Check if page is already created

In Eviews code, a command such as

pagecreate(page=page1) Q 1990 2015

creates a new page named page11 if page1 already exists

Is there a way to test for the existence of a page and skip pagecreate ?

@isobject does not seem to find pages as objects

Open PRG without running

I associate my .prgs with Eviews and click on them runs the prg. I just want to open the file in a new workspace -- not run it, as most case i would first need to eduit or update the program. How can I set up the association to do so with a single click ? (besides opening eviews first)

Program Legend text

Can I change the legend text by programming means-- not through the GRAPH Options GUI

Ie something like

plot(legend= 'Unemplyement rate', 'Inflation rate') series1 series2

Just being able to use the series description, not the variable name, might be enough (assuming I can edit the description)

Re: ODBC Machine DSN

I found some unexpected results -- not hard to fix but maybe my experience will help someone else This command wfopen(type="ODBC") dsnx "select * from stateindex" creates exactly what I want and properly figures out I have a dated panel (cross sectional time series set) with Stat...

Fetch & rename

Am I right that there is no way to fetch and rename a data series in one step,
I.e. change code below to one line

fetch(d=db) oldname
rename oldname newname

in the same way copy can rename

copy db1::series1 newname

Re: Error Handling: WFCLOSE and TRY

Let me make a suggestion in this regard I think it would be useful to have a conventional try - except - else type ability (the Pythonic way is worth looking at http://docs.python.org/2/tutorial/errors.html as an example) While the method below can be adopted to probably handle 90% or more of the ap...

Re: How to extract template & left axis information by comma

Gareth -- does this mean that for a saved graph that was manipulated by hand, we can not get a command listing for all of modifications & selected options ? I thought g1.@attr("legend") might work for the legend attributes but I can not figure out how @attr() works and the possible inp...
