How can I find out what my BLS API key is - using eview's 12 on two machines - old machine has the key installed, new machine doesn't.

There are two ways to find your API key (on your old computer):
1. Open the BLS database from EViews
On the database dialog click the button View->Preferences...
This will open the Preferences dialog that contains the key
Or
2. Find your EViews32.ini located in : C:\Users\your user name\AppData\Roaming\IHS EViews\EViews\
Right click on EViews32.ini and select Edit
The ini file contains a section [Database Preferences] look for BLS=ApiKey:
