When I first announced that SFU researchers had access to S&P Capital IQ (aka "CapIQ") last summer, I mentioned that the account registration process had to take place while on campus... after which remote access would be possible.
Most people have been able to register and access their CapIQ accounts without any issues, but we've encountered enough glitches that I thought some more detailed instructions might help...
I'm sure that many of you have already registered your personal account in our newest financial database: S&P Capital IQ. [...]
And if you've registered, then you've probably started exploring the web interface to see what sorts of data you can find and export... and you might have even watched some of these videos to be sure you are getting the most out of the database...
But have you installed the Excel Add-in part of the database yet?
For those who missed it, we introduced a powerful new database earlier this week: S&P Capital IQ!
In the initial announcement I promised there would be follow-up blog posts highlighting CapIQ's features and functions. I certainly do plan to write such posts later this summer, but I thought I'd start with a note about S&P's support & training videos since so many people are now scrambling to learn the database.
