displaying and calculating method of ZB(1/32)

Postby mt9672 » 11 Feb 2012

Sirs.

I have a ascii data file(.txt) of symbol ZB(see pic1).
and this file has " ' " which means 1/32 digits.
As you know, ZB has 1/32 digit(not decimal system, see specs on pic2).

I imported data, but
1) MC chart can not display 1/32 digit(see pic3), and
2) Strategy Report can not calculate profits and losses properly(see pic4).

Is there any method of fixing this problem?
I have tried to change specification eg. Bigpointvalue, but failed.
Should I change the ascii data or get a new one?

Thank you.
Regards.

you have to change the ascii data file to decimal before importing or mapping.

The 1/32 is only a display. Behind the scene the computer is still working/calculating in the decimal system.
