Doing a Cl Calendar Spread limit order from a chart results in...
Trading message from IB: Error validating request:-'bA' : cause - Please enter a valid security type. Error Code: 321. ServiceOrderID: 104. InternalOrderID: 2073. | 2017-12-04 15:59:10 *
Error validating request:-'bA' : cause - Please enter a valid security type. Internal Order ID: 2073. Service Order ID: 104. Symbol: CLF18-CLG18.FUT_SPREAD.NYMEX | 2017-12-04 15:59:10 *

The chart is getting the historic data and real time data for the symbol

There is nothing under Chart Settings>Symbol...Find....Futures Spreads ( SC Exchange Data )

I entered the symbol manually

The TWS has the data for the symbol
I have updated to the latest version of SC.

You will need to enter this order from the Trader Workstation software. Refer to this information here about futures spreads through Interactive Brokers:

They are not supported.
