Automatically update in EXCEL

Hello All,

I am looking to use excel only to run some macros that will need to update automatically at EOD. I can get the macro portion done in excel but I need to find a way to tie a data source into excel so Im not updating OHLC for 70 markets by hand.

Any solutions?

If you have an account at IB you can use their DDE for Excel and even manage your trades from the spreadsheet:

With an IB account, NO dde is necessary with this FREE tool- "IB Excel adapter".
