This is equivalent to BLP • BDH (Bloomberg Data History) for historical end of day and historical intra day data. This is equivalent to BLPH, BLPSH and BLPI • BDS (Bloomberg Data Set) for large data sets/ bulk data. This is equivalent to BLPB

Array information Automatic array creation will no longer be supported in this add-in. Excel cell locking rules will need to be applied. Cell referencing/ locking rules: =B6 : relative row and column reference =$B6 : column is anchored or absolute and row is relative =B$6 : row is anchored or absolute, column is relative =$B$6: Both column and row are anchored and absolute

31


1. BDP BDP (Bloomberg Data Point) returns the same data as the Market Data/Reference data option in the Data Wizard. This is static or real time current market data. It is the equivalent of the BLP formula from the previous add-in. Note: Previous automatic array creation when using multiple securities or fields is not permitted. Excel cell locking rules apply if using multiple fields/securities.

Syntax 1.One Security, One field: =BDP (security, field) •

Cell references when using one security and one field: =BDP(A2,B1) where A1 contains the security and B2 contains the field mnemonic

Literal references (implementation of quotation marks) =BDP(“goog equity”,”px last”)

2. One security, multiple fields •

Cell reference: The column must be locked =BDP($A2,B1)

Note: To lock the column holding the security, hit F4 3x. This locks the relative column.

32


Literal reference : Because automatic array creation is no longer supported, literal references with multiple fields will no longer work ie: =bdp(“ïbm equity, “px last, name, crncy”) is not a valid syntax

3. Multiple securities multiple fields: •

Cell reference: The relative row and column must be locked. =BDP($A2,B$1) Note: To lock the security hit F4 3x. This locks the relative column for the security. To lock the row with the field mnemonics hit F4 2x. This locks the relative row for the fields. You can now drag this across:

33


2. BDS BDS (Bloomberg Data Set) returns informational bulk data. It pulls in the same information as the Data Set option in the Data wizard. This replaces the BLPB formula. Syntax =BDS (security, field) Cell Reference: =BDS(A2,B1)

Literal Reference: =BDS(“goog equity”, “cie des bulk”)

34


3. BDH BDH (Bloomberg Data History) returns the historical data for a selected security or set of securities. This is the equivalent of the intraday and historical end of day options in the Data Wizard. It replaces the old BLPI, BLPSH and BLPH formulas Syntax =BDH (security, fields, start date, end date, [optional argument(s)]) ** Please see Appendix A for the optional parameters Required Arguments: • • • •

Security Field Start date (mm/dd/yyyy) End date (mm/dd/yyyy)

35


HISTORICAL TIME SERIES (equivalent of BLPH) There are two methods for entering arguments into the Excel spreadsheet, via a range, or via an absolute value. 1. Specifying optional arguments via a range: Syntax: =BDH(security, field, start date, end date, range of optional argument codes, range of values for optional arguments) In Figure Below:

#1 is the Range of optional arguments #2 is the Range of VALUES for the optional arguments

Example: =BDH(A2,B1,C1,D1,F1:F3,G1:G3) 1.

2.

5. Specifying optional arguments via an literal reference (using quotations): Syntax: =BDH(security, field, Start Date, End date, “optional argument = argument value”) Example: =BDH(security, field, Start Date, End date, “curr=GBP, Days=C, Sort=D”)

**Note: • The optional arguments can be specified in any order and have advanced options. For example the “Fill” argument has a custom option where any desired value can be chosen to display for non-trading days. For more information see Appendix A. • Although End Date is a required parameter, if you cell reference a blank cell for this parameter it will default until current. If you are doing a literal reference use a double set of quotes for this parameter to achieve the same outcome: “” • A BLPSH formula or a formula requesting one historical data point is achieved by using the SAME start and end date in the BDH formula

36


INTRADAY HISTORICAL TIME SERIES For historical intraday requests you must use “Barsz” or “BarTp” in the optional parameters to indicate a request for granular data. Just as with the previous BLPI formulas, only a specific set of fields are valid: OPEN, HIGH, LOW, LAST_PRICE, NUMBER_TICKS, VOLUME

1.

2.

1. Optional Arguments 2. Argument Values In the above example we are requesting opening tick ask data for 5 minute intervals from 2/22/2007 09:00-2/23/2007 16:00 (please see Appendix A for optional arguments and values) Syntax: =BDH(security, field, start date/time, end date/time, range of optional arguments, range of values for optional arguments) 1. Via a Range: =BDH(security, field, start date& time , end date & time, F1:F2, G1:G2) 2. Via literal referencing: =BDH(security, field, start date& time, end date& time, “barsz=5,bartp=a”)

Note: Other optional arguments such as Fill, Orientation and Per will work with the intraday requests. Please see appendix A for other valid optional arguments.

37


3. OVERRIDES Syntax: =BDP(Security, fields, input field, input value cell) **Note: Arrays will NOT be created automatically so cell anchoring is necessary 1. Cell referencing =BDP($A3,B$2,$C$2,$C$1) The above formula: 1. 2. 3. 4.

locks the column holding the security locks the row holding the fields creates an absolute lock for the input field creates an absolute lock for the input value cell

For only getting a value in one cell: =BDP(security, reactive field , input field(s), input value cell(s))

Because we only want to produce one value, we do not drag the formula across and therefore we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use any cell locking in the above formula shown in the fx toolbar in the above figure: =BDP(A3,B2,C2,C1)

38


Cell referencing with multiple input cells/values:

The formula from the above figure is: = BDP($A3,B2,$C$2:$D$2,$C$1:$D$1) Place your cursor in A3 and hit the F2 Key to see the placement of all the cells in the formula:

2. Literal referencing: Using the index weight override as an example (the index ticker is case sensitive): =BDP("BUD9 Corp","DUR_ASK","PX_ASK","100") Alternatively you can use the syntax: =BDP(Security, field, input field= input value) Example with one input field/value: =BDP("BUD9 Corp","DUR_ASK","PX_ASK=100") Note: using multiple reactive fields is not possible with the literal reference. However, you can use multiple input fields and input values. Example with twp input fields/values: =BDP("BUD9 Corp","DUR_ASK","PX_ASK=100,SETTLE_DT=20070102") Which is the same as the below formula with the alternative syntax: =BDP("BUD9 Corp","DUR_ASK", "PX_ASK, SETTLE DT","100, 20070220")

39


You can also do a combination of literal and cell referencing to derive the same data as in the above examples. See below:

Appendix B: ERRORS The errors created by the new add-in consolidate some of the errors from the previous software to make them more intuitive.

Error Code Descriptions The following list defined the new error codes and maps then to the old error codes. There might be certain situations with the new formulas where there was no corresponding error code with the old formulas. In that case, please follow these overriding principles: 1. #N/A Authorization – A permissioning issue exists 2. #N/A Invalid Field – A inapplicable field has been entered in a formula 3. #N/A Invalid Parameter – An invalid override was entered in a formula 4. #N/A Connection – The users has lost the connection to the back-end. 5. #N/A Time Out – The users request has timed out 6. #N/A Limit – A limit of some sort has been reached 7. #N/A N/A – A catch-all error code 8. #N/A Invalid Security – The security is not recognized 9. #N/A Real Time – An error occurred with a real-time request

This will be caused by one of two reasons - either the security has been spelled incorrectly or the yellow market sector key which should append the ticker has been omitted. THIS ERROR IS NO LONGER SUPPORTED. Indicates the user's request has timed out during processing. This is typically due to the intensive nature of the necessary calculations. Another reason could the number of fields within one request. This error indicates you have gone over the concurrent subscription limit of 500 securities for the derived real time fields for options. Indicates the user has exceeded the limitation of data download per user. This limit only applies to static data, not real-time streaming data. The request of data will be displayed until the limit is reached and then the error message #N/A Limit will be displayed with each subsequent request for both static and real-time data requests.

the limit is reached and then the error message #N/A Limit will be displayed with each subsequent request for both static and real-time data requests. The field is not applicable for the security. An example would be trying to retrieve the yield on a stock, or the dividend per share on a bond. Data for the specified derived field is not available. This error may also be caused where values stipulated for an overridable field are significantly different from what may be regarded as the 'normal range' of acceptable values. For example assigning the value of 1000 to a yield The data for the specified history, intraday or real time field is not available. An example of this is the New York Stock Exchange does not allow a delayed user to download any Bid & Ask data for NYSE listed securities. Error occurs exclusively with the BDH function when the user has requested the inclusion of Nontrading days, and specifically requested the 'filler' for the non-trading days to be #N/A N/A. The specified field is a numeric field that cannot be negative but the calculated value is negative. May occur when an excel generated date, e.g. =today(), is used within a BDH. THIS ERROR IS NO LONGER SUPPORTED. Exclusive to the BDH function where the value passed to the optional 'Filler' parameter is invalid. THIS ERROR IS NO LONGER SUPPORTED. This message indicates that Real Time VWAP fields do not support overrides. THIS ERROR IS NO LONGER SUPPORTED. Invalid override value has been entered for user input within a calculation override BDP statement. Exclusive to the BDH function where the value passed to the optional 'period' parameter is invalid. User is not permissioned to view the specific field requested, given the security and price provider the user has selected. This error will be returned where the fields requested require third party subscriptions, e.g. IBES fields. Exclusive to the BDH function where the value passed to the optional 'Sort' parameter is invalid. The security for which real time data is being requested is not being priced in real time. Typically occurs for bonds where the existing price provider is not pricing on an intraday basis. The security for which data has been requested is not recognized by Bloomberg. This will be caused by one of two reasons - either the security has been spelled incorrectly or the yellow market sector key which should append the ticker has been omitted. The specified security type is not among the valid security types (not ticker exchange nor SEDOL nor CUSIP). Exclusive to the BDH Function. This error

THIS ERROR IS NO LONGER SUPPORTED. Exclusive to the BDH function where the value passed to the compulsory parameter 'Start Date' is invalid, usually because it is not a valid date format or because it is a date set in the future. The request for the field has timed out. After a given period of time (usually 90 seconds) if there is no response from our database, this error will be displayed. It is symptomatic of an underlying communication error (usually caused by the bbcomm failing to make a connection). The security for which real time data was requested has not traded in more than thirty days. Occurs particularly where selected price providers are not actively pricing the security. An error for which there is no other programmed error handler.
