Series attributes and wfrefresh

Postby tvonbrasch » Wed Nov 08, 2017 11:30 pm

Hi

I have a series that is linked to a Macrobond database and where I have created an attribute using the .setattr command. However, when I update the workfile, using wfrefresh, the attribute of the series is removed.

Is it possible to refresh a workfile and at the same time keep the manually created attributes of a series? If not, is there another smart way of storing information about linked series?

We made a change to allow any custom attributes (that don't conflict with any attributes coming from the refresh source) to remain. This will be available in the next EViews 10 patch.
