    Backtest export to Excel

    (NT8 Beta 3)

    PROBLEM 1
    The default name of exported Excel file is wrong:

    "NinjaTrader Grid 2015-07-26 12-33-13-"

    There is one additional additional "-" characted at the end.


    PROBLEM 2
    The default name of exported Excel is the same for each view "NinjaTrader Grid xxxx" = same name for exporting Summary, for Trades, for Orders.

    If you export fast enough with some click-automation tools, the files can have conflicting names and overwrite/block each other.

    The default names should be set up according to exported view with right prefix: Trades, Summary, Executions, and so on.. like this example: "
    • Trades 2015-07-26 23-56-13
    • Summary 2015-07-26 23-56-13


    You should use 24h format instead of 12 hours format (AM/PM) in the name of exported files.

    EXPORT ALL:
    Export all views/tabs into single excel, because now it is very complicated to export each view separately and merge them into one excel.

    This is the most common scenario - user wants to export results and send them somewhere. To do 10x manual export and merge all into one final excel is not practical.

    So ideally, there should be 2 options -
    • Export this tab
    • Export all


    Export dialog does not remember last folder and does not have common OS folders like Desktop
    90% of users wants to export to the Desktop, and this dialog does not provide such option. It also does not remember the last used folder - so everytime user has to set up right folder again and again. Very annoying dialog.

    Hmmm, I'm not sure about your 90% claim to desktop - but remembering last export folder is a definite plus (assuming the drive/SD card is there). I hate having to put something where I last put it and finding it again.

      Hi Sledge,
      I agree with you - it would be better to say, that
      the dialog should remember at least the last chosen directory.
