Hi,
  I am replicating the paper “Some Initial Evidence on the Role of Accounting Earnings in the Bond Market” by Easton et al (2007) but I am not sure how to merge compustat and FDIS, esp, they mentioned to have to merge mannually. Is there a SAS program to deal with the problem now?
  The link for the paper is following:

  Thanks!

hi KZ,

I am afraid I don’t know these datasets. It may be an idea to post this question at the ‘official’ wrds forum. If it isn’t too much trouble, could you please post the solution here as well?

thanks,

Joost
