Re: EViews 7 memory death

Ok, we figured out what was causing the problem. Our help system for EViews 7 went back to using CHM files which are Compiled HTML files displayed by Windows itself using an embedded Internet Explorer browser control. Normally, this help window runs in the same process as EViews itself so it has to ...

Re: DSGE modelling

I've confirmed that this is a MATLAB limitation with their COM interface. They do not allow you to pull in struct members directly. At the MATLAB support site, they suggested doing the same as I suggested yesterday, namely copy the struct member into a temporary variable first, then get the temporar...

Re: DSGE modelling

You can probably work around the XGET problem with your structure vector by copying it to a separate standalone vector variable first (e.g. x = oo_.steady_state), and then retrieving that stand alone vector separately. I'm not familiar with MATLAB, but if you can provide a short sequence of MATLAB c...

Re: Eviews 7 Beta finally expires

You're probably trying to install the 7 Beta Patch instead of the full 7 Beta. You need to download the full 7 Beta installer and then run the 7 Beta Patch over that. We've removed the official download link for the 7 Beta installer off of our website since 7 is officially now available. But I'll se...

Re: Put ODBC database in registry and link to series?

Actually, one change -- the odbc dsn text file might have to look like this instead:

[ODBC]
DRIVER=kdb+
DBQ=localhost:5001
UID=usr
PWD=pwd

And when you use the DSN in EViews, specify the full path to it like this:

wfopen(type=odbc) d:\dsns\myconnection.dsn "select * from tablename"

Re: Put ODBC database in registry and link to series?

Actually, after reading your copied text from the kx site, it looks like it is possible to store the username and password in the DSN. However, you need to manually edit the DSN text file after you create it using ODBC Admin because apparently the ODBC wizard doesn't work properly. Create your KDB+ ...

Re: Put ODBC database in registry and link to series?

The DSN works for all ODBC data sources, but we do make special allowances for 3 specific database vendors, namely, SQL Server, Oracle, and DB2. With those vendors you can do the following: wfload(type=sqlserver, server=servername, user=username, password=pwd) DatabaseName "select * from TableN...

Re: Put ODBC database in registry and link to series?

Unfortunately, EViews 6 currently does not support putting an ODBC data source in the EViews Database registry. And because of that, you cannot have a workfile that automatically refreshes linked data from an ODBC data source. However, there is a workaround and that make the refresh process easier. ...
