bulk download by date
I'm looking for a way to download the database , but filter the data by date , for example , get just data from the last 2 years (to keep the file smaller) . Is that possible ? I couldn't find this option anywhere.
this is not yet supported unfortunately.
Are the files too large to first load them in Python for example and cut the unneeded periods out there?
I'm working of the file now - filtering the time periods in python .
I'm using your python parser and then going over the lines and taking only lines from the last 2 years (using the xls writer I sent you)
It takes about 30 minutes to go over the entire DB and only write relevant lines to xlsx.
using 10GB of RAM in the process.
I can live with that, but it would be nice to have this feature as right now about 95% of the data I'm downloading/processing is stuff I don't need.
My bad - the filtering wasn't working - so it was including all data - I didn't notice the format of the time period string is different when using extended fundamental vs. regular fundamentals .
I'll fix that and redo the xlsx build process.
The time period string is different? ok weird, I'll take a look, I mean it should be the same format.
it's daily vs. quarterly - i.e. 31-12-2016 vs Q4-2016.
