Path and name of CSV file to optionally create


If SaveScanAs is specified, then the contents of the scan window are automatically saved to the specified file in CSV format each time a scan is run. If the file already exists, it will be overwritten without confirmation.

If SaveScanAs is not specified, there is no prompt to save a scan, but you can easily do so using the Scan Menu.

Most scans that you run are likely to be quick one-off explorations that do not require saving. The SaveScanAs setting was added mainly to make it easier to create a daily candidate list for live trading.

Unlike some Scan and Test Settings, there is no Settings Panel equivalent for this particular option and the setting does not persist.

See File Path Specification for helpful tips including special path expansion variables.
