I require the R EikonAPI command to get the values of this econommic index: aSBWOGDPF/C The following command returns NAs: get_timeseries(rics = list("aSBWOGDPF/C"), fields = list("ECONOMIC.Value","ECONOMIC.Timestamp"),"2012-01-01T15:04:05","2016-01-10T15:04:05","yearly") Thanks
The get_timeseries function can only retrieve the default view (OHLC) of RHistory.
It is unable to historical data in the Economic Indicator category.
You may need to verify if the same data is available via the =TR Excel formula. If yes, we can use the get_data method to retrieve the data.
I also found that this historical data is available in the Datastream.
