Hi Gerard,

I thought your problem might be very similar as what I encountered before. 

You said that you attempted to indicate whether the date of all other observations of this firm (where rep = 0) lay within the range determined by 'wind_start' and 'wind_end', but in your data, the firm2 had two set of 'wind_start' and 'wind_end', (03jul1999 - 27jul2000 and 09jul1999 - 02aug2000), so which one should be used in the determination? 

Thank you. 
Best wishes,

Pengpeng
