ShowVar omits tickers where data=NA Reply to this Post  Reply with Quote 

Created a simple screen which listed 11 stocks.

Ran same screen but with “showvar” lines added – now lists only 9 stocks.

After some investigation, I found the problem was lines where “Inst%Own” was “NA”. I tried adding “eval” to force the lines with “NA” to appear but no luck. I tried other factors to see if it was only a problem with “Inst%Own”, but found the same problem with other factors. Please help!! (screen is saved as “HELP – Showvar problem”.

Thanks, Debbie

Use SetVar. ShowVar returns the value of the expression and when NA it excludes the stock. I think SetVar returns TRUE. THe names and how they are different is a bit confusing (I had to look it up) and I wish we did them better.
