  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive in our community.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendors advertising in posts.

Instrument List thing will be fixed in next version, coded it now, so I can't forget to protect it....
Also found a bug where screen is not updated, will solve that in a minute...

Perhaps just one tiny little issue:

The transactions don't get overwritten by the import from old journal. If there are none, I have to fix them manually.
Oh and btw, loading data from an old journal does not work on Mac. Could it be caused by the absence of generic windows win32 api constructs:-))) ? I don't know if anything can be done with it...

MS could have made excel multi-platform. As such it is only limping.


After using the importer, the new lines are accepted, but i get a following error report upon opening the result:

 
Code
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<recoveryLog xmlns="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/spreadsheetmal/2006/main"><logFileName>error036600_01.xml</logFileName><summary>Errors were detected in file 'Y:\Trading\testest.xlsm'</summary><removedRecords summary="Following is a list of removed records:"><removedRecord>Removed Records: Shared formula from /xl/worksheets/sheet5.xml part</removedRecord><removedRecord>Removed Records: Shared formula from /xl/worksheets/sheet14.xml part</removedRecord></removedRecords></recoveryLog>
Could it be some links issue????

I will set transactions to zero in that case.

I can't do anything about Mac compatibility as excel for Mac is afaik not vba compatible.

Could you trace the error down somewhat more precisely? Most things I could probably fix by vba...

Strange...never happened before, and I didn't change anything there...I'll check.
