<<Is there one document or file available

1983 to the current time for ALL the
companies ?>>

Not that I know of. I'm afraid that you'll have to deal directly with ATT in order to get that information. The DRIP people at ATT may be able to help you out. If not, you'll probably need to contact investor relations.

This is one of the problems with DRIP plans and Uncle Sam: that of split ups and spin offs. It can get very, very complicated. Certainly doesn't mean its a "bad" thing, just something that you must keep on top of year to year.
