Mac OS, TOS real-time data to Excel?

    Is there a way on Mac OS to get TOS real-time data into Excel?

    Specifically, I'd like to get option data into Excel. But I am curious more generally if anything is possible at this point in time. =RTD("tos.rtd", , "MARK", "AAPL") gives a "#N/A" result. Not sure if I need to specify a server.

    Google is not helping me except to vaguely suggest that what I am trying to do is not possible on the Mac side of things.

    Any guidance would be much appreciated.

    RTD is outdated tech so you shouldnt use it. Moreover, I don't believe it is possible on OS X.
  3. RTD only works on the windows version of excel.

    OK, thanks. Gaussian, what is the current tech?
  5. why do you have to run it on the Mac, can't you install a Windows on a Virtual Machine? I do that on my Mac using VMware Fusion

    Yes, I have Parallels. Just was hoping to keep it on the Mac side if possible (where I do everything else).
