In the data downloader; use FILE-IMPORT-ASCII; select the csv file you want to import; then choose FIELD ORDER--FIRST LINE OF DATA FILE; then find security file you want to import to etc. I have done it this way.

: : Hi: I tried exporting data so Tradestation 4 could read it.
: : I used the Supercharts format for this (which should be the same).
: : Column 1 in Fund Manager is the fund symbol with header called "other".
: : I have never used Tradestation with the symbol in the file. The help file for Tradestation says you can use what is called a "DOP" file. It is supposed to ignore the "other" header so it can display the data. I tried this, and it does not work with my version of Tradestation 4. Does anybody have a clue as to how to read this data in Tradestation. In Fund Manager I used Yahoo's adjusted historical data. Maybe there is a Omega patch for this. Or, maybe the Y2k fix for Tradestation messed up the "DOP" file formatting.
: : Help!!!

: : Thanks!

: Hi Jack,
: I don't know the answer to this. You might check with the Tradestation
: folks.

: Thanks,
