This might be related to a similar open issue here

The following example works great

df = web.DataReader("tran_sf_railac", 'eurostat') df

But attempting to read any business demography statistics fails. For example

df = web.DataReader("bd_9ac_l_form_r2", 'eurostat') df

The following error is returned.

ValueError Traceback (most recent call last)
in ()
----> 1 df = web.DataReader("bd_9ac_l_form_r2", 'eurostat')

Using similar data from the so-called 'main tables', here works well.

For example, the following works well

df4 = web.DataReader("tin00142", 'eurostat')

I previously had lfsi_emp_a working, but now am getting this error. Any ideas?
