Hey guys,

I am trying to replicate some results from a paper. In that regard i need to extract the same data from Compustat.
The problem is, that the data items from the paper, does not match the items from the WRDS-Compustat database.

I need the following data:

Common equity (Compustat item #60)
Preferred treasury stock (#227)
Preferred dividens in areas (#242)
Net income before extraordinary items (#237)
Dividens paid to common equity (#21)
Total assets (#6)

Is it possible to link the Compustat item #number to the WRDS-compustat database, in order to obtain the right data?

Jamil.
