Thanks: 54 given, 53 received

Attached is the sshot after I downloaded the 2 files and placed them in data - and checked the analysis - click on Range.. that brought up the spreadhsheet - the information showing was for CLF3 with the correct prices.

When I load the files onto the charts (800 tick and 8 range chart, the wick size is shown in dollar/cent versus 1 2 3 4; also the information is the price of TF's close for today.

What do I need to do to correct this?

Also when I go to close the spreadsheet it says
This spreadsheet cannot be closed so long a study still reference it. Do you want to remove the study that references this spreadsheet? Yes No --
Which do I choose? I have been selecting "no"

1) On each Text (Large) Display for Study study, set the Value Format to 1.
This will eliminate the decimal places and display only the integer.

2) This study will return a wick size of 0 on all chart types other than a range bar chart.

3) Do not close the spreadsheet. Minimize it because you don't need to interact with it. When you close the chartbook, the spreadsheet will close with it, after asking you if you want to save it.

4) Where is the 846.10 coming from? Is that supposed to be the wick length?
