IB - importing quotes into Excel

Discussion in 'Trading Software' started by ManhattanTrader, Aug 23, 2002.

  1. ok, let's say that I want to download quotes(bid-ask-sizes-last)from IB into Excel in real time without having to push the 'request market data' button in the sample excel spreadsheet from IB. how do I do that?

    thanks in advance to those who will respond.
  2. any idea?anyone?

    Try attached sample xls file (for edemo user).
    You should assign different id for different symbols. Then request quotes for these id.

    I know the DDE and API links IB provides can be very useful, but it takes some time and skill to figure out how to do anything from scratch. Having a template like you provided gives programming neophytes (like myself) a big headstart.
