I was curious how to delete old contracts from showing up when i drop the menu down for the symbol. I have such a long list that it just becomes cumbersome. I can't seem to do it in the instrument manager, historic data manager, or going into the folder db - data since the folders aren't labeled by instrument.

Where precisely do you see those old contracts ?
maybe a screen shot can explain...

In the instrument manager you can with the left/right arrows,remove an instrument form the active list
but i guess, that's too simple of an answer, so i guess your question is more complicated

No, yeah you're right. For some reason I was thinking I had to click the delete button and that wasn't working. I had used the arrow that points left to add the contract, but hadn't realized the other arrow took them off the list. I also had feared that taking the instrument off the list would some how delete that data, but after testing it seems to show up.

I feel dumb asking the question, but you can imaging downloading data for a couple dozen contracts over the years makes it cumbersome.

How can it be done in NT8? I assume your answer concerns NT7?
Thanks

I thought it was as easy as going into Tools-->Instrument Lists and selecting the product/contract you want and hit remove.





It does remove it from the list, but not from the list of contracts in your chart (presumably it's in a cache).


Perhaps asking NT support will do the trick.
