Re: Problem: EViews becoming the default viewer of xlsx files

EViews associates itself as a "secondary" handler for Excel files. This means when you right-click an Excel file, EViews shows up under the "Open With" dialog as an available handler. Also, if you click on "Choose another app", EViews will appear under "Other optio...

Troubleshooting EViews Slowness

Just some common things to check for when you encounter unexpected slow EViews performance: Slowness encountered when opening or saving a workfile 1. If the file is not local, try copying the file locally first using it with EViews to rule out your connection to the file server. 2. Turn off Automati...

Re: COM Add-In: Close Instance?

Actually, running the EXIT command via COM can potentially cause problems with your COM objects in your application. You're asking EViews to shutdown, even though you still have an EViews Application object in your program and if you try to use that object again afterwards you'll most definitely get...

Re: EViews 11 Beta.

That's really strange. EViews 11 Beta only talks to Python that you already have installed. It doesn't change any environment variables, or path settings, or really anything related to an installation of Python. It also doesn't install any version of Python for you. So I'm not sure what could've cau...

Re: MTOS

if %filename was originally a name with a .csv file extension, then the resulting new excel file will also have that name since you told EViews to use that name. The file is still an excelxml file format, but the extension is just wrong. If you rename the file to have an xlsx file extension, then yo...

Re: MTOS

Try creating a separate %path string value first:

Code: Select all

mtos(r1, g1, s1)
if @isobject("s1") then
    delete s1
endif
%path = "C:\Users\Dhitya\Desktop\test\" + %file
wfsave(type=excelxml) %path @keep date return g1

Re: MTOS

I don't see a filename specified in the WFSAVE call. I believe you always need a filename specified. Just use your %file variable.

Re: importattr command

You responded so quickly, I'm curious -- what did you do differently that made it work? I thought the import's overwrite mode would overwrite any previous description. Is that not working as expected? Oh, you're not writing to the description value... Well if you want to clear or set all description...

Re: importattr command

If you haven't updated to the latest patch, please do so and try again.

Otherwise, I'm not sure why you're seeing different behavior. Did you manually run the commands via the command window or did you run the program again?

Re: importattr command

I downloaded your workfile, switched to the annual page, then ran the following command in the command window: importattr(o) attributes and when I checked a series on the annual page, it had all the attributes: screenshot1.png Is this what you're looking for? By the way, IMPORT & WFOPEN commands...

Re: Unknown Error 0x800A03EC

That looks like a COM error. WFSAVE would use COM to save to a spreadsheet only if it pre-existed and it is currently open & locked by Excel. I would try closing the Excel document (in Excel) and try running the WFSAVE command again. It can get a little tricky when EViews tries to update a docum...

Re: Settings aren't stored

On networks where EViews is actually running on a remote server (e.g. the cloud) or is running inside a VM environment of any kind, it's possible that your user-specific INI file is getting lost, perhaps once a day or even upon each restart of EViews. In situations like this, you'll have to discuss ...

Re: Workfile contains links to external data sources....

Currently, there is no way to suppress that message without disabling all of the external links in the workfile. The Manage button can take you to a dialog that allows you to quickly disable all external connections with just a few clicks.

Re: Internal Error 504 504

It's possible your file has been corrupted somehow. Did you try opening the backup or snapshot file? The backup file should be in the same folder, but instead of ".WF1", it has a ".~F1" extension. Or if you have snapshots turned on, you can look for a hidden folder in the same di...
