The RSearch function in Excel is used to retrieve a list of instruments based on the specified search criteria. For example, it can be used to search for RICs that match the specified search criteria

The get_data method in Python is similar to the TR function in Excel which is used to retrieve real-time, fundamental, referential data, and time-series data. Therefore, it can be used to retrieve data of specific RICs.
