I’m having some issues with the outdated (deprecated) command ‘finite’ that needs to be replaced in vers.7.10 and up with ‘isfinite’.  Normally I’m directed to the specific line where the problem sits, but not this time.  I’m given this, several times:


Warning: The fourth output, VERSN, of FILEPARTS will be removed in a future

Before finally, the error message reads:

Error running job:

Undefined function or method 'finite' for input arguments of type 'double'.


Really not sure where the problem lies; has anyone had this issue before?  If someone from SPM could send me a list of .m files tapped into by the “Normalize:Estimate and Write” process, I can probably fix the problem myself.  Thanks very much.
