About Keys

ccm_ref_print handles key input slightly differently than ccm_print in that it allows keys that contain spaces. For example, NOTETYPECD data may be returned by using the reference code key “GENERAL INFO”).

ccm_ref_print does not support relative keys (first, last, next, previous, same), due to a conflict between these special keys and some of Compustat’s reference codes.
