Hi there, Can anyone help me with the following problem? I have two data sets. The first one is as follows Data 1 fid fname newid fid= firm's id 0 A 1 1 B 2 fname= firm's name 2 C 3 3 E 4 4 F 5 5 G 6 6 H 7 7 I 8 8 J 9 9 M 10 10 N 11 11 Q 12 12 P 13 13 R 14 14 S 15 The second one looks like as follows Data 2 fid n_fid dist n_fid= nearby firm's id 0 1 .04 dist= distancs between fid 0 & n_fid 0 2 .03 0 3 .1 0 4 .09 0 5 .05 0 6 .07 0 7 .08 0 8 .06 Now I would like them to be merged/combined in a way that would yield the following output. fid n_fid dist fname newid n_fname n_newid 0 1 .04 A 1 B 1 0 2 .03 A 1 C 2 0 3 .1 A 1 E 3 0 4 .09 A 1 F 4 0 5 .05 A 1 G 5 0 6 .07 A 1 H 6 0 7 .08 A 1 I 7 0 8 .06 A 1 J 8 (n_fname= name of nearby firms, n_newid= newid of nearby firms) Basically, I need to have the n_fid's corresponding name (n_fname) and newid(n_newid) Thanks in advance.
