Hi m.mohaddespour,

Since "executed volume" is not typically available in FX, TIckstory sums on the bid/ask order book at the time. This is expressed in millions and if liquidity is low, I imagine the result could be zero.
If you need a positive value in the 'volume' field when importing, you can manually enter a "1" in the volume field to force the value to always be positive (i.e. a value of 1).

This should hopefully resolve your import issue.

Thanks.
