Saxo Bank releases version 1.2.0 of OpenAPI for Excel
Updates include refresh options – to either refresh all OpenAPI formulas in the workbook, or just for the single sheet.
Multi-asset trading and fintech services provider Saxo Bank has released a new version of its OpenAPI for Excel.
With version 1.2.0, OpenAPI for Excel is further enhanced with some useful features that were requested by Saxo API’s users. Updates include refresh options (to either refresh all OpenAPI formulas in the workbook, or just for the single sheet), fixes made to the trading functions in preparation of upcoming requirements, and a fix to properly handle data from OpenAPI endpoints that follow a non-standard data model (such as the AutoTrade endpoint).
The preceding version of the API was rolled out about a month ago. With an improved authentication flow, reverse-populating Formula Builder window, updates to trading functionality, improved data handling, and a long list of bugs resolved, that update marked a milestone with regards to the evolution of the solution.
Version 1.1.1 of the API made logging in easier. Instead of opening a side bar and resizing the Excel window, the login prompt now appears as pop-up. In addition, it runs a few quick checks before handing control back to the user to ensure a smooth transition into the app without hiccups.
Also, that version enabled the Formula Builder to be used in reverse, which means it has become extremely easy to adjust a formula quickly and pull out updates. Users have to select any part of the array that is returned on the sheet and click the Formula Builder button.
Also, the User-Defined Functions (UDFs) that are included in the add-in got proper built-in documentation with correct naming and help URLs sending users straight to the Function Documentation section on this website.
