    Problem solved. I was using a computer at work, so I did not have the administrator password. To begin, right click on the TOS desktop icon and run as administrator. Enter your account # and admin. password, as you normally do. When the TOS program starts, open the trade screen and export your data into an excel spreadsheet. It should work fine.

    I’m using windows now, and able to copy and paste data directly into an excel spread sheet. The cells appear as “name” only, and are static. If I create a file, then copy and paste it into excel, the data appears, but remains static. My TOS platform is running.

        There futures markets are open and my TOS trading platform is running. Does this only work during regular trading hours for equities?

        1. Make sure you are using the current version of MS Excel or Apache Open Office. 2. Check for warnings messages requiring you to “enable content” on the spreadsheet. 3. Wait to see if this all starts working when markets open. 4. Contact TDA support for assistance if none of these fix the issue as this is as far as I can take you.
