Import using BrokerConnect

 
Note: If the csv file opens in your web browser, or opens in Microsoft Excel, rather than importing, then there is likely a problem with your Windows file associations for csv files. For instructions on how to fix this click here
 
General Procedure:
 
  • Run TradeLog and click on the Charles Schwab Imp button.

    A popup dialog box will ask whether you want to import using brokerConnect or Excel CSV Download. Select brokerConnect to import using brokerConnect.

    Note: If you already selected a default method of importing when creating your file, this box will not appear. See: Selecting a Broker Import Filter.
     
  • A popup dialog box allows you to enter your User Name, Password, and Account Number.

    Please make sure you enter a dash in your account number!



    The From date pick box shows the from date that will be used for this import. You can use the default date or if you want to import a specific day or you can select the first of the month date from the drop down calendar for a specific month.

    The To date pick box allows you to select your own end date for a custom date range import. The maximum date range is 13 months.

    If you are a very active trader, please select 1 Month to import one month at a time.

    Clicking on the Timeout button allows you to increase the time TradeLog will wait for a response. This may be necessary if you have a slow internet connection or large amounts of data. You may also have to reduce the date range as well and import in smaller chunks.

    This information gets encrypted and is stored in your TradeLog data file. It only needs to be entered once for each brokerage account.

    The next time you click the Charles Schwab Imp button your information will be displayed in the box and you simply click the OK button to continue.
     
  • Click OK and TradeLog will connect to Schwabs web site to get your most current trade information. TradeLog will automatically login to your account.

    Please do not click any keys while TradeLog gets your data!
     
  • Your trades will be automatically imported and matched.
