How to handle blank data in the field entry

I am trying to get details of cusip "313586RC5" with RFA8 Java. I can see a field entry (fid = 69, name = COUPN_RATE) returning a blank value. fhlb-ofcomroaming-profilesvbollinendesktop313586rc.png

But if you google it for that cusip I can see coupon rate as "0.000%"

http://www.fanniemae.com/syndicated/documents/mbs/debtmarketing/debtoutstanding/noncallabledebtoutstanding.csv

Is this issue with API or how to handle this situation.

All COUPN_RATE are the same value which is blank.

0.0 Real/price fields returned by MarketData interfaces in RFA 7.6 means blank while -0.0 means zero. This is the IDN style(legacy feed/MarketData interfaces). Hence, 0.0 should be treated as blank and -0.0 should be treated as zero in MarketData interfaces.

While Elektorn feed/OMM interfaces in RFA8, blank means blank and 0.0 means zero.

Hello,

This fid 69, COUPN_RATE, comes blank from Elektron data feed, i.e. blank is the value that is published for 313586RC5=TWEB.

Neither RFA nor your subscriber app have an issue displaying a non-blank value as blank.

However, there is a discrepancy between data feed value and Fannie Mae site value.
