I am able to manually export mt4 historical data for forex EUR/USD as a csv file. However, i run my excel spreadsheet for calculation and would dearly love the hourly candlestick prices to come in automatically. (Open High Low Close Vol)

Anyone able to suggest?

Use DDE


Edit: your question is almost the same as the OP verbatim from 8 years ago ;)

i need something like this to come in automatically, so that my excel can keep updating without me having to paste the csv file hourly.






open high low close vol

So you need a history of hourly OHLCV?

That's easy to do using file functions in MQL.

bool IsNewBar()
{
   //each tick, check if it's a new 1 hour candle

   static datetime barTime;
   bool result = false;
   
   if(barTime != iTime(NULL,PERIOD_H1,0))
   {
      barTime = iTime(NULL,PERIOD_H1,0);  
     //you'll need to create a function to populate arrOHLCV     
     WriteToExcel("myHistory.csv", arrOHLCV[]);
     result = true;
   }
   
return(result);
}

Create an array with all the info you need and write to excel:

void WriteToExcel(string fileName, string arrayToWrite[]) 
{
   int handle = FileOpen(fileName, FILE_CSV|FILE_WRITE|FILE_READ, ',');
   for(int i = 0; i < ArraySize(arrayToWrite); i++) FileWrite(handle, arrayToWrite[i]);
   FileClose(handle);

return;
}

dear sir

sorry  for my ignorance in Mql but am good in excel and has the strong need also to get ohlc to come in to excel automatically and by period, i.e each candle's data to be filled in a new row in excel 

so how to use this mql code exactly please (as i know nothing about programing, and am really sorry for that). 

regards
