Is there a solution to access the APIR code identifier on Eikon

Hi, I'm trying to solve the problem of looking up the idendifier codes such as RIC, ISIN on EiKon for a given intrument specified with its APIR code? I tried get_data(instruments=['APIR code'], filed='TR.RIC'...), it doesn't work for this case. Is there another way to get access to the APIR code on Eikon?

I don't think that Eikon Data API supports APIR codes. You may contact the Eikon Excel support team via MyRefinitiv to verify it.

I found that you can use the Fund Screen App (FSCREEN) in Eikon to Convert APIR to Lipper.

For example, I have the following APIR codes.

ADV0056AU
ADV0053AU
AET0002AU

Then I imported this list to FSCREEN and then generated a report. The output looks like this:

Next, I used these RICs with Eikon Data API to get ISINs.

For more information regarding FSCREEN, please contact the Eikon support team via MyRefinitiv.
