    Hello Renu,

    How do I enable the Advanced GET End of Day program to read Metastock 8.0 and 9.0 data files?
    Please follow these steps:

    1. Call (801) 265-9998 or email ( Equis Technical Support and request the following DLL's be emailed to you: MSFL651.DLL, MSFL70.DLL, and MSFL72.DLL if you have Metastock 8.0. If you have Metastock 9.0, you will also need MSFL80.DLL.
    2. When you receive the files, save or copy the files into the System32 folder located in the Windows or WINNT folder.
    3. Start Advanced GET and click on File, then Data Paths.
    4. In the Data Paths window, click the Add button, select the MetaStock File Library and then click OK.
    5. Highlight the Metastock File Library selection and click the Properties button.
    6. Verify that the path to the Metastock data directory is correct.
    7. Check the Futures, Stocks and Indexes boxes (they must all be checked).
    8. Click OK and then click OK in the Data Paths window.
    9. GET will scan the Data Path and you should now be able to access the data

        Which version of the Metastock downloader are you using?

        What data format, and which version is the downloaded saving the data in?

        GET EOD will only support up to version 8.

        If you can save the data in ASCII format, GET can read most all ASCII formates.

              Try looking at the data with a ASCII data path in GET.
