Re: link series value of EViews11,12 differs from that of EViews10 and earlier

I was able to confirm the issue, but it'll take some time to work out the best way to fix/change this. In the meantime, I can tell you what's happening and try to provide a workaround. The series link objects you're creating have both "Link Spec" and "Freq Convert" settings, with...

Re: ODBC 32-bit databases and Eviews 12

To read in a numeric column as a string, you need to convert the column data type in a custom query. select_table.png For example, if your table has columns id (numeric), nm (varchar(20)), then you could use a custom query like the following to convert the id column into a varchar(10): SELECT cast(i...

Re: ODBC 32-bit databases and Eviews 12

When you go thru the EViews import wizard, make sure those columns are marked as the correct data type. Also, it might be an issue with how EViews is parsing the decimal point (comma or period?) in your numeric values. If your data uses a comma instead of a period, make sure EViews is set to that be...

Re: ODBC 32-bit databases and Eviews 12

Ascii characters that are not in the current language setting are not supported in EViews. That means if you're using EViews on an English language OS, you won't be able to see the German characters properly. However, if you're running EViews on a German language OS, and those characters are part of...

Re: ODBC 32-bit databases and Eviews 12

Out of curiosity, which ODBC 32-bit drivers are you using? For which databases? I'm kinda surprised there aren't 64-bit versions available so I'd like to know...

Re: ODBC 32-bit databases and Eviews 12

You can't use a 32-bit ODBC driver from EViews 64-bit. And unfortunately, EViews 12 is currently only available as a 64-bit application. We don't have any plans on releasing EViews 12 32-bit, but we can look into what it would take to allow EViews 12 64-bit to support 32-bit ODBC drivers - though th...

Re: Import data from excel -

No, not for file, sheet, & cell. However, if the layout of your data on your sheet is simple, and you only have a single group of data on each sheet, you could try and see if EViews will recognize your data range automatically if you only specify the sheet name in the range, like this: import so...

Re: Python access to eviews databases

There isn't a way to do it directly, but you can always create a workfile, open the EDB file, fetch the objects you want to the workfile, then get the workfile data. You would use the Run method to do all of the initial steps. For example: evp.Run('WFCREATE A 1990 2000', app=eviewsapp) evp.Run('DBOP...

Re: Adding a new external database

The page you are referring to is showing exactly the same dataset as in my import example. This data doesn't appear as a time series in the EViews workfile because it defaulted to being read in as an undated panel. And the reason for this is because the CSV data provided by SNB is in a "stacked...

Re: Adding a new external database

We currently don't have a db connector that will allow you to directly browse for and download SNB data. However, there is another solution. I took a quick look at their website, and they provide some instructions on how to download their data directly in CSV format. See this page that discusses the...

Re: Wavelet Transform

The "Rconn instance is no longer available" error means that our interface to your R instance crashed. I would run the R GUI (from the same directory as you've pointed EViews to use) and then run the library(wavelets) command inside there to see if it provides you a better error message. O...

Re: Excel Add-in

Andrejs: We looked into this a while back but it turned out to be much more complicated than we thought. On the Excel side, I don't think it has the ability to directly import from a data source and immediately transpose it before laying it out in a spreadsheet. It can definitely do this as a two-st...

Re: eviews 12 and the license manager

Since your serial was only recently updated to allow running EViews 12, you'll have to refresh your serial number on your license server before it will work EViews 12. To refresh, 1. Run EViews License Management console 2. Double-click the Licenses icon. 3. Right-click the serial number and select ...

Re: Issue when exporting table as CSV - some cells exported as formulas

I used your example.wf1 workfile and generated a CSV. I was able to confirm your issue, however, when I took a closer look at the CSV file itself, those cells are not different/incorrect at all. Excel seems to be treating those cells as formulas for some reason and I haven't been able to figure out ...

Re: Using R - unexpected end of input in

Using R within EViews is not entirely the same as using R directly. One of the main differences is that whenever you hit Return/Enter in EViews, the line that you just wrote is sent to R as it is. When you do this in R directly, it can expect a continuation of the command on the following lines, but...
