How to Feed Excel File With RT Data From MultiCharts (Use RTD Server)?

In order to feed an Excel file with real time data from MultiCharts you should use an RTD Server on this PC. Please see the instructions below:

  1. Download the RTD Server installer corresponding to your version of MultiCharts:
  2. Close MultiCharts and all its applications. Run Task Manager and make sure that all MC processes are shut down.
    Note: The list of processes your MultiCharts is currently running can be extended depending on the data feed and broker you are currently using.
  3. Run RTD Server.exe that you downloaded.
  4. Run MultiCharts and create a chart with streaming real time data.
  5. Make a right click on the chart or hit F7 and select the indicator called Symbol Data. Apply it to the chart.
  6. Open up the Excel file, select Add-Ins Toolbar, then select MultiCharts:InsertSymbolData from the custom Toolbars section.
