I am using the excel API to enter orders and it says a Price Type is required and i only have the fields for "Destination" and "Order Type", not Price Type.

Hello @mjc,

I find that sometimes this message is not entirely true.

When either symbol or exchange/destination is not set, or not valid, or not permissioned to the account being used, at the point when "PriceType"/"OrderType" is set, it will not actually be set, and when the order is submitted after, the result will be "PriceType is required". Perhaps this is what you are seeing.

If so, verify OrderType/PriceType is actually set. To be sure, symbol and destination have to be set, valid and premissioned to the account, prior to this set.

Hope this helps

Hi @mjc,

Order Type and Price Type are often used interchangeably. Would you mind including a screenshot of the Excel sheet you're using?

Thanks,

Brian
