Accessing historical lipper data from R

Hello, I have been using the get_timeseries function and the get_data function in r but have not seemed to be able to pull Lipper historical data. Any ideas?

I can get the daily close values of Lipper RICs by using the following code.

data_frame3 = get_timeseries(list("LP68060257"),list("*"),"2021-10-01T00:00:00","2021-10-29T00:00:00","daily")

The output is:

For other fields, you can use the Data Item Browser tool to list all available fields. Then, you can verify if those fields support historical data by using the Parameters tab.

The above picture shows that the CF_CLOSE field doesn't support historical data.

Moreover, you can contact the Eikon support team via MyRefinitiv and ask for =TR Eikon Excel formulas that can be used to retrieve the required data. If the formulas are available, we can apply them to the Eikon Data API.
