Windows XP to Windows 7

I just upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7. I have version 7.0 enterprise edition of eviews. When I run one of my command files I get this error message: Internal Error 500 in "MATRIX RANKS_{%X}_TR = @COLRANKS(@TRANSPOSE(MAT_MOM312))" When I run the same command on an XP machine it runs ...

Fetch vs Update DB

When I right click on a work file variable the pop-down menu has several choices, including "Fetch from DB" and "Update from DB". What is the difference?

Re: Cross-sectional ranks

I downloaded an ev7 update and now @colranks works, but there still is nothing in the documentation about it. Is there a @rowranks as well?

Re: Cross-sectional ranks

I spoke too soon. When I use @colranks() I get an Error 500 message. And I can't find this function anywhere in the eviews 7 documentation. Is this a discontinued function?

Cross-sectional ranks

I have a pool of time series. I want to create a new set of the series where each observation is the cross-sectional rank (at a point in time) across the pool. How do I do this in e-views? Do I have to use matrix operations? Thanks, Tom

importing from mixed numerical and alpha files

I am having trouble importing tab delimited files either in .txt or .xls formats. The data has 25 columns with no headers. Some columns are alpha and some numeric. There must be some simple command lines to do this but the user's guide doesn't have much on alpha data.
