@lag() - is an illegal or reserved named in ""

Hi,

Can you explain us why @lag is not working ? The function was working 1 hour ago.


matrix(2,2) tester
tester.fill 2,3,2,1

@LAG is an illegal or reserved name in "MATRIX LAG_TESTER = @LAG(TESTER,1)".

Seems like the code is fine to me.

I installed the "2018-03-15" patch.

Now it is working. Wow... eviews is not robust!

@lag for matrices is a new command. Your previous version probably did not have it. Updating to the latest version enabled it.

The fact that newer versions of EViews have more features than previous versions is not a reason to call it "not robust" imo.
