I should have asked: are the Sector Indexes and constituents coming from a source I can look up externally? Like a Morningstar list or something? Similar for Industry Groups?

Thanks, Bruce. I assume this means there is no central list and/or a way to do this en masse, correct? I must manually copy each one?

Hello --

I understand there is no way to export price data from 17. However, is there a way to obtain simply the list names ("headers") and particpating symbols in each watchlist? If it's not a feature or kluge in 17, is there a webpage that has same?

Reason: I create calcuations using an exterior spreadsheet and need to do it on the same watchlists and scans that I have going on in v17.

Thank you very much.

Ok, I see now. Thanks again for the explanation.

17 cannot export data in the same way, correct? Unless I'm missing something?

"I'm not quite sure what the point of your initail question was."

I'm trying to map the watchlist names in 17 to the lists available in the Data Export feature in 7.

The initial aim was to find out if the names used for watchlists are the same. More specifically, I am referring to the "out of the box" names -- names like "Financial Services Sector" or "AMEX Composite Index" or "Technology Sector" as opposed to custom watchlist names.

I use exports of the price data from v7. I'm trying to map the watchlist names in 17 to the lists available in the Data Export feature in 7.

When you look at watchlists in 17, you can see names for sectors, like exampled above.

In the "Data Export to Text" feature in 7, you can see a section called "Hemscott Industry Groups". This seems to be an categorizing structure that seems slightly different from how watchlists in 17 are organized, but I'm not certain. For example, I'm not certain of where to find a "Technology Sector" list in 7 that is identicak to the watchlist of the same name in 17.

Thanks again.

Thank you for the answer. Respectfully, what is meant by "in general"? It would seem to imply that they are not the same.

Are the watchlist names in 17 the same as those used in 7?
