I would like to retrieve bond characteristics (bond type, coupon type etc.) for corporate bond ISINs using the Bloomberg Excel Addin.

I tried =BDP("DE0001848083", "COUNTRY") which did not work. ("COUNTRY" is just an example - I don't know if this field really exists).

What is the correct way to retrieve this data?

You need to specify that the code is an ISIN:

=BDP("DE0001848083 ISIN", "COUNTRY")

should work as expected.
