You can use =RSearch in Eikon Excel to retrieves a list of instruments based on the specified search criteria. For example:

=RSearch("EQUITY","search:Apple","NBROWS:1")

It returns AAPL.O. For more information regarding =RSearch in Eikon Excel, please refer to Thomson Reuters Eikon - Microsoft Office Help in Eikon Excel Help menu.

Moreover, to use RSearch with COM APIs for use in Microsoft Office, please refer to Tutorial 7 - Instrument Search - RSearch.

Using formula -

=RSearch("EQUITY","search:Apple","NBROWS:1")

I get the results -

No results were found matching your criteria.

Please try to wrap Apple in the single quotes.

=RSearch("EQUITY","Search:'Apple'","NBROWS:1")

I'm getting the same error with the single quotes as well

I suggest you raise this to Thomson Reuters Helpdesk by either calling the Helpdesk number in your country or by using Contact Us capability in your Eikon application.
