Importing data

Postby bob1002 » Fri Nov 11, 2016 10:52 am

Hi,

I was wondering whether it is possible to create a date dummy variable for unstructured data. I am trying to determine the underpricing of IPOs pre and post 1st May 2007 and therefore need to create a dummy variable to do so. I am unable to import the data in any other way as there are multiple data points for several dates.

Can anyone help me on this?

Thanks,

EViews Gareth
