The fifty backtest limit is severely hindering my work. I've tried to capture the Backtesting page using a couple of different utilities without success. This is probably a result of the sophistication of the site incorporating cookies, login and a backend database. Is there a way for me to accomplish this? Or, can SF create an archiving function allowing me to download the my BT results and underlying code to maybe a spreadsheet? Thanks,

Once I have all 50 results copied, I run the macro and it parses the file into a pipe delimited format for import into Excel:
