### Random number generation in eviews

Posted:

**Wed Apr 14, 2010 4:36 am**I have estimated two time series models for two different countries. I use these models to forecast the future value of the endogenous variable in both countries. Howevere, I solve the model stochastically using following options: "Calc from entire sample" in "confidence Interval" box and "Bootstrap" in "Innovation generation". The problem is that I can't ensure that the two models (for two countries) are solved using the same random number. I would like to genertare a random number and then use this random number to select a random shock in the same order in both models. I will appreciate if you can give me some directives if it is possible to control random number generation in eviews.
