Hi MJ,

i get the following message when i try to estimate with my subsample. it is strange as i have not used the forecast command.

could you please check?

here is the command i used

estimation(datafile=April_Use_inf,presample=1 ,nobs =([51:143]),mh_nblocks=1, mh_replic=0, mh_jscale=0.5, mode_compute=4,mode_check,bayesian_irf) S RFD RTB C CSTAR R RSTAR ;

and here is the output after the posterior mode was computed

??? Error using ==> eval
