How can I get historical dividend yields for the entire company's history. As you can see in the below example, I am unable to get the dividend yield history prior to 2008.
Here is my use case.
I have a universe of a few hundred stocks and I would like to get the dividend yield for the entire history for each stock.
I used Eikon Excel to try to retrieve the TR.DividendYield before June 2008 and it returns the data starting from the end of May 2008.
So I guess that the data is available up to that period.

get_data() can get list of RIC as input so you can retrieve multiple RICs in one API call.
Hi chavalit.jintamalit. This company has been making dividend payments since the early 1990s(see below). So I wonder why eikon doesn't have this data? I'll contact the content helpdesk and in the mean time keep this open and see if anybody else can help me with this question.
