Dear ASF users,
I am trying to clean up the securites data on my Metastock Version11. When I run my Explorer it picks up securites that do not exist today. There are many securities which over the past few years have changed names, gone belly up or have been given temporary codes that are no more. Although my data provider gives me clean current data, these annoying securites are still part of my Metasock data files.
I have been working in the downloader to achieve this. I could manually go through the 6000 or so securities and delete the defunked codes one by one but there must be a better way.
In the downloader there is a patch you can download which is called "Update Symbol Database" which I thought would be the answer to my problem. However after I had done this the unwanted securities from my data set were still their..
If anyone has had this problem and may have overcome this please could you let us know.
