I'm trying to use the egenmore function, minutes, but keep on getting an
error message. I'm using version 8 and have alredy checked for an update to
egenmore.

. clear

. set obs 5
obs was 0, now 5

. gen J="00:15"

. li J

     +-------+
     |     J |
     |-------|
  1. | 00:15 |
  2. | 00:15 |
  3. | 00:15 |
  4. | 00:15 |
  5. | 00:15 |
     +-------+

. egen Jn=seconds(J)
problematic characters in J
r(459);

I get the same error with  seconds:


. clear

. set obs 5
obs was 0, now 5

. gen J="01:15:15"

. li J

     +----------+
     |        J |
     |----------|
  1. | 01:15:15 |
  2. | 01:15:15 |
  3. | 01:15:15 |
  4. | 01:15:15 |
  5. | 01:15:15 |
     +----------+

. egen Jn=seconds(J)
problematic characters in J
r(459);

What's going on here? Am I misunderstanding something?

Cheers,

Stephen
