Things to keep in mind

Once you have downloaded the trade book, you can open the file (in your app of choice like Excel, Google Sheets, etc.) to check it out. However, DO NOT SAVE THIS FILE after opening, as saving the file changes the date-time format of the orders. 

The default date-time format of your computer system will be used in your orders, which may raise errors.

warning

Under the current system limitations, we want the orders to be in their original format. Hence, after downloading and opening the trade book csv file, do not save it, to avoid any errors.
