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...

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

Dear Eviews team I use Eviews 10, March 15 2018 built. I noticed that the "tform" option to the x.sheet view actually transforms the series x rather than only affecting the display of x, see example program below. wfcreate a 2001 2008 series x=@obsnum x.sheet ' ok x.sheet(tform=d) ' ok, bu...

Dear Eviews team, I use Eviews 10 March 2018 built the command x.sheet(tform=diff) gives rise to a break-down of Eviews. This happens with any other wrong "tform" argument provided. Of course, correct is tform=dif, but you may want to prevent Eviews from breaking down on account of a such ...

Re: @ifirst and @ilast with panel data - how to obtain the respective @crossid

This works, many thanks; btw, @ifirst(x) provides the @obsid - not the @crossid as I wrote - associated with the of the first or last non-missing value of x. scalar obsid = @ifirst(x) series tmp=@crossid scalar crossid = tmp(@ifirst(x)) series tmp=@cellid scalar cellid = tmp(@ifirst(x)) Best, mamo

@ifirst and @ilast with panel data - how to obtain the respective @crossid

Dear Eviews team,

I use Eviews 10, Mar 2018 build,

Assume x being series in a panel data workfile
@ifirst(x) or @ilast(x) give the @cellid associated with the of the first or last non-missing value of x
Is there a way to obtain also the respective @crossid ?

Best,
mamo

Re: How to extract the sample actually used for estimation in equations?

Many thanks, this works if you just want to set the sample accordingly, but it is not quite the solution if you are after getting the exact definition of the adjusted sample for further processing and usage in a program. (Note that calling @pagesmpl after "sample if resid<>na" would not pr...
