graph.@items: add number of items as data member to the graph object

Dear Eviewers, I use Eviews 10 March 2018 built. I'd like to suggest to add a data member like "graph.@items" to the graph object in order to have quick access to the number of items shown in a graph. The work-around "@wcount(graph.@members))" does not work with graphs displaying...

Allow for panel=c option in auxiliary graph elements such as linefit

Dear Eviewers, I use Eviews 10 March 2018 built I'd like to suggest that future version of Eviews have the option of creating combined auxiliary elements in scat and xy graphs, such as "linefit()", for panel data. Currently, auxiliary specifications such as "linefit()", in xy- or...

Logaritmic scaling in graphs - does it work?

Dear Eviews team, using EVIEWS 10 March 2018 build, I am wondering if logarithmic scaling in graphs works as expected. Changing the scale from linear to logarithmic does not seem to change anything in the appearance of the graph, c.f. code below. Best, mamo wfcreate a 2000 2010 series x= @trend^2 fr...

Re: Question on graphing panel data

Many thanks - works, but gives rise to an ugly observation labeling (though this can be rectified by making cx a appropriately defined alpha series as well). This leads me to suggest an improvement: implement an additional panel option - such as "panel=interleave" - to the respective graph...

Question on graphing panel data

Dear Eviewers graphing panel data using the "line" command with the option "p=stack" generates a line chart which shows the series as ordered first along the cross sections and secondly along the time dimension. In the example code shown below this would be 1-2000 1-2001 1-2002 ....

Re: SQL code in separate file when reading data from an ODBC source?

... and furthermore, I also found that @wread automatically removes commas from the text it reads in, and it seems that this unwanted behaviour cannot be switched off. This renders @wread useless as a command for reading in structural code, such as sql code. So, I again repeat my request to the Evie...

Re: @wread buggy?

Appears to be a rather strange behaviour. Could the Eviews team kindly correct this unwanted behavior o...

@wread buggy?

Dear Eviews team, I use Eviews 10 March 2018 build. At least in this version, the command @wread seems to be buggy: 1) @wread encloses lines in quotes which is not wanted, and it does so inconsistently. See example below: lines read from text1.txt are enclosed in double quotes, not so lines read fro...

Re: SQL code in separate file when reading data from an ODBC source?

Indeed, @wread comes close to what I have in mind. Unfortunately, however, @wread seems to be buggy - at least in version Eviews 10 March 2018 build, which renders this command largely inappropriate for my purposes: 1) @wread encloses lines in quotes which is not wanted, and it does so inconsistentl...

Re: SQL code in separate file when reading data from an ODBC source?

Dear Steve, many thanks for the swift reply. One reason for sourcing out SQL code in an external text file such as sql1.txt is the wish to make a longer SQL query more easily readable by structuring it across several lines. Then, with the solution you suggest, lines in sql1.txt would become rows in ...

Dear Eviews team, I use EVIEWS 10+ SQL query code can become very long when retrieving data from an odbc source through the wfopen(type-odbc) or the respective import command and selecting the data in an SQL query. Is there a way to "outsource" the SQL query commands in a separate file whe...
