Data Download Limits

Each Wind terminal has a weekly download limit that is enforced by Wind Info. When the terminal is at its weekly limit, you will see an error message when loading data in Wind:

"The amount of statistical data extraction has exceeded the limit."

The data limits will automatically reset after 7 days (1 week) or 1 day depending on the module. Please inform the library staff when the terminal has reached its limit.
