I want to retrieve historical data on index members and related weights from bloomberg in excel. however, the function objBloomberg.BLPGetHistoricalData does not accept the field reference "INDX_MEMBERS" or s.th. similar.
does anyone know how to circumvent this problem and how to download such data using excel / vba ?
Using "MEMB", I can only download the [b]current[/b] member list and weights. But I cannot download the [b]historical [/b] member lists and weights (e.g. over the last 12 months) since one cannot use "MEMB" with blph (history).
