Qualitative Data Time Series Eikon

Is there a way to pull a time series for qualitative fields for individual RICs? For example, there is a field that I'm interested in TR.CEOBoardMember, which is a qualitative data field. Is there a way to pull a time series of this datapoint (ie so I could see if this has always been the case, or when it changed etc) from the API?

Hi @scott.curry,

If the particular datafield in the Data Item Browser shows a series checkmark, then there is timeseries data available for it.

Using it in python yields:

>> df,err = ek.get_data('IBM.N', ['TR.CEOBoardMember', 'TR.CEOBoardMember.Date'], {'SDate': 0, 'EDate': -5, 'Frq': 'FY'})

  Instrument CEO Board Member                  Date
0      IBM.N             True  2020-12-31T00:00:00Z
1      IBM.N             True  2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
2      IBM.N             True  2018-12-31T00:00:00Z
3      IBM.N             True  2017-12-31T00:00:00Z
4      IBM.N             True  2016-12-31T00:00:00Z
5      IBM.N             True  2015-12-31T00:00:00Z
