Importing Metastock Historical Data into NT7


I've recently obtained End of Day data for the National Stock Exchange in Metastock format.

There are over 1700 + counters that are currently traded there.

How do I create multiple symbols in the Instrument Database so that I can obtain the data inside NinjaTrader platform.
Doing it manually for so many symbols is indeed painful. Is there a shortcut or a workaround to this?

The Ninjatrader documentation is albeit sketchy on this part. It talks more in detail about ASCII import formats, but having the entire database in Metastock should make things easier IMHO.
