So I was using's DatastreamDSWS2R's timeSeriesRequest and I had tried to retrieved some historical data for a few time series (eg XMUJ (NAV) and XMUJ (RI))
My code is:
example <- mydsws$timeSeriesRequest (instrument = df.tickers, startDate = "BDATE', endDate = sys.Date(), frequency = "D")
df.tickers being the column which contains all my tickers for DSWS to retrieve their historical time series.
So the result turned out well, except for the fact that columnnames are distorted and replaced the brackets (eg in XMUJ (NAV) into dots (XMUJ..NAV.).
Anyone knows what's the problem or is this endemic?
