Hello Statausers,

I have the problem that merging two datasets where the matches based  
in the identifier ought to merge, as the identifier is identical in  
the master and using dataset, some observations merge with _merge=3  
and others with _merge=5 do not.

What could be the problem that the master data is disagreeing (_merge=5)?

Kind regards

Pascal Stock
