I have tried your migration method (CtrlA - CtrlC) several times - when I paste in A1 all columns after AJ are incorrect

I tried just copying columns B - AJ (since this is the data I enter) and and pasting just to B - AJ they do not fill in correctly
I tried creating a CSV file, but lose the formatting
what am I doing wrong

I tried to migrate from 2.0.8 to the current version and everything worked out as intended.
Could you please tell me which version you are using at the moment, so I can try to reproduce the error?

well that is interesting
I am converting from V2.0.8 to V2.2
1. I copied my instruments list and methods list from V2.0.8 first so that they would be there for reference
2. I reset starting account to $25k
3. I did Ctrl A ctrl C on Journals tab and pasted in A1 of new version
4. I attached a screen print of A - AJ as you can see minutes columns are messed up
5. I see the first 22 rows are greyed out, but you can see the bottom rows have % and a green circle in minutes columns
6. looks like 3 columns are missing AF should be AJ

Would you mind sending me your journal via PM so I can track the error on my side?

Ok, just remember that from 0.7 you have to go column by column.

Well, theoretically the easy method should work from 0.8 onwards, and it does on my side. As long as it works it is definitely the safer way.

Anyways, it's quite easy to try and if it fails to do it column by column...
