Bloomberg Professional

Published: 02/15/2006

Baker Library recently added a number of Bloomberg terminals and upgraded several to Bloomberg Professional. The most obvious advantage of Bloomberg Professional is that it facilitates downloading of data from Bloomberg directly into Excel spreadsheets. This download can be performed from a number of displays in Bloomberg, and also in Excel using the Bloomberg add-in to Excel. The principal uses of the Bloomberg add-in are to download tables of static data, such as current identifiers for large groups of tickers, and to download long time series data for one or more tickers. The data may be used only by HBS students, faculty, and staff, and for academic purposes. Contact James Zeitler for more information.
