Best Answer
To remove data from the database, select Data -> Edit databases, select Quotes or Intraday database, select a symbol then right click on the row (date) you want to remove. Finally select "Remove Row".

In the new version 2.0.2, you can easily remove data in the Manage Databases tab.

To set the data field to today, you can use the PreScript or you can type "[TODAY]" in the "Default" field.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
