Prevent EViews to throw an error when object is not found in database

Postby loulouviews » Mon Oct 03, 2016 7:35 am

Hi,

I'm fetching multiple timeseries in a locally stored database. Some timeseries may not exist but I don't want EViews to throw an error if the timeseries does not exist, is it possible ?

To be more precise, my database is a copy of Eurostat HICP database. My loop is on countries and some HICP indexes does not exist for some countries.

Best,

Louis

Unfortunately there is no way to ignore the error.

I would try querying for the series (see http://www.eviews.com/help/helpintro.html#page/content%2Fprogref-%40wquery.html) and if it is found then fetch the series.
