It’s my first time using the insider filing data from TFN. So I went through WRDS SAS sample program named iholding2.sas
just to get started. My question is related to the part of the program checking whether the evolution of sharesheld agrees with
the number of transacted shares in terms of direct holdings. I might be wrong, but the variable check_shares was expected to
be zero, right?

If the code is right, then the data needs to be cleaned. How do I proceed or is there any information that can help me clean the data other than
the Insider Data Feed Manual, which is very general?

Thanks!

hi Nan,

I have not used this dataset before.
I recommend posting a question on the wrds community. If you could follow up here what the solution is, that would be nice.

thanks,

Joost
