Historical data comes with its own software so you can mange the formats, directories and amount of History to load.
MAKING DATA SELECTIONS
If you are a BodhiGold user you do not have to make a selection as Bodhi History will read your configuration files and only load the data you have selected into the formats and directories you specified. Simply choose "Yes" when you are asked to use your BodhiGold settings.
In the Bodhi History CD-ROM/USB, under the Finance tab, is a list of historical data products grouped by regions (i.e. Australia). By using the mouse to double-click on these regions, the selection is broken down into exchanges (i.e. Australian Securities Exchange). Double-click again on an exchange and the market groups (i.e. Equities, Indices etc.) available from that exchange are displayed. When you double-click on a market group you are taken to the entire list of symbols available from that Exchange.
Once inside the product groups you can choose to:
Process individual securities, by placing a tick in the corresponding box.
Process the Top 150 ASX Equities, by selecting the Top150 option from the Bundle box.

What you process is controlled by what is selected in the Product Lists. If you require expired securities, current future contracts and/or derived products you can select them from their appropriate product list. This is done by making selections from the View menu in each product list.
