Why DS does not return ISIN, NAME or static data?

Up to 2 attachments (including images) can be used with a maximum of 512.0 KiB each and 1.0 MiB total.

Here are R codes (using RDatastream library):
> ds(user, stk,c("ISIN","ISINID"), date = "2019-01-10" )
StatusType    "Failure"                                          
StatusMessage "$$"ER", E100, INVALID CODE OR EXPRESSION ENTERED, U:IBM(ISINID)"

> ds(user, stk,c("P","VO"), date = "2019-01-10" )
StatusType    "Connected"              
StatusCode    "0"    


As seen, for same sec request: static data resulted failure, while time series worked!

For static datatypes please use following request:

mydsws <- dsws$new()

myData <- mydsws$snapshotRequest(instrument = c("U:F","U:BA"),

datatype = c("NAME","ISIN","ISINID"),

requestDate = "2019-01-10")
