Backfill should normally work correctly, with 3-4 weeks worth of tick data and a couple of monts of minute data.

Have you checked the QuoteManager settings? (Go in the QuoteManager to Tools -> DataSources, and make sure your MBTrading connection has the right password and username).

Also, have you checked the box "Download historical data"? (Go in the MultiCharts main window to File -> Preferences and then tab Data Server Mode).

What i can't seem to find anywhere is the futures coding format. The FX works fine through MB, but I can't get the futures to load.
