I would like to know if I can run an intraday strategy (with an 1 minute bar) in the Strategy Monitor where the source is an ASCII file which is updated by an external program every minute ?

To work with the Strategy Monitor, a data provider must support "data update on demand" feature. ASCII files are not that kind, so the ASCII provider shouldn't work with the SM.

Do you have a list of native WLD Data Provider interfaces which does not support "On Demand data updates" ?

Another question... Does this feature work with Yahoo Provider ?

Of course, our Yahoo provider works in the Strategy Monitor - if this is what you're asking.
