It looks like another bug in FileReadArray (sigh!). I've just verified on build 604 it is still a bug.

You should report to service desk (need to create mql5 login) and in the mean time use arr[i][j]=FileReadString(handle) in a loop!

MQ don't seem to have any kind of extensive test suite in place for this new MQL4/5 language? A little disconcerting for developers!

Has anyone heard anything about fixes on this bug?

I'm on 610 and it is still only reading 12 chars per line and it is driving me up the wall! I really want to stick with FileReadArray because it is way faster than using FileReadString in a loop.

(Totally agree with ydrol! Seriously... Have the MQ developers ever heard of something called unit testing? Ironically I noticed this issue because their bug is currently breaking my own unit tests!!!)
