Retreiving fundamental data from IB API

Hi, I'm trying to retrieve fundamental data using IB Java API with the following code snippet

                Contract contract = new Contract();
		contract.m_symbol = "ANZ";
		contract.m_currency = "AUD";
		contract.m_secType = "STK";
		contract.m_exchange = "SMART";
		client.client().reqFundamentalData(43, contract, "Financial Statements");
where client.client() is EClientSocket

And i receive the following error message:

Error id=43 code=430 msg=We are sorry, but fundamentals data for the security specified is not available.Missing reportType

I can confirm that my set up of the API has been correct (I can submit an order via the API). Also I have subscribed to Reuters fundamental data and I can view them in TWS.

Anyone may give me a hand in how to resolve this issue please?
