Topic: problem data file "could not determine the number decimal seprator!"
Hi, hope someone might be able to suggest why this error is occurring.
I use FSB to test strategies for the Australian Share Price Index Futures Contract.
I generated the appropriate data file from a MT4 broker offering this Indice and FSB worked fine.
However when I tried to use a different data source I started getting the error message "could not determine the number decimal separator!" and the data file would not load.
I thought I would post the working and non working data file to assist others in suggesting what might be the problem, but the files were too large.
Interestingly this lead me to reduce the size of my working data file from approximately 49000 rows to 1000 rows and I was shocked to find that the data file no longer worked in FSB.
I used Microsoft Excel 2010 to edit the data file, then Notepad in case Excel was altering the format somehow.
I am at a loss as to why I am getting this error message.
Hoping someone might suggest a solution
thanks in advance
