I am using Visual Basic within Excel to run a Bloomberg BLP function that tells me the CUSIP of a security.  Within Excel VB I am testing for any N/A's prior to closing.  My problem is that the code only works for a small set of securities.  If I try it with a large file it appears the BLP function does not run/update any of the securities within the file.  Interestingly if I input a message box at the start of the code the BLP function/VB code runs fine after clicking on "ok" on the message box.  If I remove the message box the BLP functions does not seem to run.  As mentioned at the start if there only a few rows of data the code runs fine.

I have taken a look at a few of the other posts on the site regarding BLP/Excel in terms of timers, etc. but I have the same results as explained above....

Thanks in advance.
