the forward rate data downloaded in excel is different from which shows in datastream navigator

from the first photo, we can see the latest value is 1.2769, and from the second photo, we can see the value in 31/8/2022 is 1.162, this is a big difference. so I am very doubt.

thank you, but how can I get it from datastream navigator? I find the series in navigator, and use the new request table in excel to download this value(actually I need hundreds of number and I just find that the data I get in navigator is different from the value the navigator's interface show to me)

the set of new request table is shown to you.new-request-table.png

thank you very much, and as a new user I have a question, for example, if I get the value of forward exchange rate at 02/09/2022, 1.2768 in your picture. I don't know that this value represent today people make a prediction about the time point after a month, actually 02/10/2022; or represent past prediction about today, i,e, people make a prediction at 02/08/2022 that spot rate of 02/09/2022 is 1.2768.


could you please help me? if you can, I will appreciate it very much!
