Getting trades in Bloomberg

I need a way to check every trade that was executed in the given day in a terminal Bloomberg. The terminal it's going to run on has a blotter that shows exactly that. I've tried to use Bloomberg API, but it has mostly market data, such as subscription, RequestHistoricalData, etc... I couldn't find any functions for the tradebook itself.

What options do you think I have here?

Thanks in advance

Yeah, they weren't as responsive as I was waiting for... I'll try to download Trading System API Client 5.0 and see if it provides what I want... Do you have any kind of documentation for this?
