"Just a quick one to say I'm very impressed so far :) The documentation for developers is excellent and I've quickly managed to get an app written to do historical downloads. The system is very robust and pretty quick considering the extent of data that's available. The support guys have been very helpful too, in combination with the forums it's been plain sailing so far!" - Comment from Adam

Hello,

today I requested OptionChain for BBD and my application failed on parsing Option name, as some of the returned options had different format.

BBD1918A15 - correct one
BBD11918A15.45 - not correct.

Can you please advice me, if it is an issue on your side, or when this could occurs?

Thank you,
Ondrej

Good morning,

Sorry I missed this, but this happens when a corporate action, like a split occurs.

You can see a list of the underlying option roots for a given item in the fundamental message in the "Root Option symbol" field. In this case, it shows BBD and BBD1. If there was another action done, a BBD2 root value would be created.

Tim
