Dear Thorsten,


As far as I know, NONMEM allows no more than 50 data items; with NONMEM versions 6 and earlier, only up to 20 data items were allowed. But you can still use "=DROP" to circumvent this limitation. You can drop the variables those are not used in the current model. Any subsetting requested via the IGNORE or ACCEPT is performed prior to dropping variables. Therefore, those dropped variables could be used to specify data subsets to NM-TRAN.


Happy holidays!


Derek
