Datastream provides extensive current and historical coverage of fundamental data for international equity, bond, commodities, foreign exchange and futures markets. Macroeconomic statistics and company accounts for listed companies are also available.
Datastream data can be accessed either through an Excel add-in or through a stand alone application, DSWindows. However, the College of Business only has one account. If a user is unable to retrieve data or log on to the Datastream service, another user is already accessing the service.
In addition, Thomson Financial has deployed a web interface that can be accessed at: http://nav3.datastream.com/Navigator/
