Have you installed the Bloomberg Excel Add-in?

If installation was successful but the file does not appear after downloading:

Press Alt+D (or the gear icon) for Settings menu > Setup > Edit Download Setup > Modify to c:/Temp to download to a temporary folder and click OK

Otherwise, diagnose and repair Excel plug-in.

  1. Close Excel completely
  2. Go to Start > All Programs > Bloomberg > API Environment Diagnostic
    [Note: if you do not see this option, go to Start > Run (or "Search" if using Windows Vista or Windows 7 and paste the following file path: C:\Blp\API\Office Tools\bxladiag.exe]
  3. When the API Environment Diagnostic tool appears, select "Start." Should any red icons appear, click the "Repair" button
  4. Re-open Excel

  1. You reached the maximum daily download limit. I think it's 500,000 items, reset daily at midnight New York time.
