I assembled a CSV file with S&P500 Future 20 ticks chart data (copy/paste) but the Downloader Console (in MS XV) doesn't find my CSV file. I don't know what is the problem.

When I browse the Downloader Console to the data folder no files are shown.

My file is CSV format like below:

Date,Time,Open,High,Low,Close,Volume 10/11/2017,14:18,2580.75,2580.75,2580.5,2580.5,219 10/11/2017,14:18,2580.5,2580.5,2580.25,2580.5,122 10/11/2017,14:19,2580.5,2580.5,2580.25,2580.5,84 10/11/2017,14:19,2580.25,2580.5,2580.25,2580.5,201 10/11/2017,14:19,2580.5,2580.5,2580.5,2580.5,194 10/11/2017,14:19,2580.5,2580.75,2580.5,2580.75,132 10/11/2017,14:19,2580.5,2580.5,2580.5,2580.5,227 10/11/2017,14:19,2580.5,2580.5,2580.25,2580.5,248

The following format should work:

Code:
Date,Time,Close,Volume
10/11/2017,14:18:01,2580.75,219
10/11/2017,14:18:02,2580.5,122
10/11/2017,14:19:01,2580.5,84
10/11/2017,14:19:02,2580.25,201
10/11/2017,14:19:03,2580.5,194
10/11/2017,14:19:04,2580.75,132
10/11/2017,14:19:05,2580.5,227
10/11/2017,14:19:06,2580.5,248

Tick count is not required but I added on just as an example. The main issue is that a tick can only have a Close price, having an Open, High, Low defined prevents MetaStock from identifying the data as tick.
