What is the difference between the exchange codes ".F" and "=F"?

Im trying to get some quote data for various certificates, i.e A2M07X and DZ8TEH. In order to receive the data I use the Eikon Python API, especially the function get_data, where I create the RIC by transforming the SIN, i.e. from A2M07X to DEA2M07X.F. However, I do not know when to use ".F" and when to use "=F". What is the difference between these two exchange codes?

@ff I would suggest contacting your local Refinitiv support desk with questions on content, symbology and general product functionality (Eikon Menu > Help > Contact Us).

The rule of thumb is to use .F for equities and funds (almost always exchange data), = for forex, fixed income and money market.

@ff in addition, you can also try using symbology conversion API:

It did not recognize DZ8TEH though, for that Refinitiv support should help.
