As noted on the Description Tab for the CPSIDP variable respondents who are part of the ASEC oversample (as indicated by ASECOVERP) have a CPSIDP value of 0. Therefore, the individuals you are observing with CPSIDP==0 are part of the ASEC oversample and therefore cannot be linked to the March basic sample. More information about these details is available here.
