Thomson Research only works fully with IE

Thomson Research only works correctly with the Internet Explorer (IE) browser versions 6 and 7 (and you have to get the username and password right).

Thomson Research is a good resource for analysts’ research reports, overview reports and company filings (annual reports).

When you login using the special database username and password you should get a screen with 4 tabs.
