I don’t know from where you got the aqq_chris.format file that you posted above but definitelly NOT from default installation.
Trouble with QuanDL.com CHRIS is that it is inconsistent. For example data for CHRIS/ASX_TN2 looks as follows:
The aqq_chris.format file that ships with AmiQuote uses the ABOVE format (settlement only)
# CHRIS database (futures)
Unfortunatelly, once you try other symbols from very same database, the layout of data is completely different.
The data for CHRIS/CME_AD1 look as follows:
Date,Open,High,Low,Last,Change,Settle,Volume,Previous Day Open Interest
Totally different format. I don’t know what these guys @ QuanDL.com are thinking but really changing data format within single database is absurd.
