Data access and reports

This page is to assist users with the reporting and data access functions of the DMO’s website. If you are trying to extract a large amount of data and the page 'times out' try extracting the data in smaller chunks - for example apply smaller date ranges.


Some reports offer the option of selecting data for individual gilts. To choose individual gilts you will need to:

  1. Highlight “All”.
  2. Click on the “up arrow” button.
  3. Select the gilt(s) to appear in the report. To select more than one gilt hold down “Ctrl” key at the same time as selecting the gilts.
  4. Click on the “down arrow” button.
