Data Table

Each record of data appears sequentially as a row in the table beneath the heading area.

Data Fields (columns)

The data fields displayed will depend on the type of symbol.

For example an equity will have the following data fields: Date, Open, High, Low, Close, Volume, Bid, and Ask.

Futures will have all of these, and in addition have the Open Interest field.

It is listed and numbered sequentially from oldest at top to most recent at the bottom.

The Date of the data is displayed after the number, as are the data for each field.

You can directly edit the data in the table.

When the compression interval is set to Daily, the status indicator will display Read/Write and data in the table will be able to be directly edited. Select a data field with the cursor and type to edit.

Note - Proceed with caution, for any changes you make may permanently affect the pricing database.

Saving the Edit

Select the Save Data command from the Action Menu to save the changes you have made.

You must save the changes before you can display them in the chart, see next section.

The ability to edit the pricing data for a security is a useful one, but proceed with caution, for Your SOFTWARE uses this data for all its core functions, including charting, technical indicators and quotes. When you have finished, click Close to exit this window. If you made changes you do not wish to save, click No when requested. To save your changes select Yes.

Displaying the Edited Data

To display the changes in the chart, first save the edit (refer to previous section) and then select the Price Chart command from the Price Data page's Action Menu:

The chart page will open and the saved edits will be generated in the chart.

Note - To recover the original HUBB data for the table, perform a Custom Data Download from the symbol's chart page, this will overwrite the edits you made in the Price Data Table.

To print the Price Data page, select the Print command from the Price Data page's Action menu.

The Print dialog will allow you to select a printer and its set its properties, as well as to define the following print parameters:

  • Print All data
  • All data between one date and another. Type in the dates or use the calendar selection tool.
  • A range of pages. The total number of printed pages for the data table will be indicated.

You can also set the printer to print multiple copies.

For more information, go to the Printing help topic in the shared utilities section.

Copy to Clipboard

Select the Copy to Clipboard command (or use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+C) to copy the entire range of data in the current Price Data window to the Windows clipboard.

Range of Data

The compression Interval will determine the type and amount of data that will be copied. For example a Daily setting will copy data for each day, copying the data table with a Monthly interval setting will only copy price data summarized for each month.

Paste Copied Data

The data can be pasted into other applications such as Excel, Word, or other spreadsheet or word processing software using the Ctrl+P keyboard shortcut or the internal editing processes of the application.
