Can I use the API to download a single column from a data feed?
You can download a single column from a time-series with a call using the column=n parameter, like this:
The above call gets just the closing price (column 4) for FB stock from the premium EOD time-series data feed.
Note that column 0 is the date column and is always returned. Data begins at column 1.
You can download a single column from a table with a call using the qopts.columns= parameter, like this:
The above call gets only the ticker column from the premium SEP data table.
