What about lag order in VECM and VAR.
In the command reference: The number of lags in the VECM itself (where the dependent variable is given as a first difference) is one less than order.
These lag order terms are the same or different?

We free software buffs do have a talent for creating looong mailing list
threads out of the simplest things. Since it looks like this thread is
dying out, I'll put my 2 cents in to revive it: shouldn't we be consistent
with the Johansen tests (\lambda-max and trace)? Those are just the
multivariate generalisation of ADF, and we use B there.
I know, I should have stayed quiet :-)
