import attribute as "Display Name" from excel

Postby ezradg » Sun Nov 22, 2020 9:27 am

Greetings--is there a way to read attributes from an excel file into the "Display Name" so that is what shows up on charts, etc. Unlike "Description" that populates the pre-defined "Description" attribute in the label, EViews is apparently reading "Display Name" as a custom attribute, and showing up in the label "Display Name01"

Thank you!

No, but you could write a quick loop to loop through and assign display names from the custom one after the import.

Thanks Gareth--that is what I am doing now. Just thousands of series so not super efficient!. Might be a nice add to future updates.
