Re: Clearing Program log

Not sure on what you want here. You can either reset the current error count or you can clear the log. Those are 2 completely different operations that are independent of one another.

Re: Data import via Macrobond database

If you open the series in your workfile, then press the properties button and select the Values tab, is the ' External link ' radio button selected? If it is not, then the series is not linked to the Macrobond database. If it is, what is the fetch string listed in the Specification for external data...

Re: fetching and converting at the same time

Can you update your copy? You are using a version more than a year old.

If the problem persists after updating, I will need a copy of your database. Please send to support@eviews.com

Re: CEIC database

Updating wouldn't hurt but I doubt it will fix the problem. There error implies you are either missing the files or the files havent been registered. If I remember correctly, the files used by EViews were independent of their desktop app and required a separate installer. This may have changed but a...

Re: Filter on description

You can however query the current workfile via the @wquery command and get a space delimited list of objects that match the criteria.

Code: Select all

We currently do not allow the modification of particular attributes for a set of the objects from the workfile window. Attributes such as 'Description' may be modified but no...

Re: Keeping metadata in the database when updating

Unfortunately not. You will have to fetch the series first, update your data, and rewrite it back to your database.
