Setconvert chowlina?

It looks to me like setconvert can not handle the new frequency conversion methods such as chowlina. Is there a way to work around this?

Also, it looks to me like the frequency conversion methods on some pages (e.g. fetch command) do not reflect the newer methods.

conversion methods not updated in fetch help?

In your help page for fetch, it lists the old conversion methods. In your page for copy, it includes the new longer list of methods. It looks to me like fetch can handle the new methods (e.g. Chow Lin etc...). Am I correct? If so, I think the fetch help page should be updated, and/or refer people to...

Re: Partial Loads of Workfiles

Your little test file works. It is looking like it may be something I have added or changed since the backup. It is not happening to all of my workfiles. I think it is just 3 but I am not sure what they have in common. We do a lot of imports of data from Excel from Bloomberg downloads. Maybe there i...

Re: Partial Loads of Workfiles

Not in this case. In one of my workfies for example, I keep creating the workfile from scratch and it keeps happening. No warning when saving, but then won't reopen. In another big, old workfile, I keep going back to a backup copy from last week and that opens fine, but when I save it, and reopen it...

Re: D is an illegal workfile page name

Okay. I see now that "d" works but "D" does not. Thanks for looking into this for me.

I guess the problem I am having loading old workfiles is unrelated. A started a different post about that.

Partial Loads of Workfiles

All of a sudden, I am having trouble opening my workfiles. It opens them as untitled and I get this message, "File contains an object that can not be loaded. It may have been saved by another version of EViews. A partial load was done in "WFUSE..." I have never had this problem before...

Re: D is an illegal workfile page name

I tried in a program
pagecreate(page=D) D7 1/1/2018 12/31/2020
and I tried to do it manually (Click on New Page etc...)

I am running Eviews 10+, Standard Edition - Apr 15 2019 build

Re: D is an illegal workfile page name

Continued... I am having trouble with all of my workfiles with a D tab. When I open them, I get an error message and it opens it as untitled. Then all programs that use that workfile fail because the named workfile that it is looking for is not open. Sometimes, it creates a tab called "Day"...

D is an illegal workfile page name

I have old workfiles that have daily workfile pages named "D" but when I try to create a new workfile with a page named "D", it says, "D is an illegal workfile page name". Is this a new restriction?

Should I rename the daily pages in my old workfiles?
