Integration of EViews with custom external database

I have a custom time series database server which I would like to integrate with EViews. To interface with the server the client sends a request in XML over HTTP. The server returns an XML block over HTTP that contains numerical data in binary form with base64 encoding. Is it even technically possib...

Summing columns using a wildcard

Is there anyway I can create a new series that is the sum of a collection of series, where the collection is specified with a wildcard? For example:

Here I want make x equal to the sum of all series ending in _commonsuffix.

Thanks.

Re: Looping through multiple arrays

I see how the group solution is useful for pre-existing series. However, in my example I have (a) pre-existing series (those items in the database), (b) strings not enclosed in quotes which are meant to be part of an object name, and (c) pure strings which are used as a title.

Error handling

Does EViews have any mechanism for error handling? It seems clear from the documentation that there is no try/catch feature in the language, and I also cannot find any mention of simpler error handling mechanisms. At a minimum, I would like to find a way to have my programs silently log errors and t...

Include path

Does EViews have any place where I can specify a path where EViews will automatically search for files included by the include statement. Or, is there any file I can edit that is automatically included by EViews each time it runs? I would like to be able to define a number of subroutines for use thr...
