Use API to pull daily/weekly xls and xlsx reports

I am looking into using Eikon API (any language is fine, .NET preferable) to pull reports out of Reuters.

Data that can be pulled into excel already is fine but there are number of reports which cannot be pulled in excel directly and require regular download of xls, xlsx files from Reuters GUI by pressing download/export buttons. (Such as floating storage, trade flows, tanker congestion etc..)

Is there a way to automate pulling these reports through any of Reuters API's?

Not sure if this is obvious or have been answered but i was unable to find any information on this while searching through posts.

Unfortunately not, all static C&E reports will have to be downloaded manually.

For the rest of the data you can use either the COM API, or if you are after only real-time and time series, .NET API would fit the purpose.

Hi Zhenya, what shipping data can we retrieve via Eikon Python API in general?

Are there any sample codes?
