bulk data field download from Bloomberg

Postby fhespeler » Thu Mar 28, 2019 1:48 pm

Hi, I am wondering whether there is the possibility to load information from bulk data fields from Bloomberg. So far when I attempt to do this via a fetch command I get the error message "Database Error: Bloomberg library error: 'Bloomberglp.Blpapi.InvalidConversionException: Cannot convert SEQUENCE to String.'."Is there a way around?

Unfortunately EViews cannot.

Can you however give a specific example and we will add it to our list of items to investigate?

A concrete example would be

fetch(d=bloomberg,link) vwehx us equity hb_rating_class_allocation

The field hb_rating_class_allocation is a bulk data field including two different subfields.

thanks for considering to resolve.
