I am trying to automate the start-up of the connection from my ActiveX Excel spreadsheet to TWS. I run the connect subroutine as in the ActiveX IB sample sheet. But then the TWS comes up with a dialog box asking "Accept incoming connection attempt ?". To this I have to answer manually. It there a way to connect without this dialog box appearing ? I want to be able to automate the trading when I am away from home and connect by VBA without manual intervention. Any ideas ??? Jozef.
