Re: alpha series and cross-sectional data

I've read our posts a couple of times, but I'm having a real problem understanding what you're trying to do :(

Re: Excel Import: Date Issues

You need to restructure your workfile so that it has the correct format. You can do this by clicking on Proc->Structure/resize current page.

You probably want "Dated - Specified by Date Series".

Re: Some options when running programs

You can use the READ command to read in Excel data into an existing (i.e. open) Workfile. Be warned though, the READ command is a little quirky and no where near as nice or easy to use as the OPEN command. There isn't a command that will put data into an existing file, or create one if an existing o...

Re: Some options when running programs

The first part of your question is somewhat ambiguous. At first glance I thought you meant that object windows pop up (a common question we get asked is how to stop them from doing so), but it appears you're actually talking about actual workfiles getting created and shown. Well, off the top of my h...

Re: External call of Eviews program

Currently the only way you can call an EViews program is via the command line. You can add the name of your program as a parameter to the EViews executable (along with any inputs to your program). For example: "c:\program files\eviews6\eviews6.exe" "c:\my programs\my program.prg"

Re: Regressing AR(x) model

You'll have to use two for loops, one inner loop to build up the string with the AR terms:

Code: Select all

vector(20) hs
equation eq
for !i=1 to 20
%regs=""
for !j=1 to !i
%regs = %regs + "ar(" + @str(!j) + ") "
next
eq.ls y {%regs}
hs(!i) = eq.@aic
next

I think we'd need to see the file to answer this properly. Could you email in to support@eviews.com along with your serial number?

Re: math functions for coef

coefficient vectors aren't really intended to be used for calculations etc..., so yes, math functions will not work upon them.

Re: Control variables seem not to work

Did you paste it into an EViews program, or did you paste it into the command window?

Control variables can only be used in an EViews program.


This is the case for both Standard and Enterprise editions.

Re: Control variables seem not to work

Are you sure it isn't working?

The following code works fine for me:

Code: Select all

create u 100
!y=3
series test = !y
series test2 = {!y}

Re: old style help screens!

It is probably a browser/security incompatibility. Not sure how much more help I can be other than that.


For what its worth, I normally use the PDF versions of help rather than the help system itself - I find them faster and easier to search.

Re: EGARCH (1,1) FTSE100 daily data Error in Omega Calculation

Starting Values methods can be chosen on the options tag of the estimation dialog. You can also tell EViews to display the starting values options on the equation output.

Re: EGARCH (1,1) FTSE100 daily data Error in Omega Calculation

I'm not sure I follow what you are saying, exactly. You've estimated the same EGARCH model with three different software packages, using the same data (I presume) and achieved three different results, with the EViews result standing out a little more from the other two? Do you know what the starting...
