Shrinking workfile

Postby startz » Fri Nov 30, 2018 2:59 pm

This may be the dumbest question I've asked here in a while...

How do I save an EViews workfile while dropping observations not in the smpl? I have a 500MB workfile I need to shrink.

Only way is to contract the workfile (Proc->Contract), then save.
