Import indicator from .txt

Hi all, i need to import one indicator from external txt, someone know is should be possible?

to test it i have created one export that can be applied to any chart to export a simple ATR indicator:
	ATRLength( 14 ),
	AlertLength( 14 ) ;

	var0( 0 ) ;

var0 = AvgTrueRange( ATRLength ) ;

Plot1( var0, "ATR" ) ; 

condition1 = HighestBar( var0, AlertLength ) = 0 ;
if condition1 then
	Alert( "Indicator at high" ) 
condition1 = LowestBar( var0, AlertLength ) = 0 ;
if condition1 then
	Alert( "Indicator at low" ) ;
Print (File("C:\Temp\mytextfile.txt"),Numtostr( var0 , 4));

after that i create one import code, to test if the results was the same:

var: MyATR (0),listid(0);


 value1 = Listn.Readfile(listid,"C:\Temp\mytextfile.txt");     
  Value2 = Listn.Get(Listid,barnumber);
 Print("ATR = ", Listn.Get(ListID, barnumber), " ", barnumber);

//Plot1(Lists.Get(ListID, barnumber), "ATR",Blue);
(plot is with comment to test print before)

i got no error from that code, but MC print just half of line correctly and after stop and put the indicator off.

someone should know why?

thank you so much.

did you use the same chart for your export and import? You also need to make sure that the "Max number of bars study will reference" is exactly the same. Otherwise your barnumber variable will have different values on the same bar.
