Data limits for DFO vs. DSWS

I know that data retrieval via DSWS (Datastream Web Service) is limited to 10 million datapoints per month. However, I was wondering whether such a limit also exists for DFO (Datastream for Office)? So when I download data via the Datastream Excel Add-In do I also have to consider a limit of 10 million datapoints or is that not a problem since the request is generated manually?

Thanks in advance.

The 10 million datapoints monthly download limit only applies to Datastream Web Services. Datastream for Office is not subject to this limitation.
