Go to Databases > Factiva.
In Factiva, go to the Companies/Markets tab > Quotes > Symbol Lookup.
Type the company name to get its RIC.
- Or you can search for RIC here http://www.reuters.com/finance/stocks/lookup
Input the company name and you will see a column titled 'Symbol'. There might be more than one symbol. The one in the format of [a-Z]+.[a-Z]+ will be the RIC of that company. An example MSFT.O for Microsoft on Nasdaq.
