    Hi all - I know there are some computer experts out there so hopefuly someone can point me in the right direction.

    I have 2 PCs set up on a network. One is my trading PC - just my trading algos etc. The other is my research PC, including a Bloomberg terminal. On the research PC I am using Active-X controls (DDE also possible) to feed BBG price data into Excel and other home-made applications.

    What I would now like to do is pipe the data from my BBG PC across the network to my trading PC in real-time so that it can be accessed in my trading algos. Is there an easy way to do this? Any tips would be appreciated.

    Just share out the drive and/or folder where the spreadsheet is. Then browse to it via "My Network Places" from the other computer.
