Compustat Index code lookup fixed!

Compustat databases like Global and North America have great part databases that can be used to find out what the historical composition is for indexes of stock exchanges. Other databases (like CRSP and datastream) offer similar options but the Compustat option is a very easy to use one. The part databases that can be used for this, are called: Index Constituents. For the past few weeks the Code lookup option to find the codes for indexes in Compustat Global no longer worked in Wharton. The helpdesk has now reported that the problem has been fixed. Today I did a small check and I can confirm that it is now possible again to lookup the Ticker and GVKEYX codes again.
