How To Automatically Update Symbol list From (.CSV) To Amibroker

Hi Amibroker Community,
I need some help with a current technical issue!
I have created a .CSV File that automatically updates with symbols (only such as ASX-SMART-STK-AUD) I need for that current day. There is no quotation data involved.
I was wondering if there was a way in AMI-BROKER to automatically update a watch-list lets say every five minutes, with the new tickers as they are saved onto the .CSV. Rather than me having to manually import the .CSV to a watch-list every time it gets updated.

Yes. Several ways:
If the list is CSV is constantly being updated, then I suggest you use windows task scheduler to launch Amiquote periodically, and it will re-read the file contents on each start.

Command line is something like this (change extension from tls to csv and make sure file contents are in correct format).

C:\Program Files\AmiBroker\AmiQuote\Quote.exe "C:\Program Files\AmiBroker\AmiQuote\Yahoo-USA-Tickers.tls" /autoupdate

Note: there are other ways to start Amiquote from AFL as well.
