Unfortunately, there seem to be some simulation runs where the maximization procedure used by -finirr- fails to converge, i.e. no internal rate of return (IRR) can be calculated or no IRR exists. Therefore, I get a failure message when running my do file. Is there a way how to keep it going and instead produce a missing in case the IRR can't be computed?
