Naming Variables in Loop

Postby cmgconsulting » Mon Nov 17, 2008 3:13 pm

How can I name an equation after a value in an alpha variable instead of e1, e2, e3... see program below:

spool myspool
for !i=1 to 134
smpl if @crossid = !i
equation e{!i}
e{!i}.ls ssu c price acv items promoacv promounits @trend(1) @expand(period,@dropfirst) easter
myspool.append e{!i}.stats
next

I would like my regressions to be named after the first value in a variable named "COT" instead of e1, e2, e3...

Here you go:

Code: Select all

spool myspool
series obsnum = @obsnum
for !i=1 to 134
smpl if @crossid = !i
%cxname = alpha(@min(obsnum))
%eqname = "e_" + %cxname
equation {%eqname}.ls ssu c price acv items promoacv promounits @trend(1) @expand(period,@dropfirst) easter
myspool.append {%eqname}.stats
next



Where ALPHA is the name of the alpha series.
