List of dates and times of news event from economic monitor exported via Excel

Hi, I would like to receive a list of the dates and times of the news events. For example, I want to receive all the dates and times when the US CPI (USCPI=ECI) is released in chronological order, in fact as it is presented in the economic monitor.

For instance:

10.08.18; 14:30

13.09.18,14:30

11.10.18,14:30

14.11.18, 14.30

12.12.18, 14.30

Unfortunately, the economic monitor only displays these value from 2016. I am searching for the dates starting in 2005.

I am planning to get this data via Excel. I tried to get this with Excel, like RHistory combined with ECI_ACT_DT. The problem is when I type in ECI_ACT_DT it only displays the date from the last event but I want the full list of dates and times.

1) Is there a function in Excel to receive it?

If this should not be working, is there a way to receive it via .NET connection?

2) If yes, which method delivers date and times to my desired RIC

Thanks a lot for your help!

As far as I can see the history of dates and times of economic data releases is not available outside of Economic Monitor app, and the deep history you're looking for is not available anywhere in Eikon. You may want to verify this with Refinitiv Helpdesk, which you can reach by calling the Helpdesk number in your country or by using Contact Us capability in your Eikon application.
