Enable Bloomberg excel add-in in embedded excel

Hi, may I ask how to let the Bloomberg excel add-in work in the embedded excel? The embedded excel was inserted into the page by selecting the availalbe macro called "Office Excel", and the Bloomberg excel add-in enables users to extract data from the Bloomberg Terminal using formulas like bdp=(...), bdh=(...), etc.

Currently, the fields with Bloomberg formulas are showing #NAME? on the embedded excel, and none of these fields is pulling data. May I also know if there is a work-around if the Bloomberg excel add-in cannot be directly enabled? Thank you very much!

The Excel is somewhat limited in what it can do. It is meant mainly to show stock Excel content and really only basic features at that. It will not be able to use the Bloomberg excel add-in.

I see, thanks Davin! If so, may I ask if there is any work-around that you could possibly know of?

Well, the first question I have would be what does the Bloomberg Excel add-in do?
