Dear Allin, now I'm getting the following error message:

"First char of varname (0x0) is bad
(first must be alphabetical)"

And Gretl gives me the following output:

? open "L:\CONFIDENCIAL\Planilha\Dados Paí­ses\Brasil\Mercado de
Crédito\Dados Crédito.xlsx" --sheet="Gretl" --rowoffset=148
'Gretl' -> worksheets/sheet11.xml
expected 403 shared strings but only found 397
Found 9 variables and 139 observations
At row 149, column 8:
First char of varname (0x0) is bad
(first must be alphabetical)
Please rename this variable and try again
Error executing script: halting

The name of the variable is "conc md PJ". I tried to rename it as "teste"
but the error remains.

Kind regards,
Henrique Andrade*
