    Hello, I was just wondering if anyone had experience using Python to
    interact with Bloomberg. Ideally, I'd look to use Python to feed
    Bloomberg's OVML calculator with a list of inputs, and then use an
    additional program to grab the results of the calculator for each
    calculation, and pull them into another document, ideally an excel
    spreadsheet or alternatively a delimited .txt file.

    Any thoughts or ideas are very much appreciated. Thanks!

    Bloomberg has got SOAP for many (or all?) of its services.

    So maybe you could use SOAPpy to communicate with it.
