Hi - I currently use the IQFeed/Excel interface to stuff a spreadsheet. Works quite well.

A cell might have something like the following in it, which will display the last trading price for MSFT:

=IQLink|msft!last


Two questions, tho:

* Pls point me to the list of available parms to use with this; can't find it. This used to be on the website somewhere, but it's been several years since I last saw it(I think). Or, maybe it was buried in some doc on using this interface.

* I'm specifically interested in getting the previous day/week/month's High, Low, Open, Close values, so I can run 'em through some formulas. Any way to get this from the iQFeed interface, or do I -have- to use a 3rd party product like QCollector? I have a license for QC and know I can get this info there, but would rather not add an extra layer of software to the process, just to get some basic info.

Thank you for your forum post.

Please review this link, you will find this very helpful. You can find both formulas and DDE Fields you are looking for.

Thanks, that's the list.

Now, what about retrieving last month's HLOC info? No parms in the list, so am I outa luck or what? Doesn't appear to be a way to specify timeframe.

Correct DDE does not quote historical data.

Please keep in mind Q Collector does not use our DDE interface; in this case you would be replacing a layer with Q Collector.

Yup, I was aware of that. Have several alternatives for what I need and will be scoping them out over the next few weeks.
