  2. Close MultiCharts and all its applications. Make sure there are no MultiCharts Processes left in Task Manager → Details tab → Description column.
  3. Run RTD Server.exe and follow the installation wizard.
  4. Run MultiCharts and create a chart with real-time data.
  5. Right-click the chart → Insert Study → in the Indicator tab select the Symbol Data indicator. Click OK to apply it to the chart.
  6. Open up an Excel file → Add-ins tab → in the Custom Toolbars select MultiCharts:InsertSymbolData.
  7. Choose required data in the Insert MultiCharts Symbol window and click OK.

Now real-time data should be streaming into the Excel file.
