Wrong free float market cap

Hi everyone! I was trying to get free float market cap for 3437.T stock and experienced strange numbers.

TR.FreeFloat reports around 460k shares, while TR.SharesFreeFloat - 6 mln.

# of shares outstanding is around 0.8 mln.

I also tried other options:
TR.CompanyMarketCap - 4 bln

TR.CompanyMarketCap(ShType=FFL) - 31 bln.

Same for TR.MarketCapLocalCurn

It would be good if you can advise on this. How it's possible to get free float market cap > market cap? How it's possible to get # of free float shares > # of shares outstanding?
Thanks.

@refinitkek
It looks like one of the figures (either the one returned by TR.FreeFloat or the one returned by TR.SharesFreeFloat) must be wrong.
This community forum is dedicated to software developers utilizing Refinitiv APIs, and it's not the best place to report data issue such as this one. The best resource for data issues or questions is Refinitiv Helpdesk, which you can reach by either calling the Helpdesk number in your country or by using Contact Us capability in your Eikon application. I would happily open a case with Refinitiv Helpdesk for this issue on your behalf, but unfortunately you chose to use a private email address to register on this forum, which effectively makes you anonymous to forum moderators, and I'm afraid we cannot open a case with the Helpdesk for anonymous users. So, please contact Refinitiv Helpdesk and report this data issue you found.
