Dear all,

I have access only to the CRSP MFDB without FMLinks
Could you please tell me how can I eliminate multiple share classes in the monthly returns dataset?

Many thanks in advance.

Best,
Nabi

Hi Joost,

Thank you so much for the answer. I will try with both cusip and company names.
Do you think I will get the same outputs as if I use the wficn in MFlinks?

Regards,
Nabi

hi Nabi,

You’re welcome smile

I am not familiar with MFlinks. It seems you could try if it is the same?

Best regards,

Joost

Hi,

I’m trying to group multiple share classes by fund names but unfortunately I failed to group them correctly.
Has any one of you worked on the same problem?  do you have any SAS code?

Many thanks in advance smile
