still getting this after 30 trades have been entered.. to note i dont include these in my journal if that matters:

Well, it shouldn't matter.
The strange thing is, that I don't get that error anymore, not even with the empty journal....checked on 2 machines...

just to be sure I attached it again...

ok ill try that one.. i also run it through a 'time test' where i just leave the journal open for awhile and see if any error pop up.. allot of time i dont see errors pop up by just flipping through the journal and close it, but if i leave it open for awhile things seem to pop up..

dont believe anything you hear and only half of what you see

Beta 15

Changed some minor things, mainly to make migration easier:

Migrating from any version:
1.do not unprotect the new journal tab
2. copy paste at will (of course with the limitation of point 1)
3. on overview tab click repair format button



vvhg View Post
So the easiest method would be to just reapply the correct formatting.

Actually, perhaps I could do that automatically via VBA.....

vvhg

Done:

Add a line between days on journal tab (via conditional formatting).

Deleted the line via conditional formatting. This is done via vba now as the conditional formatting was causing the journal tab to flicker like hell when inserting data.

I have already some code prepared for reading the existing journal. I hope I will have time during the weekend to include a migration tool into the importer.

I'll release a new version then.

perhaps the migration tool would be easier done within excel? I think I've got a pretty good idea how it could be done.

this is where we should prolly have this discussion from my previous post before we go to far?


madLyfe View Post
well the reason i said that could be a way to do it is because i can see where this could go allot further than expected and we would go from an importer -> excel based journal to a full .net journal that brings in exported data(or data right from a few trading softwares own db's) into our own db.. just looking at the natural progression of the way ive seen software projects go.. good or bad, we should prolly draw some lines in the sand for the short term and long term?

we could also get our initial goal met and have a side discussion of where this should go? how do you guys feel? im personally open to anything and offer my time up for ideas, testing, etc as you already know..
