Loading TC2000 Ver 3 data format

Insider TA Professional reads from the legacy TC2000 ver 4.x/5.x database automatically.  The following discussion is for those who still use Insider TA Version 4 Professional (upgrade here).

TC2000 ver 3 data files are named with a ".NDX" file extension.  Like any disk file, they can reside anywhere in your computer's drive and can be directly loaded into Insider TA Version 4 Pro and Version 5.1 Professional automatically.

Typically, you might find all your NDX files divided into 26 sub-directories (this is the way TC2000 exports it's version 5.x data to version 3 files), where each sub-directory represents a letter in the alphabet.

You can use the File Entry Panel to store these 26 directories...

  • c:\TCV3Data\A\*.NDX
  • c:\TCV3Data\B\*.NDX
  • c:\TCV3Data\C\*.NDX

  •    : 
  • c:\TCV3Data\X\*.NDX
  • c:\TCV3Data\Y\*.NDX
  • c:\TCV3Data\Z\*.NDX 
  • Observe in the following picture how Insider TA displays the filenames in the File Entry Panel (e.g. RAL.NDX, ROK.NDX, RTN.NDX), and will not display the full name of the company until after a file is loaded.

    • In the Insider TA Users Manual, the above discussion is similar to what is outlined on page 9-5.
    • Insider TA's File Entry Panel's Path Menu is discussed on page 9-2 of the Users Manual.
