Unable to import data for new pairs

#1 Postby nutmg12 » Sat Mar 18, 2017 9:13 am

Hello,
I am trying to import data from http://www.histdata.com/download-free-f ... bar-quotes for currency pairs not offered in Forex Tester 3. I have tried several ways but cannot get the import to work. When I click on import the data appears to be importing but then I get a window that says "No data found to import. I attached a picture of Forex Tester 3.

Thanks for your help.




I have tried a .txt file

Hello,

I' downloaded this file:
http://www.histdata.com/download-free-f ... urusd/2016

Then imported .csv file into the program and the import worked properly.
I didn't even change anything.

Here is the screenshot of the import window:

Please try to add a .csv file into the program without changing it, this should help.

Thank you,
I had the data stored on a thumb drive. I saved it to my hard drive and it worked.
