1) Tried using Industry Updater (attached below), but it gives errors for each symbol saying "Symbol name cannot be empty". Finviz doesn't provide this data in its free service.
- how do i make this work? If not, is there another Downloader for industry data?

2) I also used the use the "Symbol -> Auto Manage Symbols" tool, and checked the industry() and sector() columns in the screener, but they're empty.
- How do i make this work? Which database is the industry saved in?

1/ The downloader no longer works. Finviz used to provide the data free but no longer provide it

2/ The industry and sector information are not stored in database. You can find them when selecting "Symbol -> Update Symbol" or "Symbol -> Categories"

1) I can get the Industry and Sector info from other sources in a csv file - How can i Update Symbols in bulk?

2) Also, is there a way to Add Industry (in Symbol->Categories) in bulk from a csv file?

3) Finally, once i do this, I assume the comp() function and industry() functions will reference this info to determine Average industry metrics in Screens and Simulations?

1/ Using "Symbol -> Import Symbols from a file"

2/ No, using above or using a script

3/ Yes, use "industry()" for example in the "Group" parameter
