Merging ASCII with Realtime Data without date gap


Im using the first time MC (8.0).

My question: how can I merge historical ASCII Mapping-Data (data from
MCD up to 1 March 2013) with Realtime-data (from IB), starting today
(12 April 2013), without the gap between the 2 dates?

After merging, I don't find the way to close the gap in the chart.
Do I have really first complete the ASCII-Data with the missing dates,
before merging with the Realtime-data?

Thanks in advance,

Here is the answer:

That means, all historiacal data before the date of starting Realtime must be in the ASCII-Mapping file.
Or with other works: Realtime data doesn't close gaps between historical ASCII-data and and date of starting Realtime.
