Re: Matrix with NAs

Thanks, Gareth. This line pricesmat(T,!j) = subcomp{!j}_v was supposed to replace each of the j=1,...,N columns with the j=1,...,N series, but that appears to be the source of the error. After I sent the email, I remembered the colplace command and modified the loop, but I still get an error message...

Matrix with NAs

Hi, I would like to produce a TxN matrix from a set of N individual series. The issue is that there are time periods with NAs in each of the series. I want to keep track of the NAs in the matrix. To solve the problem, I tried two possibilities (below), but neither worked. The output is a TxN matrix ...

Re: Numeric operator and string data

I solved the problem. My program worked for some countries but not others, and there did not appear to be a systematic pattern governing when it did not work. The issue may have something to do with Excel rather than Eviews. I inserted this logical test into the cells from which I was loading the da...

Re: Numeric operator and string data

I replaced this line in the program: import(type=excelxml) {%excelname} range={%x}_eviews @freq m %start with this line: import(type=excelxml) {%excelname} range={%x}_eviews types=(w, w, w, w, w, w,w, f, w, w) @freq m %start I get this error now: Syntax error: invalid format string in "IMPORT(T...

Re: Numeric operator and string data

Thank you for the quick reply. I get an error with the @val function: Numeric argument passed to string @VAL function in "SERIES PMI1=@VAL(PMI) This presumably happens because there are non-missing numerical data included in the series. The Excel spreadsheet and the program are attached. The re...

Numeric operator and string data

Hi, I am running a program that loads data into Eviews country by country and computes indices using the data. I added a series (PMI) that uses #N/A N/A to indicate missing values. The program works fine for one country (the United States), but I get the error message: Numeric operator applied to st...

Modifying graphs in a loop

I am creating a set of graphs in a loop that iterates over a set of countries. I would like to change the line width in each of the graphs to make them more legible. Below is a code fragment that works. I tried inserting caicomp_{%x}.setelem(1) lwidth(2) into the loop below to increase the width of ...

Scenario analysis

Hi, I have a forecasting model y(t+1) = a + b*y(t) + c*x(t) + e(t+1) and want to automate as much as possible inserting alternative paths for y(t) and x(t) to do scenario analyses. For example, I want to exogenously set y(t+h) and x(t+h), h > 1, equal to some values to see what the model predicts ab...

Assigning string variable to matrix element

Hi, Is it possible to assign a string variable to an element in a matrix? The code fragment that I have written is below. I would like the output to be a 7xN matrix (N=2 in the fragment below) where the top row contains the names of the variables in the group (i.e., EURUSD and USDJPY) and the rows o...

Re: Exporting data to Excel

In the program I just sent you, there is a code fragment based on a change I am making to the program. (It is unrelated to the problem I am having.) The attached file removes it. Apologies.
