From my current process, I would need to go from entering SEDOL into the eikonapir to retrieve the RIC, which will then be used with the package to retrieve the mnemonic. Is there a way to skip the eikonapir step and have the code recognize a SEDOL string and return the appropriate mnemonic?
I have done some testing with Datastream Test Service,
And notice that although passing "B14MG44" into Instrument input does not work for me, resulting in "$$ER: E100,INVALID CODE OR EXPRESSION ENTERED", passing
into Instrument gets back the result as expected.
Hope this helps
From my quick test, I can pass SEDOL to snapshotRequest method.
test <- mydsws$snapshotRequest(instrument = "2005973", datatype = c('NAME','ISIN','BETA','ESTAT', 'INDX','MNEM','ISINID','SECD'), requestDate = "0D")
The output is:
