Thoughts on Bloomberg Excel API

Is there anything that Bloomberg can do that CapIQ’s add-in can’t do? If you were building a self-populating model, would you pick one over the other? I’m very familiar with CapIQ but novice to Bloomberg so wanted to get some of ya’lls thoughts.

CapIQ is more equity based. Whilst for bloomberg, you can extract items such as zero rates, OIS, etc… which isn’t available on CapIQ. While CapIQ addon is good, I find it quite brilliant, there are areas which Bloomberg addon is more intuitive.
