Hello,
I have EOD data with tickers. I scan them o daily basis so i get 10-20 stocks to check. I want to create "Watchlist" from my scan so i can check charts in sierrachart.
Is is possible to create "text" file witch i will past into sierrachat folder so sierra will interpret it as a watchlist so i can check chart in platform?

Best Regards

Yes, you can do this. Refer to the following information on the Associated Watchlist and note the subsection for "Importing a list of Symbols" within it:

Thank you. I wam looking further into this and still cannot work with this.

I will show my steps:
I download historical EOD data for stock AIRWAY in TXT file and file is in Sierrachart/DATA folder.
I create watchlist test.SymbolList. Inside file is only string
AIRWAY
I put this file in DATA FOLDER
I import list from associated watchlist
I mark field "Watch List mode"
I click on text "AIRWAY"
I got msg "Invalid symbol name"
I noticed that in DATA folder has been creted file AIRWAY.dly

How can I "direct" symbol name to TXT file?

You need to save your own historical daily data with a dly extension. Do not use TXT. Refer to:
