To use Datastream, you need to access it in one of the computers in the LUISS Library.
- From the Start menu, locate Datastream/Advance 4.0 and launch it.
- To download data directly into Excel, you need to install first an Excel add-in. If the add-in is not already installed on the computer you are using, open Excel, choose the menu Tools/Add-ins. Click on ‘Browse’ and double click on AdvanceOffice.xla.
- It is extremely important that you close the connection with the Datastream server if you are not using it, because we are only allowed to have one connection at a time.
