(DJI-30 is normally used with TC-2000)
7. Enter the directory where the temporary ascii data is located.
8. Enter the Tiger directory where you want the converted data to be
saved to. Typically this is C:\stocks. It may also be
another directory provided you have first built such a
directory using the SELECT button from the 8-button PEERCOMM screen.
9. When you save the data to a directory, it replaces whatever is there.
10. When the data has been successfully converted, you may then run the
TIGER graphing or ranking/flagging programs. Note the messages you
get during the conversion process. You should be told that the
files have been successfully created. If not, carefully repeat
the steps above. Be sure NOT to pick all stocks as your watch list.
If you do, you will have to delete all the files in the directory
that houses your ascii data or use a new directory dedictated
to that purpose.
11. At the 8 button screen do not use the Download or BBS buttons.
The Download Button is for Dial Data users and the BBS button
is obsolete now that you can get the Peerless index data, hotline
