Newest version of Saxo Bank’s OpenAPI for Excel brings performance improvements
Version 1.3.6 brings performance improvements and a number of small bug fixes related to VBA interactions.
Multi-asset trading services provider and fintech expert Saxo Bank has released a new version of its OpenAPI for Excel.
Version 1.3.6 brings performance improvements and a number of small bug fixes related to VBA interactions that result in single-item responses, which would show as Variants with multiple entries instead of just 1. This has now been updated.
As FinanceFeeds has reported, the first release of Saxo’s OpenAPI for Excel in 2020 further expanded the add-ins features with support for Level 2 market data, and addresses some minor bugs that affected a couple of the API users where localization settings in Windows affected Excel’s behavior. Additionally, streaming functionality has been restored following unannounced changes in Microsoft Office updates for Excel versions 2019 and 365.
In September 2019, the broker released version 1.3.1 of the solution, which included an important upgrade to the security protocols used by the Excel add-in to connect to Saxo’s services.
The preceding version saw a raft of potentially breaking changes for users. Trade functions were deprecated and removed from the add-in. This important change came on the back of developments in the market requiring applications with trade access to declare order types (manual or automated). The required changes were minor for most clients, and performance improvements could be expected when switching over from the now-deprecated trade UDFs.
