problems with @during with hourly frequency

Hi,

When I want to create an indicative variable with @during("04/04/2020 01:00 04/06/2020 01:00") (for example) in Eviews11, it doesn't work.

Could you please help me?

Thanks

Francisco

Hello,

It appears that @during doesn't accept intraday date notation. For the time being, you can work around this by using an @after and @before clause instead, e.g.

Code: Select all

series ind = @after("04/04/2020 01:00") and @before("04/06/2020 02:00")

ok. Do you have plans that in the future @during will also work with data in time frequency? ... with time data I have also tried to estimate models with breakls (Least Squares with Break Points) but it does not work ... it is also due to the @during command What doesn't work? ... What can I do to estimate a breakls model with data in hourly frequency?

There does seem to be an issue with BREAKLS in an intraday workfile. It doesn't appear to be related to @during, but I'm still investigating. I don't have a workaround for you, other than perhaps to use an undated workfile for the time being.
