I need to export my scan results to excel. I like the ability to manipulate my scan results with the other data that I get. It is just taking too long to keep entering all my scan results manually. I tried "snag it" & "snipping tool" but it will not export data into individual cells. I know "Finviz" & "Tradestation" allows this feature but I prefer Omnitrader for coding reasons. Omnitrader just seems more beginner code friendly than Tradestation for me. If anyone has been able to export scan results into excel any info would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Brian

If all you want is the list of symbols, then use click and shift-click to highlight all symbols in list then Ctrl+C, then open Notepad and Ctrl+V

If you are trying to export all the data columns in the focus list as editable text you are out of luck UNLESS you own Snagit version 9 or earlier ... up until v10, SnagIt provided an option to capture "as text" ... if you have a version with that option, then use it. It's sometimes sort of picky re selecting a scrolling user-spec'd window but it does work.

Renewed request to Nirvana ... please provide some kind of export option for the full current complement of Focus Lists.

I was looking at gathering multiple data not just the symbols from my scan results.

Come on Omnitrader give us this function. Other software has it. Please. Lol...

Get Snagit as mentioned earlier. It's the most valuable Windows utility I know of ... incredibly versatile, and only $50 (unless they raised price recently).

This output has been requested multiple times for years. Apparently it's a pain to do since we haven't gotten it yet. So, don't hold your breath.
