The response time from Excel is affected by several variables, Including workstation memory, CPU speed, and other applications running on the workstation.
Example: If you meet the minimum hardware requirements for X_TRADER, but are running a complex theoretical quote-generating program for multiple products/strikes, this creates a significant load on your microprocessor(s), which can slow the response time. Consult your System Administrator for assistance.

Note: When you open a workspace that includes links into X_TRADER from a saved Excel file, X_TRADER automatically opens the Excel file.
