How to edit imported historical data

#1 Postby JJLL » Fri Aug 25, 2017 2:49 pm

I subscribe to FT's historical data download. Some of the tick data I would like to review and possibly clean/edit.

Can you please tell me what file path I can find the imported historical data? And is it possible to open the historical data in a spreadsheet, edit, save, then run through FT?

Thank You.

Tick data are stored in the C:\ForexTester3\data\History\<name of the pair> folder in the ticks.dat file.

But these .dat files can't be opened via any text or table redactor as far as I know.
