UK/US data query


Active member
hi all
I'm not sure if this is the right place for this query but here goes.

Until now I have only downloaded UK stock prices for my Metastock EOD data files. But a few days ago decided that i should start looking at US stocks; so I created a new directory for US stocks and downloaded a few historical data files as a test. On the face of it seemed OK.

However, I have since found out that the downloaded data has overwritten some of my UK stock data because it had the same epic code!! dumb eh??

So the question is-- whats the recommended way of ensuring the two epics are separate? I could go through all my UK stocks and add .L to the symbol but seems a bit longwinded?
AIQ has a similar problem, best contact the vendor for the solution.
