Notes:

  • You can not modify a published manual fill. You may only alter manual fill data prior to publishing, or you can create a new manual fill to offset the one you published previously.
  • You can also enter a manual fill from the Fills Pane Context Menu.

Tip: You can also drag-and-drop an instrument from the Market Explorer window to create a new manual fill record for that instrument type.

To enter a manual fill:

  1. From the Control Panel, click the icon. The SODs/Manual Fills window displays.
  2. Within the empty record at the bottom of the window click to select Admin Fill or Local Fill from the SOD/MF column.
