Jim,I did a search as you mentioned and came up with this post from 2009 which is his most recent mentioning 'elqw.v'.http://boards.fool.com/value-line-data-complete-nearly-all-v...This excerpt would indicate that elq.v is the regularized 'elqw.v'.Already Regularized FieldsTwo fields are already regularized: elq.v and rce.v. For discussion of the irregularities in elq.v, see http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=25831116 ; for rce.v (and the demolition of SOS_Ancer), see http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=26297985 .Note that I have removed the 'w' from elqw.v, which means some screen URLs will require slight changes. I have also changed the way I regularize the field: I've scrapped the convoluted procedure for recovering values outside the currently accepted range from of -300% and 300%, and instead, I zero-out values outside this range from 1986 through 1996, leaving the field consistently within the range of -300% to 300% over the entire length of the backtest. I also set the field to zero whenever eslq.v is not positive, consistent with Value Line's current practice.I must admit,however, I do not always (or even often) understand what Robbie is saying. I just do not function at his wave length.Larry
