"I am enjoying the feed very much - so superior to the broker provided feed I was previously using." - Comment from George
"Thank God for your Data Feed as the only Zippers I see are on my pants (LOL), and no more 200 pip spikes to mess up charts." - Comment from Spiro via Email
"Boy, probably spent a thousand hours trying to get ******* API to work right. And now two hours to have something running with IQFeed. Hmmm, guess I was pretty stupid to fight rather than switch all this time. And have gotten more customer service from you guys already than total from them… in five years." - Comment from Jim
"This beats the pants off CQG, I am definitely switching to the ProphetX 3.0!" - Comment from Stephen
"I have been using IQFeed now for a few years in MultiCharts and I have zero complaints. Very, very rare to have any data hiccups or anything at all go wrong." - Comment from Public Forum
"I'm satisfied with IQFeed. It's the most reliable and fastest quote feed I have ever used. Although I'm a resident in China, it's still very fast!" - Comment from Xiaofei
"Thanks for the great product and support. During this week of high volume trading, my QuoteTracker + IQ Feed setup never missed a beat. Also, thanks for your swiftness in responding to data issues. I was on ******* for a few years before I made the switch over early this year, and wish I had done it a long time ago." - Comment from Ken
"Very impressed with the quality of your feed - ******* is a real donkey in comparison." - Comment from A.C. via Email
"I used to have *******, but they are way more money for the same thing. I have had no probs with data from DTN since switching over." - Comment from Public Forum Post
"I ran your IQFeed DDE vs. my broker vs. a level II window for some slow-moving options. I would see the level II quote change, then your feed update instantaneously. My broker's DDE, however, would take as much as 30 seconds to update. I am not chasing milliseconds, but half a minute is unacceptable." - Comment from Rob

While writing some interface code, I noticed that LOOKUP SLM / SST / STC / SSC / SNC doesn't seem to be able to take a [RequestID] as outlined in the docs...

... responds properly when RequestID is not included.

It ends up resulting in an !SYNTAX_ERROR!.

<see attached>

Obviously not a big deal - just happened to notice.

PROTOCOL: 6.2.0.5

Note that protocols are only Major.Minor. I'm guessing you meant IQFeed version 6.2.0.5 and the protocol you are using is unknown from your post.

With that said, I am unable to duplicate this behavior except on old protocols where RequestID was not yet supported on these commands (4.9-5.1). It would appear you are using one of those older protocols.

 S,SET PROTOCOL,6.2
S,CURRENT PROTOCOL,6.2
SLM
LS,1,NGM,Nasdaq Global Market,5,NASDAQ,
LS,2,NCM,National Capital Market,5,NASDAQ,
...
SLM,TEST
TEST,LS,1,NGM,Nasdaq Global Market,5,NASDAQ,
TEST,LS,2,NCM,National Capital Market,5,NASDAQ,
...


S,SET PROTOCOL,6.1
S,CURRENT PROTOCOL,6.1
SLM
1,NGM,Nasdaq Global Market,5,NASDAQ,
2,NCM,National Capital Market,5,NASDAQ,
...
TEST,1,NGM,Nasdaq Global Market,5,NASDAQ,
TEST,2,NCM,National Capital Market,5,NASDAQ,
...

protocol 6.0 is the same as 6.1 and 5.2 for this request)
S,SET PROTOCOL,5.2
S,CURRENT PROTOCOL,5.2
SLM
1,NGM,Nasdaq Global Market,5,NASDAQ,
2,NCM,National Capital Market,5,NASDAQ,
...
SLM,TEST
TEST,1,NGM,Nasdaq Global Market,5,NASDAQ,
TEST,2,NCM,National Capital Market,5,NASDAQ,
...


Here is where it stops working (and all older protocols). This is intended.
 S,SET PROTOCOL,5.1
S,CURRENT PROTOCOL,5.1
SLM
1,NGM,Nasdaq Global Market,
2,NCM,National Capital Market,
...
SLM,TEST
E,!SYNTAX_ERROR!,

Steve - thanks for setting me straight - definitely was not setting the protocol properly as you noted.

Thanks - John
