I am using Rblpapi and trying to query the following:

bds("FN1 Comdty","FUT_CHAIN", overrides = "CHAIN_DATE=20170101")

However, I am getting the following error:

 Error in bds_Impl(con, security, field, options, overrides, verbose, identity) : 
 Request overrides must be named.

Overrides must have their value separately defined, try:

ovrd = c("CHAIN_DATE" = "20170101")
bds("FN1 Comdty","FUT_CHAIN", overrides = ovrd)
