Re: nm7 IMP method question

Dear Ethan.
if you use the IMP method to estimate your parameters, you do not have to
run a second IMP step. The ESTEP is run for every iteration and if the OFV
is stable during the last iterations you can just use that. However the
behavior you are describing is strange. It could be related to different
settings for both steps. Can you please send the code for both $EST lines?

Best regards,
