Where can I see how many "subfields" a TR field has?

Hello everyone,

I'd like to know how many "subfields" a TR field has. For instance, for calling TR.TotalReturn, I can also call TR.TotalReturn.calcDate or TR.TotalReturn.Date. Where can I see how many of these "subfields" are available for a given TR field? Is it documented anywhere?

Thanks for your time!

You can find it in Eikon app called Data Item Browser or in Eikon Excel Formula Builder wizard. Find the field you're interested in, then on the right hand side of the dialog box switch from Description to Parameters tab and see the drop-down for the Output parameter.
For more info on using Data Item Browser or Formula Builder for metadata discovery see the following tutorial
