# Bloomberg Python Question - How do you access PRTU via python?

I am having some trouble using python to access Bloomberg as I cant find much documentation. All I really need to do is a simple lookup of dates in the PRTU function of Bloomberg, PRTU via a python program.

Can anyone help me out with this or point me in the right direction?

Thanks for any and all help!

• I am also trying to access PRTU but I do not see how neither with excel add_in or python. Can you please update this question if you happened to find a solution. – A.david Feb 16 '18 at 9:16

I'm guessing your best bet would be to get setup with an SFTP account with Bloomberg.

Just contact your rep to get the ball rolling. We upload 10's of protfolio's 10's of times a day.

I don't think there is an actual api for pulling data from PRTU as I'm not sure exaclty what you'd pull other than the last upload time.

• Thats exactly what I am trying to pull. We've had some issues with data not getting uploaded/downloaded and I'm just trying to automate these small things. Ill try contacting my rep again. Thanks chollida! – CodinglyClueless Oct 23 '15 at 20:48
