 Practical tips:

 Use your SDU login to log into the computers. At the moment, you have to write SDU\ in front of your username.


If you have not searched Bloomberg before, you need to create your own Bloomberg login once you have opened the database. Please download only the data you are sure that you need. Only a limited amount of data can be downloaded each month.
