General keyword search EViews database

Hi, I'm wondering if it's possible to do a very general database query in EViews? For example, I would like to be able to use @wquery like this: @wquery("mydb", "* matches *Exports* and freq=Q", "name") The key feature of the above code is the first wildcard (*) term in...

Re: series attribute by number

Thanks for the reply, Gareth.

A list of attributes sounds like a good solution.

Cheers,

series attribute by number

Hi, @attr(“arg”) string containing the value of the arg attribute, where the argument is specified as a quoted string. I think it would be useful to be to access series attributes (labels) by passing an index value to the @attr() function instead of a quoted string. For example, the @attr() function...

Re: Dependencies using commands?

Hello, There is a pair of undocumented model procedures for returning upwards and downwards dependencies. model.@depends("foo") returns a string containing the variables that "foo" depends on (downward), and model.@upends("foo") returns a string containing the variable...

series preview window size

Hi, I was wondering if there is any way of resizing the series preview window? The problem is that when I search my database using the series preview, the important series labels and information are out of view by default. [See image 1] To see the important labels, I must scroll down each time and t...

Protect model possible bug?

Hi, I'm trying to use the protect model feature in EViews 10+ (64-bit, Oct 16 2018 Build), but I'm running into an error. See the attachment below. eviews_protect.png I open a workfile, create a model object, protect it with a password, save the workfile, and close. Then I open the workfile and it g...

Re: Quadratic conversion Method

Hi Roland, It's subjective to say which interpolation method is the best for converting annual GDP data into quarterly frequency. I'd hazard a guess and say that you'd guess less slack using a method like the Chow-Lin method and a suitable high frequency indicator series (e.g. a production volumes s...

Re: Chart number of digits on y-axis

Hi Gareth, startz, Thanks for the replies. I think what I wanted was a way to set the default number of decimal places on the y-axis when creating charts. Actually, I can do this by going to Options then Graphics Defaults then Axes & Scaling then under Data axis set the number of decimal places ...

Chart number of digits on y-axis

Hi, I often use the model object for scenario analysis and one chart that I usually create displays the shock variable. For example, the chart below shows house prices as 10% deviation from baseline. However, notice that the y-axis is by default using a very high level of precision / number of digit...

Create a comma separated string with quotes?

Hi everyone, I would like to use the import command in an automated way and to do this I need to pass in the string values for the column head names as options. For example, below I pass three strings into the colheadnames option of the import command. colheadnames=("Name","Unit_code&...

Re: Output Gap with Dynamic HP Filter

Hi, Regarding (1), you don't actually need to include a lead term in the state vector. In the paper that you provide a link to, the authors have written the model using a "future version" of the state-space form. In a companion paper, the authors express the same model in the "contemp...

Re: The (not so) Dynamic forecasting in State Space models

Hi Jason, Let me try again! =) I understand that there appears to be some limitations to the sspace object; however, the state-space form is a very flexible mathematical structure, in the sense that many models, including the AR(1) model, have more than one state-space representation. The flexibilit...

Re: ARMA Model

Might be easier to help if you could provide the data. Otherwise, this could end up going back and forth. Thanks. By the way, my initial impression is that you have too many parameters in your model. Think from a theoretical standpoint, if stock markets are unpredictable (random walk hypothesis), th...

Re: The (not so) Dynamic forecasting in State Space models

Hi, Take a look at the program below. I think it's possible to do it if you use the makefilter command and set-up a loop. I demonstrate this below by forecasting an AR(1) model from both the equation and sspace objects. This is a simple example, but the general idea should hold. You can do variation...
