Price Unit in cent or in dollars

How can I know whether the return data I get from refinitiv ElektronTimeseries API is in cent or in dollars.

For example, when i query Universal_Close_Price for RIC Chain 0#W+, the unit of the price is cent, while if I query Universal_Close_Price for RIC Chain 0#CL+, the unit is in dollars.

You can use the "Currency Code" field. The request looks like this:

{
  "ExtractionRequest": {
    "@odata.type": "#DataScope.Select.Api.Extractions.ExtractionRequests.ElektronTimeseriesExtractionRequest",
    "ContentFieldNames": [
      "Instrument ID",
      "RIC",
      "Open",
      "High",
      "Low",
      "Last",
      "Volume",
      "VWAP",
      "Number of Price Moves",
      "Trade Date",
      "Currency Code"
    ],
    "IdentifierList": {
      "@odata.type": "#DataScope.Select.Api.Extractions.ExtractionRequests.InstrumentIdentifierList",
      "InstrumentIdentifiers": [
        {
          "Identifier": "0#W+",
          "IdentifierType": "ChainRIC"
        }
      ],
      "ValidationOptions":{
          "AllowHistoricalInstruments": true
      }
    },
    "Condition": {
      "ReportDateRangeType": "Range",
      "QueryStartDate": "2021-05-01",
      "QueryEndDate": "2021-05-20"
    }
  }
}

The output is:

Instrument ID,RIC,Open,High,Low,Last,Volume,VWAP,Number of Price Moves,Trade Date,Currency Code
0#W+,W615E2,,,,,,,,2021/05/03,USc
0#W+,W615E2,,,,,,,,2021/05/04,USc
