Why do some funds have a PCTCHNG & Total Return whilst others have just PCTCHNG and others have neither? When pulling through from the Python Data API

I can see that some funds do not have PCTCHNG, or Total Return or either - why is this? Is there anything that all funds will definitely have with regards to performance/return?

Used

ek.TR_Field('PCTCHNG'), ek.TR_Field('TR.TotalReturn')

I preferably want to pull in a daily total return for each fund. (This needs to be consistent across all instruments).
