Updating data witin a project

#1 Postby Yellowbeard » Sat May 27, 2017 3:47 pm

Is there a way to update the data, of a current project, ( to the current date ) without having to start a new project? When I update the data of a pair to the current date, the new data doesn't show up in the current project. Even if I open the settings.data file, with the program closed and change the ending date; then save.

Please open the Data Center window, download newer data via the “Update from server” button.
Then open the Forex Tester 3 folder, go to the “Projects” folder and open the folder with the name of your project.

Then open the settings.dat file with hep of the Notepad and change the date in the ToDate field.
Save the file.

Then go to File -> Open Project menu, select this project and the project will be loaded and you cant test it till this new date.

I hope this option will work for you.

And please create new projects to the later date (for example, till 2020 year), in this case you can always download newer data and test them in the current project.
