Adding images to graph object

The formatting capability of Eviews graph objects has greatly improved over the years and users can now create publication-quality charts. One additional feature that may be useful in future versions of Eviews would be the ability to insert images (png, jpg, etc) onto graph objects. This would allow...

Re: Combining Different Frequencies on One Graph

When I try plotting an linked annual series from a monthly page, I do see the Frequency drop down box on the first page of the Graph Options dialog, and I can change it to plot at its native (annual) frequency. However, when I change the Graph type from Line & Symbol to Bar, the Frequency drop d...

Escape characters in @UI functions

I'm trying to understand how to use "escape characters" when using the @uiradio function to create a dialog box with two options, both of which contain spaces. As the documentation indicates, the list of options is space-delimited. If an option includes a space it must use double-quote esc...

Inserting image into graph object

Is it possible to insert/paste an outside image (e.g. png file) into an Eviews graph object? If so, how would I do this using commands?

Re: Pagestruct using year and month

Thanks. As you suggest, using an intermediary date series for the pagestruct command works regardless of the number of month observations. pagecreate u 9 genr year = 2016 genr month = @obsid genr dateobs = @makedate(100*year+month,"YYYYMM") pagestruct @date(dateobs) It would be nice though...

Pagestruct using year and month

I'm trying to restructure a page using year and month series. However, it only seems to work if there are 12 months. For example, the following code with 12 observations seems to work wfcreate u 12 genr year = 2015 genr month = @obsid pagestruct @date(year, month) But if I only have 9 observations (...

Re: Creating many time series from a single ODBC sql call

It sounds like what you want to do is unstack your dataset. For the workfile created by your SQL query, I think the following code may do the job: alpha varname = commodity + origin pageunstack(namepat=*_?) varname yrqtr @ teus rename teus_* * Here's a description of what the code is doing: (1) Defi...

Wildcard character when querying IHS Magellan

The "@" symbol in the name of many series in the IHS Magellan databanks appears to be causing an issue when querying and/or fetching from the database using a wildcard character. For example, neither of the fetch commands below will retrieve anything from the RFOR databank on IHS Magellan ...

Is there a command to extract the unit root test results from the Eviews 9 breakpoint unit root test into a table object? Freezing the buroot view creates a spool object, but I can't figure out how to output just the unit root test results portion of this spool object. I can right-click on that port...

Overlay normal distribution on histogram

Is it possible to overlay a theoretical (e.g. normal) distribution on top of the histogram chart for a series in Eviews 8.1? I see where I can do either one or the other but it doesn't appear I can do both. If this is possible, could you please tell me how to do this? If not possible in 8.1, is this...

Re: Eporting a group to Excel

I'm trying to use pagesave with the @keep option to export a group of series to an Excel file. My group has one series listed twice (I'd like it to appear in two different columns of the Excel file). But the resulting Excel file only has the series listed one time. Why isn't the pagesave (or @keep) ...
