Hello R-Expert,

 Recently I was using "RBloomberg" package in R-2.2.0 in Windows (XP) machine installing the required packages. I checked one example using blpGetData guided in corresponding help file:

conn <- blpConnect()

edb <- blpGetData(conn, "ED1 Comdty", "PX_LAST", start=chron("1/1/06"), end=chron("1/31/06"))  

I got error message as following:

The error message: Error in any (origin (chronDate)! = orig): couldn't find function "origin".

Then I installed package "calibrate". I tried the same example ignoring "start=chron("1/1/01")" and end=chron("1/31/06").The result was:  

ED1 Comdty PX_LAST


But when I tried the same with "start=chron("1/1/01")" installing the package "calibrate". I got followings catching edb:    

ED1                             Comdty           PX_LAST

(02/23/06 17:53:57)                            NA



I want to get all values of PX_LAST within 1/1/01 and 1/31/06 instead of getting NA on the date I am working.Any help regarding this is appreciated in advance.
