MetaStock (r) Command Line Data Conversion Utilities

#1
Hi anybody succesfully used this utility.
I am trying to use it get and update BSE data.
But i am not able to do so.
I am trying to convert "*.csv" files downloaded each day from bse-nse2005 yahoo group and convert it into EOD metastock files and than convert this to ascii to view it in some software.
What it does is not able tp create ticker and ticker name for each row in CSV.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Thx

Hi,
Command line utility offers more featuers than equis downloder/converter.But
it is somewhat difficult to use.
I request all members having programing ability,describe step by step procedure, as help file doesn't reveal much more for most of us.

Make sure you enter the 1st date. I used to extract data from there and it works like a charm. The data quality is questionable however.
Follow the instructions given by them. It usually comes through mail when you register.
