FactSet’s ExcelConnect is a database used researchers working on analysts’ forecasts.It is only available on specific PCs in the Eddie Davies Library. Ask at the enquiry desk if you are unsure.
There is a brief library guide for ExcelConnect on the library section of the MBS Intranet (which we plan to update soon). As this does not cover getting data for multiple companies, I have quickly put together this document :
FactSetEC-estimate-manycos (accessing detailed estimated for many companies)
FactSet ExcelConnect has a nice user interface and is easy to use in its “Equity” mode when getting data for a single company. It is getting data for a whole set of companies that is a little more tricky.
