Re: Loading data via API connection

Robert,

Thank you for responding to my inquiry. I have been to that page and spoken with 2 different representatives from the BLS. I hit a brick wall with that solution; I am a registered user and I should be able to connect at least 50 times, but I received this error message on the first or second attempt.

Also, there's no sign-in on either side. There's no place in Qlik for me to put my BLS user credentials. There isn't a place on the BLS website, either, honestly. I have no idea how to access the data. When I spoke with the BLS, they said I should reach out to Qlik. When I speak with the reps from Qlik, they say I should reach out to the BLS.

Did you reach your limit?

No- I only attempted twice. I dont understand how BLS is tracking my attempts when I have not given my credentials; I think that may be part of the issue..
