    Maybe someone can help enlighten me. I've got 3 TWS's on my pc, one for each of 3 accts I watch. All are ver. 854.7 Two of them don't seem to have the columns for "OCA Group" or "P&L" available in the list. For the life of me I can't seem to find where those columns would be listed so I can add them to my TWS. Any help while I wait on hold with cust svc? Thanks.

    Do you really mean you've installed TWS 3 times? That's unnecessary. You only need one install and you can run it multiple times.

    Yes you're right, one install, 3 logins. That's what I meant, alanm.

    A little off topic but does anyone know about the Web platform offered by IB? I use the TWS but when I'm away from home, I would like to use the web platform but cannot access this (it won't start up). I can't find anything on the IB website which explains this. Thanks in advance.

    on the type right next to "login" there is a drop down menu and web trader is one of the choices.

    also under the software menu, there is a choice for web trader with the sub-menus:
    system requirements

    that should get you started.

    I think the browser-based version requires Java, and if you are using somebody else's computer, Java may not be installed. Even if it works, I wouldn't recommend trading from somebody else's computer because of security concerns.

    There is a Web Trader and there is a Web-based TWS. They are different creatures. Web Trader does not require Java.
