    If anyone can assist me I would appreciate it. I am not strong in the area of data formats/computing etc.

    I run Qcharts, and wish to export data into another charting program for analysis after hours.

    The other program accepts various data formats, the main ones I recognise are ASCII and Metastock.

    When I export data from Qcharts, it is saved as 'csv' and is in the form of an excel spreadsheet or text file. Can someone suggest how I can turn that into Metastock or ASCII format so my other program will recognise the file?

    I really have little/no clue with this stuff. :)

    The CSV files is an ASCII file. You can copy the file to another file name with the extension .txt, and then give it a try
  3. MS Downloader to convert this data into MS format.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    I have managed to get the program to recognise my data file. But when trying to make a chart there are errors and it won't work. However I am making progress!

    I will have a hunt around for the MS downloader and try metastock format and see if there are some improvements.
