How to retrieve interim IBES data

Hi everyone,

Could you please let me know how to retrieve the interim estimates data using Eikon API. More specifically, I would like to reconstruct the table below.

I was able to get yearly data using the following R code, but do now know what parameters should be changed to get the semi-annual data.


get_data(list('BHP.AX'),
               list('TR.EPSMean.date',
                    'TR.EPSMean.fperiod',
                    'TR.EPSActSurprise',
                    'TR.EPSActValue',
                    'TR.EPSMean',
                    'TR.EpsSmartEst',
                    'TR.EpsPreSurprise',
                    'TR.EpsPreSurprisePct',
                    'TR.EPSMedian',
                    'TR.EPSHigh',
                    'TR.EPSLow',
                    'TR.EPSStdDev',
                    'TR.EPSActSueScore',
                    'TR.EPSNumIncEstimates'),
               list('Scale'='6', 'SDate'='0', 'EDate'="FY-5", 'FRQ'='FY', 'Curn'='USD', 'Period'="FY1"))


Thank you very much for your help!

Hi @pod4 ,


You can use the Code Creator app in Eikon/Workspace to have a look at available parameters. In your case, you seem to be looking into changing the 'FRQ' parameter; it can take several values, as per the below:

You can find similar parameter help in the Data Item Browser application in Eikon/Workspace.
