folder and choose Create New Security to start the process.

"When you add a folder to the new DownLoader, you can then right-click on this folder and choose Create New Security to start the process".

I created a folder and security with the above process and invented a symbol, but by right-clicking the security I couldn't view security data or determine a way to manually enter any data.  It appeared as though downloading the data was my only option, but in this case I wanted to manually enter the data records and data.  How can I do that?

Thanks,

Brian

Hi again,

There is no Data Sheet editing within DownLoader, a Convert would be needed to bring in data this way. You would basically enter the data into a CSV format, then in DownLoader set the page to Convert and choose the Source Type CSV and the Destination MSLocal.

Have been using Metastock versions since 1996 and manually editing data in Downloader (AMONG MANY FEATURES PROFESSIONAL TRADERS NEED AND NOW GONE IN XV ... GRRR !!!) has been an important tool .. Sorry but Metastock XV has DUMBED DOWN our charting experience for no discernable reason ... YOUR LOSS AND MY LOSS !!!

Hi, Enhanced data sheet functionality (in the new DownLoader) is something we are looking into. If this is a significant loss of functionality one thing you might want to consider is using the Legacy or CSV formats in the meantime.
