Request: How can I get the symbols I see in the All Contracts Window into Excel? I cannot select the columns and copy and paste.
Solution: CQG offers an Excel RTD Add-in. There is a 64-bit Excel version and a 32-bit Excel version. Please check your version of Excel. To check your Excel version, click File then click Account. In the Account screen, click About Excel.
Once installed, one option is using the Derivatives List. This is the same symbol list used in the CQG All Contracts window. In the Get Derivative Contract List dialog, enter in the symbol in quotes and then choose futures, options, or fixed income and the cell for the output.
