Compustat Global/ Datastream Index constituents

When using Compustat it happens all too often that data isn't available or can't be found.
This particularly seems to apply to index constituents from the Compustat Global database.

Therefore I have tried to find out what indexes do provide output, and also, what time scope they cover.

On our blackboard there is an overview (under progress) of constituent indexes in Compustat and Datastream:  Constituent Indexes Compustat and Datastream (press link)

 An image of that file can be seen in the following items


The list is not yet complete and will be under review for the coming period, but since there are many questions on constituents in Compustat Global, I have already placed some.
As you can see the coverage of the indexes may vary between Datastream and Compustat.
