Re: Statconn basic server test fails to connect with R 3.0

Excellent thanks a lot, i'd be very grateful. It looks like it's built in to the BVAR functionality somehow but i couldn't work out how to just pull out a random draw. thanks a lot for this, it's REALLY appreciated.

Re: Statconn basic server test fails to connect with R 3.0

Sorry to bump a semi-old topic... anybody had any luck getting the Eviews -> R link to work since RandFriends was removed? I tried doing the install process described here http://homepage.univie.ac.at/erich.neuwirth/php/rcomwiki/doku.php?id=wiki:how_to_install but it's clearly been a while since it ...

command line / programming for user specified bin sizes?

quick/easy q, it's simple but can't find help in the manual... i'm creating a bunch of histograms and i'd like them to all have same bins (for sake of comparison etc). to change bin size you usually go something like: freeze(graphname) seriesname.hist(binw=arg) where arg = eviews, sigma etc. questio...

Simple question re. forwards compatability: eviews 7.1 to 6

Hi all - I'm sending a smallish workfile created in eviews 7.1 to people using eviews 6. It's only got tables and basic spool objects - no object types that are exclusive to 7. Will they still be able to open it?

Re: GetStocks (fetch stock data)

If you're fiddling around with the code, somewhere in there I put in a hack to allow stocks with names that EViews doesn't like: if @left(%stock,1) = "^" then 'handle the case where a stock name starts with "^", which is an invalid EViews name. %stock = "_" + @mid(%sto...

Re: GetStocks (fetch stock data)

Would it be even better if you combine the two programs by adding an "Australia or United States" radio button on the ui? i could probably do that actually, there are only a few lines needed changing... just have a radio button attached to a !market = 1, have "if !market >0 then /bla...

Re: GetStocks (fetch stock data)

Love this code, you guys are awesome. I tweaked the code a little (tweaked code attached) so that it pullls australian stock market data rather than US (can't just use the icharts .ax suffix as this would imply a period in the output eviews object names). australian users might find it useful.

Re: series "sort" command problem in my program

Hmm ok. I kludged past it using group sorting but it's definitely something I'd appreciate for future use (will probably be using this function a lot over the next year)

Thanks for your prompt reply!

series "sort" command problem in my program

Hi all, I'm writing a program which uses a lot of sorting of series (reasonably large loops etc). Whenever I use the series "sort" command (series_name.sort) the series being sorted is opened on the screen (like using the "show") command. Is there any way I can suppress this? It ...

Re: Distribution display question

Gotcha, I just replaced the .name(1) references with .addtext(b). I'd tried the addtext before but didn't realist you could shift the position of the text. Thanks for your help.
