Renko/manual backtest/hybrid backtest

Because I am using Renko bars (RJay's RenkoSpectrum) I have been tediously using a spreadsheet to record every trade to backtest. Of course when I want to look at a different stop or target I have to start over again which is pretty involved considering I have maybe 1000 trades recorded. Is there any way to start with a series of manually indicated entries on the chart (due to the complexity of my rules and the Renko issues) and then use Ninja to test various stops and targets? I think there is some software that will do this but it's pretty pricey. Any thoughts welcome.
