Sure looks a mess. 

I am definitely not a -merge- expert. 

I have two very small suggestions. Others may be able to help
much more. 

1. The -destring- does nothing, every time. Forget it. 

2. The variables that are -long- in one dataset 
and -int- in another dataset are worrying. Identifiers 
that are more than 32740 cannot be held in an -int-.
