Alert Condition length

Hello,
I am trying to create an alert condition that references bars [-76] to [-53] so the alert condition is relatively long(a formula for each bar). When I enter the alert condition formula and press apply 80% of the formula condition disappears. Is there a limit on the amount of characters I can put into an alert condition? Thanks.

Yes there is. To overcome the limit you need to use the Spreadsheet System/Alert Study instead:

I'm trying to get the alerts by running a scan on an associated watch list. IS there a way to reference a range of offset data something along the lines of [-76]:[-53] instead of listing every bar from -76 to -53? Thanks.
