Equation view ommitted-variable-test: mistake in the reporting

Dear Eviews team, I use Eviews 9.5 Dec 2016 built. There is a mistake in the reporting of the equation view for the omitted variable test. Let X be the variable to be tested for omission. The report view would say: Null hypothesis: X are jointly significant But it should be: Null hypothesis: X are n...

setattr-procedure with samples

Dear Eviews team, I am using Eviews 9.5, December 2016 built. It seems that defining new attributes using the "setattr" procedure in a program does not work with sample objects (see example below). (However, it is possible to define new attributes with sample objects manually.) Is this a b...

Subroutine time-shifting a sample object

Dear Eviews users, the program below contains the subroutine "shiftsmpl" to shift the lower and upper boundaries in pairs of period definitions in a sample object easily. This could be useful within a program applying statistical/ econometric analyses over rolling samples. The current vers...

How to make series disappear from a graph?

Dear Eviews team occasionally, one may want the make a series disappear from a graph (e.g., you may just graph the whole of a given matrix and subsequently "switch of" one or several columns). So, when trying something like a) graph.setelem(1) linepattern(none) symbol(none) or b) graph.set...

How to assign the size of a sample to a variable/scalar?

Dear Eviews team what is the most direct approach to assign the size of a specific sample to a variable or scalar within a program?

Re: Programming: bug in compareson with empty strings

Sorry for coming back on this; it may appear a bit nitty-gritty, but it may be helpful to point to users that the safe approach to comparing a string with an empty string consists of making use of the functions @isempty(), or @equna(). Strictly spoken, your reply applies to comparisons with alpha se...

Re: Direct transformations of db referenced series

Hi, indeed, it works as intended if the name of the working directory does not contain spaces (like "c:\temp" as in your example). Otherwise, the result I have reported can be replicated. The code below is the same as before, except the 2nd line which changes to a working directory with a ...

Direct transformations of db referenced series

Dear Eviews team I use Eviews 9.5 March 17 2016 build. Are direct transformations of series stored in a database, such as show d(dbn::x) meant to be feasible in Eviews? If so I am wondering about an unexpected result in circurmstances similar to the ones generated by the programme below. In short, i...
