Built-in RealTimeToDB Functions

Built-in RealTimeToDB Functions

The real-time field configuration table contains Excel-like formulas for getting data from real-time RTD and DDE servers.

Real-time servers can have no fields about date or time of the data.

In this case, you may use built-in RealTimeToDB formulas to update the database fields.

For example:

TABLE_SCHEMATABLE_NAMECOLUMN_NAMERTD_FORMULA
rtdQuoteDayHistoryTOSSymbol
rtdQuoteDayHistoryTOSDate=Date()
rtdQuoteDayHistoryTOSTime=Time()
rtdQuoteDayHistoryTOSLast=TOS|LAST![Symbol]
rtdQuoteDayHistoryTOSChange=TOS|NET_CHANGE![Symbol]
rtdQuoteDayHistoryTOSBid=TOS|BID![Symbol]
rtdQuoteDayHistoryTOSAsk=TOS|ASK![Symbol]

Thinkorswim thinkDesktop have no date and time fields.
So, to get the quote day history we need to use internal formulas =Date() and =Time().

Note, that the last data update fields are updated using the PC time adjusted to the table time zone, specified in the table configuration.

You may use the 'Eastern Standard Time' time zone for US stock exchanges.
