Unable to download equity indices data using Datastream

Hi,

I'm trying to download last 2 years of Argentina-DS Market equity index data from Datastream add-in for excel.

Below is the formula I've entered

=@DSGRID("TOTMKAR","DSRI;RI","-2Y","","D","RowHeader=true;ColHeader=true;DispSeriesDescription=false;YearlyTSFormat=false;QuarterlyTSFormat=false;Sym=RIC","")

and I'm getting the below error in excel cell.

I'm unable to understand what is the issue here? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

From my checking, DSRI is an invalid data type for TOTMKAR.

               "DataTypeValues": [
                    {
                        "DataType": "DSRI",
                        "SymbolValues": [
                            {
                                "Currency": "AP",
                                "Symbol": "TOTMKAR",
                                "Type": 0,
                                "Value": "$$ER: E100,INVALID CODE OR EXPRESSION ENTERED"
                            }
                        ]
                    },

You can directly contact the DataStream support team via MyRefinitiv for confirmation.
