Login to Reuters Eikon via VBA with username and password

Hi, is there any VBA code that can be used to login to Eikon with username and password programmatically instead of entering the username and password into the Eikon desktop application in the form of a popup?

I saw that this question has been asked quite a few years back but back then the answer was no.

Would like to check if there're any updates regarding the same question

As I know, users still need to sign in via the Eikon login page before using Eikon Excel VBA.

I think this will not be changed because Eikon Excel VBA is a legacy API.

You may consider using Refinitiv Data Platform APIs (REST API) instead which supports login via the code.
