HICTrader,

this depends a bit on the charts you are using, but on time based charts something like this will work fine:
You will have to monitor the bar time in your code and if Time = 830 you would store the Open in your variable.

@HICTrader here is a video that may help in solving your issue, or show you where you may find the answer you are looking for.
From the beginning he explains very well how he goes about developing his Strategy in the Wizard, and then actually Shows you how to change the Code, Check for issues, and where to go to help you with writing out your code.
At the 35:00 minute area he talks about "Time" also where to look for "Open" information that may help you with how to write out the code how you need it, so as it will perform how you need it to in your Strategy.
The First 40 minutes is very Good as showing Good Practice Technics to getting Started, as well as helping Solve issues in your Code.
Hope this could help you.

sandptrader,

the good practice part is surely useful, but the actual code might not work for @HICTrader as it appears that he is using Multicharts as platform.

If you're using EL multicharts, wouldn't something simple work like this:

 
Code
variables:  sopen ( 0 ) ;

if time = 0830 then begin sopen = Open ; end ;

if AtCommentaryBar then begin CommentaryCl( " sopen : ",  sopen ) ; end ;

I suppose one could argue whether open or close makes sense with a +/- factor depending on your X axis and what style of bars you are utilizing.
