Exclude cancelled events

In addition to the period definition, the exclusion of cancelled events ☑️ is another search criterion for the targeted restriction of search results.
A cancelled event exists when the status of a corporate event contains one of the following expressions:

  • S = Cancellation of entire announcement
  • T = Cancellation of entire announcement due to ISIN change
  • U = Cancellation due to duplicate/renewed publication

The status of a corporate event is reflected in the following WM fields:

  • Income:
    ED001 Payment status (Table: E13)
  • Conversions:
    UD001 Conversion status (Table: U25)
  • Capital changes:
    KD001 Capital measure status (Table: K12)
  • General meetings:
    HD001 Meeting or announcement status (Table: H25)
  • Final maturities:
    VD001 Drawing or calling status (Table: V11)

Corporate events without dates

For certain Corporate Actions, the WM date fields listed above are usually not populated. Some examples of such corporate events are:

  • Conversions (segment U): Amendments to the contract terms in connection with the durable medium
  • Conversions (segment U): Insolvency proceedings
  • Capital adjustments (segment K): Changes to the commercial register, e.g. entries in the commercial register due to amendments to the articles of association
  • Shareholders' Meetings (segment H): Class Action

Such corporate actions can be displayed using the functionality Include events without date ☑️.

If this search function is activated, corporate actions are also taken into account and displayed in the hit list which do not (yet) contain any information in the WM date fields listed above. Nevertheless, these corporate events may contain a corresponding date in other, less common WM date fields or in the general text (such as KD998).


To search for corporate actions without a date, an ISIN, a WKN or a position group is required as a search criterion, in addition to the period specification.

Search mask Corporate Actions. For each type of measure, a checkbox ☑️ for inclusion / exclusion is available. By default, cancelled events are excluded and events without date included. This can be changed by deactivating the associated checkbox.


Selection of sorting

In addition to the search criteria, the sorting of the hits can also be determined. The hit list can be sorted either primarily by the respective date or by the type of measure (action), whereby events without dates / deadlines are considered last in the respective sorting order.

Hit list Corporate Actions

The hit list itself contains an overview of the corporate actions found for the entered search criteria. Besides the measure type as well as ISIN, abbreviation and WKN, also the date fields are displayed analogous to the meaning of the search mask.

Since the hit list column "Date" is only displayed once per hit, this column contains the first date in the sequence of date fields listed per type of capital measure / segment.

The conversion period (UD016) and subscription period (KD014) are not included in the date column and are shown as period from/to.

Hit list Corporate Actions for the overview of the corporate actions found.

The last column of the hit list with the title Type of event contains a sub-classification of the corporate event depending on the type of measure and are represented by the following WM-Fields and associated WM-Tables:

  • Income:
    Dividend payment type (Field: ED005 / Table: E02)
  • Conversions:
    Exchange/cash compensation/payment type (Field: UD006A / Table: U51)
  • Capital changes:
    Capital measure type (Field: KD005 / Table: K01)
  • General meetings:
    Type of shareholders' meeting (Field: HD006 / Table: H02)
  • Final maturities:
    Redemption type (Field: VD005 / Table: V01)

The status of a corporate event is displayed in addition to the type of event, once the Toogle function is executed.

Activate the window for the Toogle function.

A click on the headline of the last column activates the Toggle function ...

The last column is replaced by another field.

... and the window for the selection of the new information is displayed. Then just click on Status.
Alternative: [Alt] & [+] or [-] to scroll forward or backward.

The values of the Status column depends on the type of event. See also: Overview of the status WM-Fields with the associated WM-Tables


The comprehensive search of the corporate actions with the query profile "Corporate Actions" is especially suitable in combination with the portfolio-related query function in order to create an overview of upcoming corporate actions for the next days or weeks for stock instruments.


Detail display of a corporate event

After selecting a data set from the hit list, all not empty data fields of the relevant segment are displayed - analogous to the query profiles in wmView.
