Define Position Numbers

Without changing the order of the original at all, we need to define static Position Numbers as well.  Note that the Leg#'s and Strategy#'s should be static as well as we may end up using them for sorting purposes.

Positions can be more than one spread of a particular symbol.  There is only one type of position that encompasses two types of spreads so for now, there is no need to go there.

Rule1:  There is never more than one symbol for any one position.
Rule2:  'Today' there is never more than one spread for any one position.

Given those two (2) rules, it should be relatively easy to figure out what makes up a position, and simply number them.  Each position has one number for every row in that position.

again not quite sure what a position number is.  I don't know your data very well is all.

Can you type a couple in for me?

Here you go.  Should be a little clearer.  Before we go much further, I just noticed something else I should have corrected.  The Expiration Date should be Month, Year for each.  This is from a CSV export and the column doesn't matter right now but down the road it should be corrected to show in that format.

Corrected again to include the combining of columns (Symbol, Exp, Strike, Type).  This should have come first as well as it would have made what we are doing now a little easier to see.  Once the Exp date format is corrected, the columns should be combined.

Is the spy = 3 because the first time spy diagonal appears is strategy number 3?
