Automate loading of EOD data from getbhav onto Amibroker

#1
Hi Traderji members,

Has anyone managed to automate the EOD data downloading from Getbhav copy into Amibroker.

Currently using Getbhav EOD there are 2 steps:
1. Download the EOD data daily from Getbhav
2. Use the IMPORTASCII option in Amibroker to load data onto the screen.

These 2 steps needs to be done manually daily. (would save 5-10 mins daily if its automated). There has to be someone smarter than me who has figured a way to automate this than do it manually :). Can this be automated maybe using a windows scheduler or something else, your help would be appreciated ?

Thanks
Mathew.

It takes me 2-3 min to complete this task.Good idea to automate this but less critical and not a show stopper.

There is a software named AutoIT which you can use to automate any windows based activities including mouse based clicks

Converting to Metastock? Autoit? Forget about it.

If you download your data to a specific folder then all you need is few lines of code to create an OLE import script/exe that iterates through that ASCII file folder and a format file that is being pointed to in that script.

In addition or alternatively in the AmiBroker SDK there's a sample of an ASCII import plugin.

Now all you need to do is activate download&import via a proper task scheduler once a day (well, or multiple times a day).
