Importing Kenneth French's data

Postby puf » Thu Jan 19, 2017 7:10 am

I would like to import data from very popular Kenneth French's data library:

http://mba.tuck.dartmouth.edu/pages/fac ... l#Research

for example "Fama/French 3 Factors", "Fama/French 3 Factors [Daily]" etc.

If I use command wfopen filename, then the data is imported, but as undated workfile. Is it possible to import these data in such a way that Eviews recognizes that this data is dated?

best regards
Peter

We are currently working on an add-in to do this.

In the meantime... if you still need help with this can you list the files you're trying to open? As you know, they come in many different formats.
