    i am not using any of the Bridge function, All coding is done using Excel VBA, will this affect for 1. Login 2. Order Placement to Kite etc ?

    1. Bridge functions are meant for placing orders from external software’s like AmiBroker, MetaTrader etc. Not using Bridge function will not affect Login or Order placement using Kite/Upstox class.
