Jim,

One thing that does add an extra hurdle with testing SIPro screens in particular is that with each new update to the backtester, the way to enter fields keeps changing.

I had figured out, more or less, how to run some of my favorite SIPro screens in the 2009 GTR1 version. But now, they don't work anymore in the 2011 version.

In the links you gave to the examples and the field summary, they are only accurate for testing thru 2007, I believe.

Is there anywhere a nice compendium mapping the correct *current* field entries to their equivalents back in 2008 when Robbie gave the examples and field summary? This would be truly helpful!
