Using the watch-list tool, you can monitor stocks and display the number of notes for each one of these stocks.
It is very easy to track the number of notes and the following article will show you how to do it.

Few things you need to know:
- Add a note to a stock by typing CONTROL+N or right clicking on a chart then selecting Tools -> Notes
- Notes are stored in an internal intraday database whose name is "_notes"


- Open the watchlist tool by selecting "Tools" in the main menu then "Watchlist"
- Click on "Create" then on "Create a dynamic watchlist"
- Select all symbols in the "Select Symbols" form, and then click on "Next"
- Type the following formula: (Click on "Switch to editor" if you are in "wizard" mode)

notes1 = Sum(GetDataCount("_notes", "note"));
filter = notes1 > 0;
AddColumn("Notes", notes1);

// we calculate the number of notes for each stock using the "Sum" and "GetDataCount" functions then we display this data using the "AddColumn" method

- Click on "Next" then type the watchlist name. (Example: Notes)

The watchlist is automatically updated each time you add a new note to a stock.

You can also display the number of notes per stock using the screener or pivot table tools.
