Difference between TRDPRC_1.close and .close

Hi,

could you please explain the difference between TRDPRC_1.Close and simple .Close request field? I noticed, that TRDPRC_1 does not work for currencies, but works for indices. And simple .close works for both. Do I extract different data?

Example EURUSDFIXM=WM and .SPX

I am using RHistory API in VBA-Excel

Thank you!

Aleksei

Hello @aleksei.shvetsov,

Different exchanges and different instrument types carry different sets of fields.

As developer and Refinitiv Worspace/Eikon user, the quickest way to see

  • Which fields are populated for a specific instrument
  • And what values they carry

is Data Item Browser tool:

from my quick test, the two prices indeed differ

Often the description of the field is sufficient. However, in some cases, it is not sufficient, more in-depth information on content is required. In this case, the best approach for a customer is to open a content case on Refinitiv Helpdesk Online directly.

Hope this info helps?
