    I called OptionVue today and spoke to Ken Dole about how to import IB trade data into OptionVue. He sent me a good Word doc but I converted it to an online help format:

    It was pretty easy to do. IB and OV both remember your settings so after the initial pain of setting it up, it should go very quickly each time you need to import your trades.

    Hi Tom,
    I just tried your instructions and found out that OptionVue no longer supports the parameter "Tran Type". They have changed it to "Side". So you might want to update your instructions so that others wouldn't have to go through the frustration.

    Hi Tom,
    (Sorry to bump an old thread) Have you noticed that the IB reports expiration dates don't exactly match the actual trades? e.g. In my case I have RTT trades for May17 and June14 (both 2018) but the IB report shows them as May18 and June15.
