Computation engine failure

I'm running the latest version 2.38.3. I entered a test family with conventional planning and sufficient assets for a comfortable retirement. But the reports could not be produced because of a computation error below. It seems to be trying to compute consumption up to the age of 128 even though I entered max age of 99. Anyone seen this?

I'd need to see the database (use support ticket). Negative consumption sounds like simply an unaffordable model (which can easily happen if you guess wrong on the conventional planning). So I'd use economics planning to take advantage of the whole point of the program really--to find your sustainable spending level instead of having to guess at it. Conventional planning works better to prove the folly of conventional planning.


Dan, I'll put in a support ticket. I did have good results with economic planning and was checking the numbers with conventional.
