Rollover in TS backtesting and MC autotrading

Hello all,

Is there a way (except for manually inputing the dates in a function) to get rollover dates for futures so you can easily backtest in Tradestation (TS) and replicate in autotrading in Multicharts (MC)? For instance, are there reserved words one can use in TS to get the expiration date (or rollover date if different from expiration) in TS, and may be automate rollover? and how can one move such information on expiration/rollover dates to MC?

Thank you
