At 28:30 into the PowerTour video, Ed mentioned the expanded Export feature. It now will export all the FocusList data to an *.xls file, and keep appending.

I see several problems with this feature:

1. The export file has the wrong extension. The content of the file is HTML markup, and so it would be more correct to use the *.html extension, rather than *.xls.

2. The signal icons are not exported. Instead, this character " " is exported instead of an appropriate icon symbol (or if icons are not possible, then a numeric equivalent/analog). This comment applies to the Pos, Signal and Strategy Signal (e.g. AC1, ACT, etc.) columns.

3. A date+time stamp is absolutely required for each new export added to the file. Without that, the fact that multiple exports will be accumulated in one file is useless. Alternatively, create a separate (timestamped) file for each export.

I totally agree on #1 & #3, we just didn't have time to improve on this feature. #2 is a little more involved as it affects every graphical column. I'm hoping we can improve that too.

Barry,
Without some indication of what type of signal exists, the export is useless. At the moment, all that is being exported ia a space " ". In my opinion, that makes the export useless. All I have is a list of symbols without any idea what type of signal exists. If a graphic icon can't be exported, then convert it to an equivalent number, e.g. 1=forming buy, 2=forming sell, 3=confirmed buy, etc.

It isn't useful for people looking to export signals, true, but it does provide all columns that contain values, including indicator columns.
