Is there a manual available for I/B/E/S Guidance where I can see what they have in terms of data availabilty? In particular, I would be interested in how detailed data is on the different kinds of guidance ranges (I think the item should be range_desc, but I’m not sure)...

I would expect the manual to have only descriptions of the data fields, not much about the contents.

range_desc of “01” (“between”) is most common, followed by “02” (“about”).

best regards,

Joost

Thanks for your quick answer! Do you maybe know where I can the (full) descriptions of the data fields? (so basically the missing <1% wink)

hi,

I am a bit reluctant to give too much details since it is proprietary data!

best regards,

Joost

Oh ok, i didn’t know that the data descriptions are proprietary, but I’ll simply try to contact Thomson about that. Thx!
