Output Window Excel question

Is it possible to write a Ninjascript that lists all of the opening (8:30 central) prices of the ES, and then copy and paste the output window into excel?

Yes, that's pretty easy, just do sth along the lines of if(FirstBarOfSession && FirstTickOfBar) Print ("Date ; "+this.Date+" ; Price ; "+ Close); just writing some pseudo code from the top of my head here, but it should be reasonably close to the real stuff...

Ok-I'll put this in a strategy ninjascript, backtest the strategy, and it should run on the output window?

Ok I got it to work. Now, an excel question I have two "columns" in the output window - how do I paste them into two excel columns?

In other words I have the date and then the price printed on one line: 20121103 1428.25. Can I split this into two cells? Thanks.

It should work as an indicator too, to get it into excel import it as csv, it has got options where to split the lines.
