I wonder if someone can help me. I bought a new PC and downloaded the latest TWS and the sample spreadsheet. Twsdde.xls. It links fine however in the ticker sheet, the bid and ask and last values for my symbols are in text format and i cannot do any calculations with these numbers. when i load this file on my other pc it links perfectly and the outputs are values allowing me to perform calculations. On my other pc i have a much older version of TWS running....could this be the problem; that the latest version TWS does not interact with the Twsdde.xls too well?
