Collected implied volatility using Eiklon Python package

I am trying to collect AUDCAD 1 month implied volatility using pyton's Eikon package.

ek.get_data('AUDCAD1MO=R', 'IMP_VOLT')

Here is the error returned.

( Instrument IMP_VOLT 0 AUDCAD1MO=R NaN, [{'code': 251658244, 'col': 1, 'message': "Error: Field 'IMP_VOLT' was not found in response for the instrument 'AUDCAD1MO=R'", 'row': 0}])

I am able to collect its implied volatility from excel function. What is the correct way to fetch the data?

You say you can retrieve what you need into Excel. What is the call you use in Excel?
Field IMP_VOLT does not exist for RIC AUDCAD1MO=R. RIC AUDCAD1MO=R provides several implied volatilities: bid volatility can be found in field "BID", ask volatility can be found in field "ASK", mid volatility can be found in field "PRIMACT_1".

The script returns implied volatility by using ek.get_data('AUDCAD1MO=R', 'BID'). Thanks Alex!
