that's helpful, but i'm trying to import data from ASCII and there's no field called open interest in quote manager for me to import it. this is my question.

actually the volume data is not imported in quote manager as well.
I attached a picture for you,
I did choose field "Volume" when I import from ASCII. but when I edit data, volume is not there, it's taken as TotalVol and UnchVol

1. What symbol do you want to plot?
2. For some reason you can plot OI from daily data in MC, but not from tick or second or minute data.
