Missing fields for some ric codes

Hi,

I am trying to get fields(DSPLY_NAME and TRADE_DATE) for some of the instruments from Reuters.

For instance for Ric code “CIDKK6MD=” it should be „CIBOR DKK 6MD” but when I am calling reuters api “DSPLY_NAME” is not returned.

The problem does not exist for RICs types like CHFFIX=ST, JPYFIX=ST, etc.

Below you can see the list of fields for “CIDKK6MD=”. “DSPLY_NAME” is missing. It is output from StarterConsumer example.

[ 1] PROD_PERM 5126

[ 2] RDNDISPLAY 153

[ 4] RDN_EXCHID CPH (68)

[ 6] TRDPRC_1 -0.2667

[ 15] CURRENCY DKK (208)

[ 22] BID -0.2667

[ 23] BID_1 -0.2633

[ 24] BID_2 -0.2633

[ 53] TRD_UNITS 4DP (4)

[ 259] RECORDTYPE 241

[ 393] PRIMACT_1 -0.2667

[ 394] PRIMACT_2 -0.2633

[ 395] PRIMACT_3 -0.2633

[ 728] BCAST_REF "M-(EUR DK)"

[ 831] CTBTR_1 "DKK"

[ 836] CTB_LOC1 "COP"

[ 875] VALUE_DT1 4/21/2020

[ 876] VALUE_DT2 4/20/2020

[ 877] VALUE_DT3 4/20/2020

[ 995] GEN_TEXT16 "23/04/20"

[ 1001] GV2_TEXT "DKK"

[ 1003] GV4_TEXT "2W"

[ 1010] VALUE_TS1 9:0:4

[ 1011] VALUE_TS2 13:0:1

[ 1012] VALUE_TS3 9:0:4

[ 1080] PREF_DISP

[ 3263] PREV_DISP

[ 5357] CONTEXT_ID 3210

[ 6401] DDS_DSO_ID 12403

[ 6480] SPS_SP_RIC ".[SPSEBFL1"


Your help would be much appreciated.

Regards

Artur

Hi @artx

As mentioned the RFA API just returns the data it gets from the server - I have tried other realtime APIs and they also do not return DSPLY_NAME field either - which means that field is not available from the realtime feed/service that you are consuming from.

The RtGet method is part of the Eikon Excel interface and Eikon has access to other (non-realtime) data sources - which could explain why you can get the 'DISPLAY NAME" using RtGet.

Hi @artx

The RFA API will pass to you whatever data (fields etc) it receives from the server. If a field is missing then this would be because it is not available for that particular RIC

I have subscribed to the above RIC with our desktop application Eikon as well as another API and can confirm that DSPLY_NAME is not present in the payload for CIDKK6MD=

If you believe this to be incorrect or require an explanation as to why it is not available, then I recommend you raise an 'I believe content is incorrect or incomplete' type Ticket from MyRefinitiv and a Content specialist will be able to assist.

Thanks for the quick answer. That's what I was afraid. We have another existing solution where we use excel formulas to get reuters data and =RtGet("IDN","CIDKK6MD=","DISPLAY NAME") formula returns the value so I am wondering why we can't see this in RFA API. Do you have any idea?
