Hi, I am using Eviews 10 Enterprise Edition 64 bit. I have installed the frenchdata add in. I have changed the alpha truncation max length to 5000 in general options. However when I try to import most large portfolios I get the attached error. For instance on the 6 portfolios formed on size and Book-To-Market (2x3). This error occurs on most portfolio data imports. Why is this and does anyone know how to fix it? Thanks. Tom

I don't get this error. Can you check that you are up to date (Help -> EViews Update)?
