   Notes: Read this before you run this sample.               
          The database resides in the ets/sasmisc folder. You 
          must copy the database to a writeable folder before 
          using it. Then define your Windows system environment
          variable, DATASRC_DATA, to the path of your
          writeable folder containing
          the csqibm.dat file. 
          To assign a fileref to the external file to be processed,
          use the following filename statement:

filename compstat "%sysget(DATASRC_DATA)csqibm.dat" recfm=s370v lrecl=4820 blksize=14476;     

filename compstat "%sysget(DATASRC_DATA)csqibm.dat" recfm=s370v
   lrecl=4820 blksize=14476;
proc datasource filetype=cs48qibm  infile=compstat
                out=stocks outby=company;
   keep data56 qftnt14;
   rename data56=comstock  qftnt14=ftcomstk;
   label  data56='Common Stock'
          qftnt14='Footnote for Common Stock';
   range  from 1990:4;


/*- add company name to the out= data set    */
data stocks;
   merge stocks company( keep=dnum cnum cic coname );
   by dnum cnum cic;
