Re: Running .PRG files from part way through

I think I'll add it to the wish list. This facility was available in the Aremos package and I found that it was increadably useful for writing programmes and debugging them. OK, you can break things down to a lot of smaller files together but it can be a bit of an organisation nightmare putting them...

Running .PRG files from part way through

Is there any way of running a programme (.prg) file other than from the first line? If you could, it would be very useful for putting lengthy .prg files together

assigning the dates of the first and last observations

Is there any way that I can assign (either as a scalar or a control variable) the start or end date of a variable?

e.g. if a series "x" started in 2001 and ended in 2009, is there any way that I can save the values 2001 and/or 2009?

Getting groups into strings

I have a group and I want to get it into a string so that I can loop through the elements of the group. e.g. something like this: group test1 x1 x2 x3 string test2="test1" for %t {test2} series {%t}=1 next but I can't use a group to create a string (i.e. string test2="test1" does...

deleting equations from a model

I know that you can add equations or identities to a model using .merge ior .append but is there a way of removing equations or identities from an existing model?

Re: Specifying a model using a wildcard

Is there any documentation on how to use WLOOKUP in Eviews 7?

Specifying a model using a wildcard

Is there an easy way to create a model which contains every equation in a workfile or, alternatively, a model that contains every equation with a name that starts with the same letter or string of letters?

Saving coefficients with an AR(1) term

I want to estimate an equation with an AR(1) term and save the coefficients. I can specify an equation as follows: equation equ1.ls x1 c y1 y2 ar(1) but this does not save the coefficients. The usual way of saving coefficients is to specify an equation like so: equation equ1.ls x1=c(1)+c2)*y1+c(3)*y...

Pooled Regression

I am trying to estimate a pooled regression using commands (rather than interactively). I have tried the following: pool e_x1.ls ?x1 c ?y1 where a number of variables with the suffixes "x1" and "y1" exist in the workfile. This cresaes a pool pbject called e_x1, however, when I op...

Re: Adding Models Together

is that by using:

model mod3

Adding Models Together

Is it possible to add the equations in one or more models together to get one large model? For example, if MOD1 contains one set of equations and MOD2 another can you do something like:

MOD3 = MOD1+MOD2

If so, what happens if one or more equations appear in more than one model?

How do you specify identities in command/batch mode

Doe anyone know how to specify an identity for a model using a command? The mannual gives an example of how to add the identity Y=cn + I +g to a model interactively but I can't figure how to do this in batch mode

using strings in for loops

Is it possible to use a strip to predefine a list of mnemonics and then to use them in a loop? For example I would like to do something like this: %country="UK US" for %c %country series prod{%c}=gdp{%c}/emp{%c} next where %country is a list of country suffixes which I want to use in the l...

Many thanks. It might be a "hack" but it works a treat.
