We need this functionality to be able to export data for multiple instruments together in one go in ascii format. Currently, this functionality is not available and its not practically possible to go and export data one-by-one for 500 or so symbols every night. Please consider implementing this feature as soon as possible for you guys. I think this is one of the functionalities that is sorely missing in Multicharts. It makes our lives very hard as users.
Having the ability to export out data from MC in ascii files is a highly useful functionality. This will allow us to easily use the collected data available in MC database, in any other application program like excel, R, Matlab etc. Also, we can put that data in our own custom database like Mysql.

Steps to reproduce this issue

Select 2 instruments together in QM and right click on them and go to export data -> ascii option is greyed out. However, if you select only 1 instrument, you can export it as ascii file.

Sorry, at the moment the feature is not scheduled for a particular version of MultiCharts.
