Re: WFOPEN function on CSV file changes column data type

Yeah, I actually tried both ways

Code: Select all

wfopen(scan=all) {%file} ' which I showed above
wfopen {%file} scan=all


Not working.

Re: WFOPEN function on CSV file changes column data type

Hi Gareth,

Thanks for the suggestion, but it doesn't seem to work.

I tried this:

Code: Select all

wfopen(scan=all) {%file}


it seems gives me a series for that column with NAs replacing all the characters.

Am I doing anything wrong with that code? Please let me know. Thanks.

Philip

WFOPEN function on CSV file changes column data type

Hi All, I am still using EViews 8.1 and I have this question I don't seem to have a way to solve. I wrote a program that sucks in csv files (panel datasets with date id and cross id columns) into eviews, convert them into dated panel using pagestruct, but before I could do anything, I found out that...

Residuals series used to calculate WLS Standard Errors

Hi, I am trying to figure out how Eviews calculate the weighted least squares standard errors, and I found out that, by using the residuals from the Actual,Fitted,Residuals Table, the sqrt of the diagonal of the resulting variance-covariance matrix is off by a constant compared to the reported stand...

No ;) Just an example. If you want, call it tab_abc.

Subroutine Local

Hey there, I am writing a subroutine that requires looking data up from a table. I tried to use "subroutine local" because I don't want the program to store any intermediate elements, but somehow I couldn't make it recognize that the table exists (I just refer to the table "TABLE(!i+1...

Graph object

Hey Guys, how are you? I have been writing a program that creates a graph object at first run and check if that object exists (using @isobject()) in subsequent runs, but since I sometimes want to look only at the resid and other times the Dep Var + resid, I run into trouble when trying to show the l...

Shortcut Keys to Add-ins

Hi All, I wonder if it's possible to add a shortcut key function for Add-ins into the next generation of eviews. e.g., If you go to Options in the toolbar, you can then click "O" for General Options, "G" for Graphical Defaults. I wonder if there's a way to add this functionality ...

@Stdev and DB

Hi Guys, how are you doing? I am trying to calculate the statistics of a bunch of independent variables located in the DB, and it seems to me that if I do the calculation with variables directly from the database, EViews would give me a "Syntax Error" response. e.g., scalar z = @stdev(abc)...

Equation Estimation window

Hey Guys, Is it possible, in the next version of EViews, to make resizing of the equation estimation window (or "ls") flexible? With live transformation on the variable names, currently I could only see 1 or 2 variables at one time. It would be great if that window could be expanded so tha...

Re: Slow Database Refreshing when Workfile Loads

So, I guess, if I don't want the file to open this slowly, I might have to save the data transformations within the groups somewhere else and put them in after the workfile is opened....

Re: Slow Database Refreshing when Workfile Loads

Hey Gareth....There are live data transformations within group objects (3,000+ variables), so I guess that's the main reason why it's opening so long. dbopen doesn't take more than 2 secs but Show All takes about a min or so. It's a panel dataset involving 26 cross sections (13,000 data points per v...

Slow Database Refreshing when Workfile Loads

Hi Guys, A quick question regarding database auto refreshing while workfile that are linked (symbolically, i.e., with a lot of "db::var_abc" in group objects) to the said database is loading. It used to have a pop-up window asking if the user wants to refresh data from the database; lately...

Re: Statconn (R&Eviews), loops and screen refresh

So, I guess the fastest way would be to minimize the number of transactions between R and Eviews then... which means I need to make R understands panel data correctly .... alrighty, thanks Gareth!
