Excel Automating Trading Journal from IB

Hi All

Has anyone ever created an excel trading journal that takes your trades automatically from the API,sort/classifies them properly and computes the usual performance stats.

alternatively just a spreadsheet that automatically recognizes, sorts, and classifies the trades when cut and past from the IB "Trades" window???
This would really save a lot of time, my excel skills are simply not good enough for this.

Does The Trade Log do what you want?

EDIT: Maybe there is a compatible template out there that would give you the stats you want.

You could look at Tradervue or TradeBench, import your trades there and, if the reports are not sufficient, download the trades as Excel file including post-trade metrics like P&L etc done for you.
