Thank you that does indeed work.  However, is there a way to ensure I
only combine the observations I have identified with the
combined_finance indicator variable?  I ask because there are some
observations that I do not want to combine because they have multiple
financial periods due to a change in ownership.  I am trying different
"if" commands, but I cannot strike upon the proper one.

Thank you,
Matt
