Set convert property reseting to EViews default on copy

Postby econmiller » Wed Nov 04, 2009 6:55 pm

Here's an unexpected one, and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I have quarterly data in a worksheet where all series have a set conversion methode from high to low. I create an annual page in the same workfile and copy the data using the following commands

pagecreate(page=awork) a 1990 {%PA_SOLVTO}
copy work\* awork\

When I look at the conversion property of my series, they have all reverted to EViews default. This behavior also occurs with another routine that uses the following statements. Here, the first line is moving quarterly data to another quarterly page, while the second is moving from quarterly to annual. However the series lose their conversion properties in both the outq and outa pages.

copy work\{%sname} outq\{%sname} 'conversion method already set
copy work\{%sname} outa\{%sname} 'conversion method already set

However, if I mouse click and save a series in the work page (has correct set conversion property) and mouse click past into any of the other pages (regardless of frequency), the set conversion property commutes with the data.

Any thoughts? Thank you for considering this issue.
Steve
