@mean(x,n) function with weird behavior after update

Postby fmramos » Wed May 12, 2010 6:54 am

Hi all!

I'm used to use formulas like that:

Y=DB::X/@mean(DB::X,"t0 t1")*100

to change the base of a series. The formulas worked well until the today update (May 11).

Now I only can do the operation if the original series is not in the database, but in the workfile.

The message I got is (DB::X) is "illegal or reserved name"

Tks,

Fabio

Yep, we broke it. We'll get a new patch up asap. In the mean time you can revert back to the previous patch, by re-downloading it.
