Re: Set up of FRB/US model

Hi, I assume that you have unzipped the FRB/US package, not altered its file organization, and installed the set of addins. Then, any of the programs should run if your EViews path points to the directory in which the programs are located. (Each program uses relative path names to find the objects i...

Re: graph time axis

Thanks. Is there are way to do this with commands in a program?

graph time axis

I need to make some graphs using several series that are generated from the simulation of a model. (The particular source of the series is not important.) I want to graph 40 observations, for example, and have the time axis of the graph be based on the integers from 1 to 40, rather than the actual y...

@makediagonal bug

The "improvements" made recently to the @makediagonal function have caused it to produce the wrong result when trying to place elements on diagonals other than the main diagonal. A specific example: vector(10) v1 = 3 matrix m2 = @makediagonal(v1,1) The result for m2 is a 10x10 matrix with ...

matrix @dropcol procedure works incorrectly

I have been unable to get @dropcol to work as described. For example: I define the 4x4 matrix E to contain the integers 1 through 16 ordered by column, and then create F as matrix F = E.@dropcol(1) expecting to get back a 4x3 matrix with the integers 5-16 ordered by column. Instead, F is a 3x4 matri...

Copying graphs to the clipboard in Eviews 8

I have recently switched from EV 7 to EV 8. The Graph Metafile dialog box that pops up in EV7 doesn't come up when I use EV 8. The Users Guide indicates that the Options/Graphics Defaults/Exporting page in EV 8 should be able to turn on the dialog box, but the "display options dialog on all cop...

Re: model control

Hi:

I'll take a look if you post your program and workfile.

Re: deleting equations from a model

I'd like to add my support for the request to add the ability to delete one or more equations from an existing model. In working in EViews with a variety of models, some of whose equations are estimated outside of EViews, I frequently find it necessary to replace equations (to test an alternative sp...

Re: model control

Hi: I believe the example will work if you modify your program so that all of the model's endogenous variables have data for the full interval that you run the mcontrol addin. (I don't think it makes any difference what the values are.) You could just change your first smpl command so that it extend...

Re: Object size limit for XPUT command?

I guess I should have thought about this more carefully. I now see that increasing the advanced system option for "memory reserved for Windows, ..." to its maximum of 1000k enables XPUT works with larger matrices. (But not with a 5000x5000 matrix, which is what I'd really like to use.)

Object size limit for XPUT command?

Hi: I am trying to use the XPUT command to pass a relatively large matrix from EViews to R. XPUT works fine with a 700x700 matrix, but when I increase the matrix size to 1200x1200, the R log window indicates "R .... returned an unknown error." Have I exceeded some internal EViews limit? My...

Re: aim_solve (DSGE model simulation)

Hi: 1. You may have included the aim_solve "debug" option. When it is not included, the "work_" files are deleted from the workspace unless the execution of the add-in halts at some intermediate point because of an error. In the latter case, I think you can delete all the tempora...

How to use aim_solve with versions of R prior to 2.12

Hi: The aim_solve add-in will in fact work with versions of R prior to 2.12, but users of such versions must use the following method to instal the AMA package: 1. Start R 2. Enter: options(repos=c(CRAN = "ftp://cran.r-project.org/pub/R")) 3. Enter: install.packages("AMA") I've u...

Re: Printing an Eviews table

I like to second the request for better automation of PDF printing -- ie, the ability within a program to fully control the "printing" of PDF output.
This would be a very useful improvement.

Accessing "Print Setup" from a program

Is it possible to set or alter the "Print Setup" entries from within a program? I don't see any documentation on how to do this, so perhaps it isn't. Specifically, we want a batch program to print a spool object to a PDF file. This program will be run by many different people, and so I'd l...
