* For an illustrated example refer to the RTD Server page.
* The RTD COM automation add-in must be installed and registered on the computer.
* No RTD servers are shipped with Microsoft Office, so you must manually install a real-time data server if you want to use this function.
* The "progID" must be enclosed in speech marks.
* The "server" can be left blank for testing but if the data is coming from a different machine, this machine name must be provided.
* If the real-time data server is being run locally then leave the "server" argument blank.
* This function will only continuously update when the calculation mode is set to automatic.
* When using RTD within Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), double quotation marks or the VBA NullString property are required for the server, even if the server is running locally.
* You can have a maximum of 28 topics.
* For the Microsoft documentation refer to support.microsoft.com
