  BodhiGold Users

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.

If you have chosen not to use your BodhiGold settings you may need to change the default directories. You will also need to make a selection from the Bodhi History menu.

By default Bodhi History processes its information to the following directories.

Formats Directories
Almanac c:\Data\Almanac\%Source%
AsciiCsv c:\Data\AsciiCsv\%Source%
BodhiOne c:\Data\BodhiOne\%Source%\Options
c:\Data\BodhiOne\%Source%\Stocks
EzyStation (EZY) c:\Data\EZY\%Source%
EzyChart (PCE) c:\Data\EzyChart\%Source%
Market Analyst c:\Data\Market Analyst\%Source%
MetaStock c:\Data\MetaStock\%Source%
UltraEzy c:\Data\UltraEzy\%Source%

You only need to change these directories if you have installed your Charting Package to either a different disk drive (i.e. d: instead of c:) or you want your data going to a different directory (i.e. c:\ms\data).

PLEASE NOTE: If you are a subscriber of our BodhiGold software, you must choose the same directory structure or the data files will not update.
