### Re: genr x from quarterly page to yield a particular annual growth rate

Hi Matt Thanks again for looking into this. I have tried to make an EViews model to solve for the quarterly growth rate given a specified annual growth rate. Attached are two programs. The first "create_example.prg" generates a series x and calls on another program "setpcy.prg". ...

### Re: genr x from quarterly page to yield a particular annual growth rate

hi matt! thanks for your response. Yes, in that particular example, it follows what the quarterly growth rate must be. However, if more of the x-series is known during the time period under consideration, it becomes more complex. Consider again situation 3) described above, and illustrated in the pi...

### Re: genr x from quarterly page to yield a particular annual growth rate

Thanks for this startz! and thanks for looking into this. But it does not give me the quarterly growth rate... it gives the annual growth rate (every q4). i would like to first specify the annual growth rate, and then generate a series, in a given smpl, that will yield this specified annual growth r...

### Re: genr x from quarterly page to yield a particular annual growth rate

Hi In that particular example, by assuming constant quarterly growth (say g) in x, we have x = g * x(-1) which means that in our particular case: x1=x1 x2=g*x1 x3=g^2*x1 x4=g^3*x1 x5=g^4*x1 x6=g^5*x1 x7=g^6*x1 x8=g^7*x1 By inserting in the expression for the annual growth rate we get: !annualgrowthr...

### Re: genr x from quarterly page to yield a particular annual growth rate

Hi startz Thanks for your suggestion! I see that I was somewhat imprecise in my first post. I would like the annual growth rate to be !annualgrowthrate=100 * ( (x8+x7+x6+x5) / (x4+x3+x2+x1)-1), where x1, x2, ..., x8 are observations of x in different quarters, where quarters 1,2,3,4 are in Year 1 an...

### genr x from quarterly page to yield a particular annual growth rate

Hi Can you please describe how to generate a series in a quarterly page to match a specified annual growth rate? I am looking for a command of the type !annualgrowthrate=2.5 smpl 2018:2 2019 genr x = ... (?).... where the series x already exists in the workfile up to 2018:2 and the expression .... (...

### Spool - screen width

Hi I have a spool with several graphs. I would like the graphs to have a width in the spool object that covers the entire EViews window/screen. I have used the code spool.graphmode(type=fixed) to manually ensure that this is done on my computer screen at work. Then it looks like this: perfect.PNG Ho...

### Improve window behaviour

Hi The window behavior in EViews can be improved. It would be great if one could fix the windows in EViews so that certain program files were in say one quadrant of the window, workfiles in another, graphs in a third, etc, similar to e.g. Matlab. matlab3.png The user should be given more flexibility...

### @programname?

Hi

How can I get the name of the program being executed? I know that @runpath gives the path of the program being executed, but I have not yet found the command that provides a string with the name of the program being executed.
