Printing TradeStation indicator values to file

Hey forum, My first question, so I hope I am asking it in the right forum. I am using a proprietary indicator that I bought in Tradestation 8.8. I like the results, but would like to "dumb" some of the data to excel for further analysis. When I do this in my own indicators I use a FileAppend function in easy language. As this indicator is "locked" with no access to the source code I am wondering if anyone has any advice as to how I might access it from one of my indicators. The values of the indicator are posted in the data window so there must be a way to get at that data? Any ideas would be most appreciated. Thanks!! RambleDog

You could try to get the indicator from the source written as a function and then reference the output in your own indicator which you could use the FileAppend

There might be a way to reference the output without converting it to a function....maybe someone else has some ideas.

I have a couple of questions.

1. Is this strictly a visual indicator, or do they give you information that allows you to program it into a strategy.
2. Is the name of the indicator value shown? For instance, have you tried writing an indicator or strategy that uses fileappend outputting the variable name of the object in the data window?

In all versions of TradeStation it is quite easy to get all the data from any chart, including indicator values.

Simply load the chart for the period of interest, add/plot the indicators of interest and then from view on the menu bar select data window. From the data window you can save all of the data on the chart into a comma delimited file which is easily imported into Excel or any other spreadsheet or database.

cheers

Done

Thanks for all the great replies. I went the Data Window Route and it worked great. I also found that the developer had already developed functions so it was a double win. Thanks
