You would have to change the formatting of every cell holding $ formattimg, including some hidden sheet, then you would have to change some formatting strings in the code. It's all not too difficult but it would probably take you a long time and I doubt it is worth the time spent.

Thanks: 501 given,
I have read post #2, and there is absolutely no explanation of how to import from one version to the next. It points one to an importer, and that is only for importing data from NT (by the way I get error messages from it it seems useless for me - have posted this error sometime ago in the thread but no response).
I have now used the "import old journal" on the Overview sheet, it does import the info, but it also import the BUG from version 4.1 that you corrected in ver 4.3 (the "Max MAE to display ticks").

Sorry, you are right, there was no description in post #2. I added there that it is in fact the import old journal button.
As to the importer, I can't really help there as it is by @petrmac who doesn't seem to be around too regularly...
The bug shouldn't get imported, I will have a closer look hopefully sometime today or tomorrow ...

Thanks for the advice, sorry for only getting a chance to reply now. I still cant figure out a way to do this (maybe I didn't explain the problem properly?). The issue lies in the fact that on my trade stats sheet, each line represents an individual trade. It is simple enough to add a column to indicate the drawdown, but then when I try create a chart off of that column, it doesn't summarise daily but instead charts every line item. I dont care if I had an intraday drawdown, what I care about is whether or not I was in a drawdown at the end of the day.
For example if I have 3 trades today with the 1st one being a loss of $100, then the next two having a profit of $200 each. At the end of the day there was no drawdown and I was positive $300. When I chart the drawdown chart it will show that todays drawdown was -$100 (ie: from the 1st trade of the day). But that is not corrrect because by the end of the day that drawdown no longer exists.
I have attached a spreadsheet to try and illustrate the issue.
Thanks for your time on this, I appreciate it.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.
Need help? 1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first. 2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses. 3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make. 4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance. 5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers. 6) Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.
