    Hi Pete! I am using WPS Office Excel Spreadsheet to download RTD from Thinkorswim. Everything works fine except, when the live data begins the following morning, all of my RTD data is static until I refresh each entry on my spreadsheet by retyping one of the letters in the cell. Is this normal? I was hoping it would just start up again automatically each morning.

      It’s been a very long time since I have used this feature so I am not certain if anything has changed. I can only tell you that at the time I published this video the saved spreadsheet worked just fine on startup. No need to jump through extra hoops. FYI, I have never heard of “WPS Office Excel”. Is that a knock-off version of Microsoft Excel? If so, I would suspect that to be a problem.

        Thx, is there away to attach an excel spreadsheet that I am working on as an example, when I do so?

        Sorry but Excel file types are not supported at this time. The forum on this site is geared solely towards trading platforms and Excel spreadsheets are not a direct component of any trading platform.

    Hi. I am getting the live data – thanks for the help!
    And do you know if there a way using RTD to read, lets say Volume for an equity every 30 minutes during regular trading hours? So basically I would like to have a cell for each 30 minute increment so I can save it.
