About Me

Hi, I’m Kai CUntitledhen. I was a PhD student in accounting at the School of Accounting and Finance, University of Waterloo (link) when I created this blog. Now I happily landed on Wilfrid Laurier University as an assistant professor in accounting. This website serves as a repository for coding tips and SAS/Stata/Python programs for archival research in financial accounting. I personally benefit a lot from other persons’ blogs or websites. I hope I can use my expertise to help others in return.

I wish this blog can promote code reusability in our community.

I like running (finished my first half marathon on May 1, 2016), photography, videography, astronomy, programming, website building, and all cool tech gadgets. If I were not in the field of accounting (auditor and financial advisor at Big 4, accounting PhD and now professor), I would probably have been a good programmer.

Happy coding, and share!

    Hi Kai,

    Thank you for the explanation on exporting files from Factiva in a table format. That is exactly what I need to do for my current work.

    Unfortunately, I have never worked with Python, so it gets very complicated very fast for me. How I understood it, I simply paste the code you wrote in Python, while having my txt files in the same folder as Python, and it should automatically do the trick. I think I may be oversimplifying it a little! Could you possibly give some advice to send me in the right direction. I would be very grateful!

    Many thanks,
    Dennis Coppens

    Hi Kai,

    Thanks very much for your sharing on codes and experience of data processing. During my PhD study, I also benefited quite a lot from online resources, e.g. WRDS forum, some blogs, perosnal sites from some scholars like Andrew Lo. It is really nice to spot your blog with so many key information on. Thanks again for your site.
