This Ladder settings file can be used on any type of market, a key feature is it will display the following totals for your matched bets
Back Bets Matched (on each Selection)
Lay Bets Matched (on each Selection)
Lay Liability (on each Selection)
Total Matched in the Market

It also uses Value Based Colour Settings, this will change the colour of the text to red once they exceed a certain amount - making it very easy to see if you have had reached your intended limit and had to much matched or have to much liability on a selection or market.

*I have set these to change colour if you have more than £250 matched on a selection, and more than £500 matched on the market

In addition to the matched bets being display the ladder settings file also has shaded the cells with money waiting in them, and the traded volume column displays the values as a percentage.
The EPIQ (estimated Position in Queue) is also enabled and configured to be displayed in the Traded Volume columns

So when this file is used it will appear as shown in the image below;
