Cutting, Copying and Pasting Trades

 
Using the Windows clipboard, TradeLog enables the user to cut or copy multiple trade records from one data file and paste them into another data file or MS Windows program such as Excel, Word, etc.
 
To cut and paste trades into a data file or another Windows program:
 
  • Select the trade record(s) to be cut.  See Selecting a Single Trade for Editing or Selecting Multiple Trades.
     
  • To cut the selected trade records to the Windows clipboard, click Edit, Cut Selected Records or the shortcut key combination Ctrl + X
     
  • To paste the trade records into another data file, open the data file and click Edit, Paste Records or the shortcut key combination Ctrl + V
     
  • To paste the trade records into a Windows program, open the Windows program, create a new file and click Edit, Paste Records or the shortcut key combination Ctrl + V
 
 
This procedure is useful  when a transaction was listed out of chronological order on your broker trade history report, and therefore was not imported and matched properly.  Cutting the transaction and pasting it back into the data file inserts the transaction at the end of the day so it can be matched properly. Use Edit, Renumber Trades after pasting to rematch all trades in the data file.
