Locating data type(s)

Hi,


We use the datastream data loader (FTP) service

When using the datastream navigator to locate a mnemonic, we also need to know which data type to request.

e.g. for Mnemonic "UKCONPRCF" we use data type "ESA"

Using the navigator, how do we find the data type, where can I find "ESA" for mnemonic "UKCONPRCF"?

From the screenshot, UKCONPRCF is in the Economics category. Therefore, you can search the data types under the Economics category.
