In production we're getting a "Side is Required" error from the code below however it works fine in the test environment. Any ideas welcome. Thanks!
Private Function SendOptionsOrder() As Integer '=============================================================== ' Send diagonal options order to REDI. '=============================================================== Dim Ord As New COMPLEXORDER Dim RediRtn As Variant Dim RetVal As Integer: RetVal = RET_OK Dim ErrMsg As Variant ' Complex order header Ord.Strategy = "Diagonal" Ord.SetSymbol 0, "VICI" Ord.SetTIF 0, "Day" Ord.SetAccount 0, "ACC1" ' Long Put Ord.SetSide 1, "Buy" Ord.SetPosition 1, "Open" Ord.SetOptType 1, "Put" Ord.SetMonth 1, "Jan '23" Ord.SetStrike 1, "30.00" ' Short Put Ord.AddOptionLeg Ord.SetSide 2, "Sell" Ord.SetPosition 2, "Open" Ord.SetOptType 2, "Put" Ord.SetMonth 2, "Nov '21" Ord.SetStrike 2, "25.00" ' complete header details Ord.CustomerIndicator = "xyz" Ord.SetExchange 0, "IBCO DMA" Ord.SetQuantity 0, 1 Ord.SetPriceType 0, "Limit" Ord.SetPrice 0, 2 ' send order RediRtn = Ord.Submit(ErrMsg) If Not RediRtn Then RetVal = RET_FAIL If Trim(ErrMsg) = "" Then ErrMsg = "No error message returned.

Hello @DDALY ,
Try to remove
Appears to be causing the same misreport, for me - hope this helps
When order population requirements for ComplexOrders in REDI turn a bit tricky, I find it helpful to go back to REDI VB ExcelExamples on GitHub -> Example "Order Entry - Complex Option", start with the working example for a specific option type, and work to the current requirement.
Hi, @zoya faberov, Firstly, that worked so thank you! Also, great advice on the example Excel file - I'll keep that handy for reference.
The problem however is that now it doesn't work for me in the staging environment [see error message]. I remember this was the reason I added that line of code in the first place. Seems like there is some kind of environmental mismatch. How can we fix this?
Hello @DDALY and all,
Please find our Complex Options -> Diagonal sample updated on GitHub, to set Symbol before setting Strategy.
This example code is verified to work with versions 19 and 21, and by following the same approach, you should be able to have the custom code running under both versions.
Diagonal example does not include setting AddOptionLeg. It is not intended for use for Diagonal, it should only be used for custom strategy.
Hope this information helps
Thanks @zoya faberov, got it! Ties back to this solution as well https://community.developers.refinitiv.com/questions/84071/how-to-enter-a-custom-eq-order-via-redi-api.html?childToView=84669#answer-84669.
