Changing Option Ticker Symbols

 
To change all option ticker symbols to TradeLog standardized option format:
 
"MSFT 14DEC12 15 CALL"
 
Click Edit, Change Option Tickers (Ctrl + F3 keyboard shortcut).
 
TradeLog will first try to find the appropriate underlying stock ticker, expiration month and year, and strike price for the particular option ticker symbol if you are connected to the Internet. If no Internet connection is found TradeLog will do its best to convert these manually. You may have to change the underlying stock ticker or strike price after TradeLog converts it so it matches the actual option that you traded.
 
A popup dialog box will allow you to verify the new option symbol format and make any changes if necessary.
