Extract announcement date of bond issuance in EKON API?

Hi,

I am trying to extract the announcement date of new bond issuance.

I can see it on the screen, but I am not successful with extraction, although I am using the fields name from Quote app in Eikon:

fields=['TR.RIC','TR.FirstAnnouceDate','TR.AnnouceDate']

bonds, err = ek.get_data('list(LIST)',fields)

Thanks!

Hi @AleksandarPetreski

Please note that you have a typo in your API call.

TR.FirstAnnounceDate (you missed an 'n')

This code works:

Hi @AleksandarPetreski

Quick tip: click on the small icon on the bottom left of DIB screen to copy the field formula to clipboard.


Cheers :)
