Hi,

I am using Bloomberg Anywhere API to pull data into excel. Some fields are real - time so they update automatically and for some fields (which are not real time) i need to hit refrest on the Bloomberg Ribbon. Is there a way to automate this? So maybe a VBA code which will hit refresh every 30 seconds.

Thanks,

or you can select auto refresh while creating BB wizard i.e. check auto refresh option while creating BB formula.

Some thing like this "=BRB("NZ1 Index","OPEN,HIGH,LOW,LAST_PRICE,VOLUME","12/18/2014 9:00:00 AM","","BarTp=T","BarSz=1","Dts=S","Sort=A","Quote=C","UseDPDF=Y","cols=6;rows=377")"

Where you can replace "NZ1 Index" with your Ticker.


Thanks
