Hey I was researching something and realized that I  would want to export all the settings in the market watch window to a CSV file for a given server platform.

When you go to Market Watch window and Right Click on an instrument, and press specifications it brings up a small window with information from your broker.

I haven't found anything looking around, but is there a way to export this to a CSV?

I wanted to compare and update it rather than manually have to go through every instrument.

If there isn't I would be willing to work together with some people on google drive to assemble something we could all work on together let me know! =)

I know csv-file could be written differently - but this has become my habit.

Compile the script and run it?  There does not seem to be any output in the data folder.

Where do you put PipFind.csv ??  You have to make that correct?

would it work for .xslx?

I ran the script but it wouldn't run again, couldn't find any files... :-\

I wonder if this data is even possible to export or how you would get the script/program to read it?

The csv file is in the \Common\Files folder.

Put your cursor above FileOpen( and press F1. There you can read everything you need!

First compile it then e.g. just press F5 and run the file in debug-mode.

1) the delimiter is the tab: "\t" - if you want to change that replace "\t" b y e.g. ";"

2) I saw there are two items too less:

Line = StringFormat(
         "%s\t%s\t%s\t%s\t%s\t%s\t%s\t%0.7f\t%s\t%s\t%s\t%i\t%s\t%s\n",

replace this line with the one in the code - sorry.

I was thinking you load the csv-file in an office program there you would have seen the delimiter.

The first line contains the head of each column - open it in a officer program you should see that.
