Read the downloader help, you can easily conver the data for metastock, downloader simply takes the data & makes the MS files. Remember not to include any quotes any where.

Re: covert data from excel spreadsheet to metstcok format

Dear Members
What excel does is to craete a text file which the equis downloader converts into metastock. the spreadsheet I am uploading for your convenience. One can see the VB code in the spread sheet and use it it needs the bhavcopy (NSE to be kept in C:\eod directory and the processed txt file is created in C:\Bcopy directory. Once u have the Bhavcopy in C:\eod directory and run the program it makes the file in C:\Bcopy which can be read by equis downloader. Give it a try and let me know. Since I do not find a way to upload the ecel sheet I am copying the VBA here itself. U can simply copy this in your Macro and use it.
