I am populating a data set with historical data and instead of deleting and re-pulling each quarter, i was hoping to only pull any values which have been updated since the previous date I pulled data. I think ACTIV_DATE makes sense based upon the description but looking for input and ideas. Thanks
ACTIV_DATE is from the "realtime" dataset.
So I think this is not a field you are looking for.
If you are using get_timeseries, you have timestamp in the result dataframe already.
If you are using get_data, it depends on the field you are retrieving the data.
Some of them also provide historical and timestamp.
You can use "Data Item Browser" to check the field parameters.
