Adequacy of TC2000 Data?

    I've just been looking at a demo TC2000 CD with data through July 25, 2003.

    TC2000 seems to offer two types of EPS figures, the % change in EPS for each of the last four quarters from the corresponding respective quarter a year ago and the percentile rank of each % change figure.

    However, a cursory look through the All Stocks watchlist reveals that EPS percentile ranking figures are missing for a great many quarters for a great many securities.

    The significance of this is that stock screening based upon earnings criteria becomes of little or no value.

    Am I missing something? I'd really like to know since TC2000 seems to well thought of.

    Also, the data sheets show % changes rather than the actual quarterly EPS figures. It's not possible to verify the correctness of the % change figures because the basic EPS figures are not there.

    Any thoughts?
