In order to connect AmiBroker to TeleChart database (www.worden.com) – the following steps are required:

  1. Install 32-bit version of AmiBroker. Only 32-bit version will work, because TC only offers 32-bit API for connection.

  2. It is also needed to have TeleChart version 7 installed (aka TC 2007), because newest releases of TeleChart software don’t offer any connectivity from outside. TeleChart 7 is available for download from: http://www.worden.com/Products/TC2000/InstallVersion7

  3. Once both programs are installed and the database is configured in TeleChart – the only required task is to configure AmiBroker to read data from TC. The configuration process is presented in this video:

In case of any connectivity issues or incorrect/incomplete data – sometimes (when TeleChart installation is broken), a clean installation of TC is required. The detailed information regarding clean install procedure is available at:

Additional background about database concepts and general way how such setup works is explained in the following tutorial chapter:
