When you retrieve output from SIX Financial Information, it appears as follows:

d = 
    XRF: [1x1 struct]
     IL: [1x1 struct]
      I: [1x1 struct]
      M: [1x1 struct]
      P: [1x1 struct]

The instrument IDs are found in d.I, and the pricing data is found in d.P. The output for d.P.k appears like this:

ans = 


Convert the field IDs in d.P.k to their field names with the tkidtofield function:

d.P.k = tkidtofield(c,d.P.k,'market')

Load the file @tlkrs/tkfields.mat for a listing of the field names and their corresponding field IDs.
