conversion methods not updated in fetch help?

Postby JeffvdN » Wed Jun 05, 2019 12:58 pm

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 the newer pages on frequency conversions. I wasted a bunch of time deciding which method to use for a project, then had to do it again when I discovered the newer methods.

I just looked at our online FETCH help page and it seems to list all the frequency methods, similar to our COPY page.

Are you perhaps referring to our Pool::FETCH page, as it seems like googling "eviews fetch" lists that page as the first result. Not sure why that is happening.

I'll try to get that Pool::Fetch page updated with the new methods.
