The databases are in .csv or .txt
In which format you want to save data, I mean ami or meta.
If possible, then post first few lines of three databases.

I did not understand !!! Intraday from 2006 to 2011 and then from 2011 to 2012? What about 2013? Even if it is a 1 min tick, it is 375*220*5, you are looking at 4 lac quotes per scrip. How many scrips do you have?

I have a utility app that converts Metastock into text and I did see (on this site) someone posting ami afl that converts ami data into text.

If database is already in Ami, what source file is in metastock? Do you mean that you originally received data in Metastock format but because you attached Ami to it, it made a local copy?

If that is the scenario, you cannot do a lot except perhaps deleting old unwanted scrips from metastock format and ami.

Metastock has .DAT as well as .MWD files with MASTER EMASTER and XMASTER that provide the folder's dictionary
