I have data in ASCII comma-delimited (csv format) downloaded from Yahoo Finance or other sources.
To be able to work with some programs I convert them into Metastock format, then open The Downloader, I click on convert, I select the ASCII file of input and output directory and ... I do not get that error and no conversion.
The errors are:

Warning # 810: No data from source files converted
Error # 814: Invalid source file format

I also have some csv file that I have converted without problems.
I do not know what to think about: the size is right, character by character looking at a file that is converted with Notepad and the other seems to have exact the same format...

I hope someone can help me.

It might help to see the first few rows of data that you're trying to convert. The headers definitely need to be included in the proper format for an ASCII conversion, such as:


Not all fields are required, but that is the general format that you should see in Notepad.
