Hi,

I am looking at the files available on the WRDS server via FileZilla FTP. I would like to understand better what each folder corresponds to. Is there a description corresponding to each path available?

For instance, I would like to find and access the link to CRPS annual equity folder (daily and monthly stock files). There are several files that start by “crsp” as described in the screenshot that I enclose:
- crsp.notlocal
- crsp.old
- crspq
- crspamp

Which is the right one? Thanks a lot in advance!

Hi,

To find out the path on the server (/wrds/etc), look at the dataset info. For example: https://wrds-web.wharton.upenn.edu/wrds/tools/variable.cfm?library_id=129
Chars, Funda, etc are in: /wrds/comp/sasdata/naa (first line, blue)

Let me know if this works,

Joost
