Re: Program to run with existing workfile

Thanks. I printed the chapter 16 pages from EViews Illustrated and will see if I can make some progress. Many years ago I took a couple semesters of FORTRAN, but have not done any programming in decades.

Re: Program to run with existing workfile

I am not shying from doing work, I am having a difficult time trying to find the instructions that tell the program to select an equation from an open workfile, change a given variable and then evaluate the equation for a given number of times and then store the SSR, similar to your example storing ...

Re: Program to run with existing workfile

Yes, there is a two stage process. Find the threshold, which requires an input change in order to find the minimum SSR. This process took 141 iterations with the change variable in Enders book. Then, given the threshold value, forecast UNRATE. I was hoping to get some help to write the routine neede...

Re: Program to run with existing workfile

There is an example in Enders, Applied Econometric Time Series, 4th ed. on pages 425 to 436 concerning a Threshold model (TAR). He shows that the threshold is found at the minimum SSR. In the example case, running a given model 141 time as described on page 426 locates the minimum SSR. Page 435 show...

Re: Program to run with existing workfile

Thanks. What if I have the file open and want to run a given equation, (say EQ32) 20 times to extract the SSR? I read your example programs in which you ran equations several times to extract the Rsquared, but have not been able to change that program to accomplish my goal.

Program to run with existing workfile

What instruction is needed for an EViews program to run with an existing workfile? For example, I have a file with UNRATE in it and have several equations trying to forecast UNRATE. One such model is a nonlinear model that first requires the user to run a least squares model several times and extrac...

Re: READ ME

I think the confusion for me is that a text file was added to the workfile and titled READ ME. The text file seems like a good way to explain what one has done, to help the memory several months or years later. Since EViews had added a READ ME in the Help Menu, I thought there was a distinct object ...

Re: READ ME

When reviewing Professor Giles blog, I notice that he often has a READ ME note or file attached to his EViews examples that explain what he has done. I assumed that there must be some way to create such a note or file that was part of EViews. Also, looking at the "help" item on the top of ...

READ ME

Sorry to ask a simple question. How does one create a READ ME. I have searched EViews help and search engines, but could not find an answer.
