Exporting TC2000 4.x/5.x data to the v3 data format

Insider TA Professional reads from the legacy TC2000 ver 4.x/5.x data files automatically.  The following discussion is for those who still use Insider TA Version 4 Professional (upgrade here).
  1. In TC2000 ver 4.x/5.x, click Databank | Smart Export to TC2000 ver 3.

  3. After the Database Export to TC2000 Ver 3 window appears, select the watchlist to export ("Dow Jones 30 Industrial Component Stocks" is shown here).

  5. Enter the path where you want the files exported to.  The default destination (C:\TCV3Data) is suitable.

  7. Using the slide tab, select the number of days to export (750 is suitable for InsiderTA).

  9. Put a check mark in the box labeled "Automatically run following databank updates" box.
  10. Click the Smart Export button.

If you get a RUNTIME 91 or RUNTIME 440 error when exporting, Worden recommends you try changing the contents of the Data Files Path to a new directory. The export utility will create the new directory for you. Then click the Smart Export button again.

The above steps will produce TC2000 data in the ver 3 format (that is, data will be stored in single-lettered subdirectories beneath the selected Data Files Path). Assuming you used the above example and chose the Data Files Path to be c:\TCV3Data\. Then...

  • all symbols beginning with the letter "A" would reside in c:\TCV3Data\A\
  • all symbols beginning with the letter "B" would reside in c:\TCV3Data\B\
  • all symbols beginning with the letter "C" would reside in c:\TCV3Data\C\
  • and so forth, all the way to the letter "Z"...
You can store each of these path specifications into Insider TA's File Entry Panel's Path Menu, specifically...
  • c:\TCV3Data\A\*.NDX
  • c:\TCV3Data\B\*.NDX
  • c:\TCV3Data\C\*.NDX
  • and so forth, all the way to c:\TCV3Data\Z\*.NDX
