using excel with TWS automated trade

  1. I am having a hard time just getting off the ground with excel and TWS.

    what i want to be able to do is have a conditional order executed.

    Here is my criteria,

    If XYZ open > A and
    XYZ open < B then
    buy XYZ at limit of C
    end if

    pretty simple but I have not been able to get past just getting quotes with excel through TWS.

    I want to have about 30+ of these per day and they need to normally execute within the first 10 mins of trading so its not manageable manually.

    Any help would be great
