I try to use RBloomberg to get the dividend for IBM. However, 
blpGetData(conn, "IBM EQUITY", field="EQY_DVD_HIST_ALL",
doesn't work. It returns

(10/02/08 14:46:36)               NA

I have to used 
blpGetData(conn, "IBM EQUITY", "EQY_DVD_SH_12M_NET",

The second one only gives the sum of dividend from the previous 12 months.
Anyone knows how to get the dividend histroy directly?
