Does anyone know what time the Bloomberg Open Symbology precanned files are updated every day? I am planning on upating my view of them at 9 AM EST every morning. Furthermore, will the files for equities have any IPOs from the day listed?

I spent about an hour trying to find the answer to your question, as I am really curious about Bloomberg Open Symbology. Best I could find was that they ARE updated once daily, but no specifics. – Ellie Kesselman Sep 13 '11 at 20:55
What is the concern? I pay for Bloomberg Back office files and usually ipos are listed well in advance – Michael WS Sep 23 '11 at 2:21
