Re: Series attributes and wfrefresh

We made a change to allow any custom attributes (that don't conflict with any attributes coming from the refresh source) to remain. This will be available in the next EViews 10 patch.

Re: importtbl/importmat: bug when importing a "one-cell range" from excel

This is actually a bug with the IMPORT (which IMPORTTBL uses internally). If there are other non-blank cells around the cell you're trying to import, IMPORT treats your range as a starting point instead of a start & end point. This might actually be a feature of IMPORT instead of a bug -- I'll h...

Re: Connect to External databases

I've had the same problem as well (but not with FRED). There is no possibility that it's the internet connection in my case, as I can access the data bases easily using R. For example, I can get data from the ECB easily using the following R instruction: pdfetch_ECB(c("EXR.D.AUD.EUR.SP00.A&quo...

Re: close matlab through eviews if the program is open

I'm not sure what you're asking for. You can change the type of MATLAB instance that EViews launches via XOPEN by changing the Program ID that is used. If you go to our Options menu/General Options/External program interface dialog, you will see a dropdown for MATLAB that contains any Program IDs fo...

Re: Pagesave - the option "nonames"

I know that in EViews 4 and older, nonames used to be an argument instead of an option -- which is why it continues to work in EViews 10 since our program parser still supports it. What I can't figure out is why nonames is not working as an option as it says in our documentation. We'll have to look ...

Re: Object Icons very Small

It's most likely a monitor resolution issue. If the friend's monitor hashigher resolution than yours, this can make everything look smaller, even if you maximize the main EViews window. You can try playing with the DPI (dots per inch) setting in Windows to make everything larger and easier to read. ...

Re: bad window size

There are a few ways to handle this unfortunate condition where our default window sizes causes the bottom portion of the second window you open to be hidden upon maximized display on a Surface Pro: 1. The scrollbar on the far right of the EViews frame will let you scroll down the entire client area...

Re: Moving License Manager to VMWare

Our software will work on a vm but it also depends on your serial number(s). Email support@eviews.com with the serials you'd like to move to release them from your current server and get confirmation you can use them on a vm.

Re: How to change the license server for Excel Add-in

You can actually see the location of where each of your Excel add-ins are running from by going to the Excel File menu/Options/Add-Ins, then looking at the Location column (or label below): excel_addin_dialog.png But this error usually happens if you previously had 32-bit EViews installed on the sam...

Re: logmode

Found the problem.

RGETS internally tries to adjust the logmode. That seems to clear the current log window. I'll look into it and let you know when we have a fix.

Re: Encountered an improper argument

Sorry, but I can't seem to recreate the issue. Which version and build of EViews are you using? I assume you are clicking the "SaveAs" button in the program window? Does it only happen in particular circumstances or does it happen every time for you? Where is your current Path pointing to?...

Re: logmode

I'm using EViews 10 Aug 7 2017 build and I can't seem to recreate the error. Here's my test program:

Code: Select all

logmode(autosave=on, float) all
create u 10
series x = rnd


Does this cause a problem on your build? If so, try updating to the latest patch.

Re: Powerpoint link not working

I took a quick look at EViews OLE in EViews 10 and it all seems in working order... I did notice that Office context menus look different now for some reason. I don't see Paste Special in the right-click menu option anymore. I had to go to the Home ribbon tab / Clipboard group / and click on the Pas...
