How To Export Trade History From Schwab

How To Export Trade History From Schwab:

The csv file download is limited to 1500 records. 

There is no way to know ahead of time if the date range you have requested will exceed this limit.  If the limit is exceeded, the file will contain no records and you will have to shorten the date range and try again (our advice break it up by quarter).

1.  Log on to your Schwab trading account and Click on the Account tab and then History tab.  If you have more than one account, select the account you wish to download from in the drop down.  Then make sure to select Transactions as the type of history to download.

2.  The filter should be set to All Transactions. You can confirm this by clicking on Edit Filter, make sure All Transactions has been checked, then click Apply

 Note: This is necessary so you can get all option expirations, exercises, and assignments.

3.     Select the date range from the drop down box: Previous YearCurrent Year, or you can select a Custom Date Range and fill in the From/To dates, then click Search.

4.     TIP: For best results, click on the Date column header to sort the date in ASCENDING order (oldest date first), this will help import trades in correct order.

5.     Click the Export button to begin the csv file download.

6.     Click the OK button on the popup Export Transactions Data dialog box.

Click the Save button on the popup File Download dialog box.

Note: If the csv file opens in your web browser, or opens in Microsoft Excel, rather than receiving a prompt to download and save, then there is likely a problem with your Windows file associations for csv files.

NOTE: If the File Download box fails to appear, you may have to enable File Downloading in your web browser by right-clicking on the following message in Internet Explorer and selecting Download File:

7.  Click the Save button to save the file to this location on your hard drive.

8.  You are now ready to upload to TraderFyles
