Control procedure

Postby modelmaker » Mon Oct 03, 2011 10:32 am

In my model, actuals for different variables end at different dates. To handle the uneven end dates for actuals, I have used the "actexist=t" option with the exclude procedure, and I have set my forecast period to start at the earliest date where endogenous actuals do not exist.

Using my forecast date range, I am trying to use a control procedure to back out an add factor for one of my endogenous variables. Since my model is supposed to exclude actuals where they exist, I had assumed that the control procedure would not produce an add factor in history - however, it does. This is causing the forecast of the endogenous variable to deviate from the target trajectory.

I can't figure out how to get the control procedure to incorporate the model's "exclude" settings.

I'm using version 7.2 Enterprise Edition.

It might be easier for us to follow what you're doing with an example.

Would you be able to email a workfile and/or program to showing an example of what you are currently doing and a description of what you would like to change about it?
