    Hi all, I'm trying to monitor in real time 670 ETF from excel using DDE link. When I try to link it says maximum 100 ticker reached. Is there any workaround?
    Is it possible to query ticker full name from excel?

    Best,

    The number of quotes you can access depends on how much you do in commission. The workaround is to trade more or use a different quote provider (or open 7 IB accounts but then you will be losing interest on the first 10k for each account).
