Has anyone else found problems with the count function?

I know the Rumpledone uses it quite a lot.
I keep finding that when you try and count the occurences over, say 100 days, often the stock that has the most, doesn't always have 100 data points.

Simple example here:

set{dayago, close one day ago}
set{openup, count(open is above dayago,100)}
add column openup
sort column 5 descending

(e.g, how many days in 100 does a stock open up from its close).

The highest scoring ones, e.g., 90 times out of 100, often don't have 100 data points. Not sure how the count comes up with such a high number.
Chart the top scoring one, MOO, or AEF, and see that it only has about 40 data points. How did it count 90?!

Any ideas.

100 days is the maximum for COUNT.

I know 100 days is the max, I'm looking at 100 days in my counts, but some things come back with, say 90 out of 100, but when you look, they only have about 40 data points or less.!!!

Stockfetcher staff, can you take a look at this Count function. It obviously has a problem as discussed?

Thanks
