"With HUGE volume on AAPL and RIMM for 2 days, everyone in a trading room was whining about freezes, crashes and lag with *******, RealTick, TS and Cyber. InvestorRT with IQFeed was rock solid. I mean SOLID!" - Comment from Public IRC Chat
"Version 4.0.0.2 has been working well for me and I appreciate that it is now a much tighter client to work with. I feel I can go to press with my own application and rely on a stable platform" - Comment from David in IA.
"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
"Thank you so much - awesome feed, awesome service!" - Comment from Greg via Email
"Just a thank you for the very helpful and prompt assistance and services. You provided me with noticeably superior service in my setup compared to a couple of other options I had looked at." - Comment from John
"I would just like to say that IQFeed version 4 is running very well and I am very happy with its performance. I would also like to extend a big thanks for the fast and efficient help that I always receive. My questions and concerns are always addressed promptly. Way to go!" - Comment from Josh in CO.
"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
"I just wanted to say how happy I am with your service. I was able to download the API docs last week and I was able to replicate Interactive Brokers historical bar queries and realtime bar queries over the weekend. That was about one of the fastest integrations that I've ever done and it works perfectly!!!!" - Comment from Jason via Email
"I've never had DTN go out on me since switching. ******* would go down a couple times every month when I was using them." - Comment from Bryce in AL.
"IQ feed works very well, does not have all of the normal interruptions I have grown used to on *******" - Comment from Mark

I was wondering if there are any examples available showing how to use the various external
libraries like DTNHistoryLookup or DTNNewsLookup in Visual Basic for Application ?

Thanks for your help!

We don't have any examples of using IQFeed in VBA. I don't have any experience with VBA, but if there is an ability to send and receive from a TCP socket, it should be possible. The key is that you would need to manually launch IQFeed (you could do this with IQLink Launcher), then talk to the socket to send and receive messages. Maybe someone else has done this and could provide information.

On the flip side, our ProphetX product line does allow the retrieval of historical data via DDE, but there isn't a retail API avialable at this time. I know there is at least one commercial app that wrote to IQFeed to pull historical data, but I can't recall the name right now.

www.quotelink.net run by Antonio is a great resource for Excel based analysis using IQFeed. He's up at all hours and quickly responds to emails.
