I have a .CSV file of quote data that displays dates in the the following format (this example shows how November 29th 2015 is displayed)

20151129

I am getting an error message regarding the date when I try to import this CSV into Quantshare using the ASCII Import Tool. Here is a link showing 3 screenshots of what happens exactly
when I try to do the import http://bit.ly/1ObRfNp

Screenshot 1.jpg= Has a red circle showing the "custom" datatype setting I am using to type in the date's format
Screenshot 2.jpg= Has a red circle showing the "custom" date value I typed in in screenshot 1 does not seem to be recognized.
Screenshot 3.jpg= Has a red circle showing the error message i am getting when I try to do the import.

Any idea why i'm getting this error?

thanks!

Here is the correct date format there:
[Y][M][D] [h][m][s]

In your case, you must put:
[Y][M][D]

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
