VBA on Layout

Hi Team,


Is it possible to run VBA in Layout- the replacement of old flex app? I have a client who is still using flex but it's already buggy. In the attached screenshot, his Print and Save as file commands are run by VBA. What happens is if she clicks on Print, it will export all her charts in a PDF format and print it out. Can we use Eikon API and do something like this in Layout?

Hi @Chrisma Joy.Salut

Please read this quick start guide.

The Eikon Data API(Python) allows users to retrieve data points from Eikon Desktop into their Python program.

The API alone only provides data points.

You can refer to some tutorials on how to visualize the data in GUI from this post.
