Assignee_ID issue in the "Assignee" table

Hi PatentsView team,

In the July-version datasets, I find that the assignee_id in the "assignee"
data table has been changed to a data format that is different from the
assignee_id in the "patent_assignee" table. In the last December version, the
assignee_id has the same value in these two data tables and we are able to
merge them. We think that there is probably a data error. Would you please
check this issue and let me know how I can merge these two tables? Thank you
very much.

Assignee table regenerated

Thank you for letting us know about this issue in the July update. We have regenerated the file and confirmed the id fields are now corrected and can be merged across tables.
