x.sheet(w) - wide view of sheet command not working from program or commandline

Dear Eviews team, I use EVIEWS 10+ March 2018 build. The wide (w)-option in the sheet-command for series seem to work as described in the help-documentation if the option is used in a program or command window call of .sheet - see the example program below. Among other things, this disallows program...

Showing only selected sample in pool.sheet

Dear Eviews team I use Eviews 10+ March 2018 build. The programme below shows that freezing a pool-sheet freezes in fact the full sample rather than only the pre-selected one. This happens even though I do have the following options set: Spreadsheets - Layout - Series spreadsheets - One column data ...

Correct strange labelleing of estimated paramters from equations using @expand lhs

Dear Eviews team using the @expand-function in the rhs of an equation can give rise to an implausible labelling of the estimated paramters, see for example the programme below. With the programme provided below, the estimated parameters for the dummy-interaction terms from equation ls y c x x*@expan...

Re: Accessing a series from a panel wf other then the one in use

I now understand - took a bit longer, apologies (also inspecting a db containing a series coming from a panel wf helped). So the suggestion would be that series coming from a wf page with a panel structure should be stored together with some pieces of structural information in a db: 1) as it is stan...

Re: Accessing a series from a panel wf other then the one in use

I think, there are two issues here which should not be mixed up: first, structure-consistent references of panel data: the panel structure of the series in the targeted wf conforms with the structure of the referring wf page in use. Second structure-inconsistent copying (and reference) of panel data...

Re: Accessing a series from a panel wf other then the one in use

Many thanks for your answer Luckily EViews will interpret a workfile as a database, so it does in general work. However, since databases don't support panels, when using this hack, panel information is lost Contrary to what you say, it seems that EVIEWS databases do support panel structures. The cod...

Accessing a series from a panel wf other then the one in use

Dear Eviews team, I use Eviews 10+, March 2018 I detected unexpected behavior of EVIEWS when trying to access a series (named x) from an open panel file (named f2) which is different from the one in use (named f1) - both files having the same panel structure. show f2::x does not show the series x in...

AddIn groupstatby

Dear all please find attached an AddIn named "groupstatby". (In order to use it, one would rename the file attached to "groupstatby.aipz") The AddIn provides uni- or bivariate (e.g.: correlation, or covariance) statistics of the series contained in a Group, or of a single Series,...

Re: import(resize) match-merging does not work as expected with panel data

I have also detected the following unexpected behavior of the 'import' command: an unstructured workfile with more than one identifier variables can be imported by match-merging the same identifier variables in the destination page. However, the same procedure does not work with the destination page...

Re: How to check for existence of an URL?

Many thanks, this is a workable patch-around. For completeness and for whom it may be useful, I provide below a subroutine with improved code (disabling also log-messages, and resetting the error counter). However, this work-around requires reading in the respective file linked to by the url. If the...

Re: x.sheet(tform=d) transforms x rather than only affecting the view of x

Correction: I realised that x.sheet(tform=d) does not transform the series x. However, the sheet view does not revert back to the default option "tform=level" - as documented in the help text - when thereafter the tform argument is not explicitly being provided. This can be confusing and p...
