Hello @Robby Stamper,

The Zero Available function (ZAV) provides a method to replace nulls with a numeric zero.

In Excel, so this function does not apply to Eikon Data API Python.

I am updating my answer to include the recommended approach, how to look this information up in Eikon Excel documentation.

Select FormulaBuilder tool from Eikon Excel:

In FormulaBuilder, select

  1. Instruments: MSFT.O
  2. Data Items: TR.TotalRevenue
  3. Next, on the right hand side, in Parameters & Quick Functions section, check "Treat As Zero If Not Available"
  4. Lastly, if you "Open in Expression Editor"


Should see expression

ZAV(TR.TotalRevenue(Period=FY0,Scale=6))

ZAV() being the result of "Treat As Zero If Not Available" quick function in Expression Builder.
