    Does anyone know how to stream live option price and volume to excel?
    Do I need buy to some sort of software, or sign up for subscription, or I can write code in excel that allows me to do that?

    Some brokers, thinkorswim and interactive brokers to name two, provide DDE capability.

    As MTE mentioned, some brokers offer quote linkage to Excel. There are other sources as well, usually by subscription. Do a web search on "DDE + quotes" and ignore all of the Dover Downs Entertainment links :)
