Need help placing order with TOS

    I am sure I could figure it out through trial and error, but at 11pm, I am just not in the mood.

    I am trying out the paper trading at TOS to learn their order entry system. Although I am starting to think the platform might be too complex for me at the moment.

    All I am trying to do is set a Buy Stop Limit as the main order set to trigger two other orders. A Sell Market and a Sell Limit. I want the two sell orders to be an OCO order.

    I set the order type to 1st Trgs Seq. Then I clicked on the Ask Once and the Bid price twice so I have three orders in the Order Entry Window. I set the order type and the prices. I am assuming that the first line, in my case a buy order, will trigger the two sell orders below it. But how do I set the two sell orders to be OCO?

    This seems like it should be a simple order to set up, but I am either trying to make it too difficult, or I am missing something simple.

    I would really appreciate some help.
