I'm wanting to pull data from excel into some ToS code... when I google it, the only thing I can find is exporting data from ToS into excel. The excel sheet updates once daily.

Is this possible to do with ToS?
 
I apologize, I should have been more specific.

I have an excel sheet that updates daily.. the code needs to pull values from those dates. What I don't want to do is go in and manually have to shift everything down one day to maintain the code. I'd rather have ToS pull from the excel sheet and replace one value with another assigned value. If that makes sense at all.

I guess maybe worst case scenario I could modify the excel sheet somehow to make it copy/paste into ToS.

I'm shocked this isn't an option though.
 
Anybody know how to setup that when I click on a symbols from excel it will link back to the TOS chart?
Please take a look at the picture; these symbols are real time quotes that I scanned then exported from TOS to Excel earlier.
Thanks!

Short of downloading and copying the lists manually I think the only other way would be to plug into Schwab's API

It MIGHT be conceivable to have excel generate ToS code.

So, let's start basic: What updates daily in your excel sheet? Is this being fed by ToS? Another source? Is it automatic or do you manually update it? If you manually update it, what is your source? Web site? Is the web site publicly available or is this information you get from a source you're paying for? A PDF posted somewhere? Another spreadsheet?
