Using the datatable in the nesttrader how can we import those datas in the Amibroker so that the charts get back fillied?

Just tried doing but got some errors. Here is how i tried:-

  1. Opened the datatable from Nesttrader. Copied all the data to an excel sheet.

  2. Then defined the names of each column starting from Date & Time, Open, High, Low, Close and Volume which are in the datatable in Nesttrader.

  3. Then in the Import Wizard in the Amibroker selected the file were the data is lying. Then once i click the finish button i get the following errror whiich is displayed below

Logging started for ‘D:\imp files\NFBF.xlsx’ file, using format definition file 'Formats\wizard.format’
Error in line PKInvalid (close) price. Prices must be positive. If you want to import no quotation data please specify $NOQUOTES 1 (‘no quotation data’ box in Wizard)
Invalid date format/value
Ticker symbol is empty (unknown)

Please help me how this can be solved

Can you try to save the excel as csv and import in Ami. Also while using the import wizard , did you assign the correct columns to ticker, o,h,l,c etc?

Hi, amibroker import wizard doesn’t accept date and time combined in one column. U have to split date and time seperate. Another u have to format date and time to text format in csv. If u want some easy method try this. I just made this for my amibroker data base. Export datatable from nest to some folder in csv format.

Download the app from the below link and run it as an administrator.

set amibroker path and database path and enable Auto update amibroker database in settings.
