RE: COMMAND CAPTURE PROGRAM TO WORK AS MACRO?

Postby TrinityDCU » Wed Nov 22, 2017 12:09 pm

Hie Guys.

Can you please help me with the below:

I want to run a series of repetitive econometric tests for 300 Variables. hence I want to automate the process by having Eviews replicate the tests I would have done with the corresponding output. The sample code from the Command capture using Eviews 10 (interactive window) is as below
How can I modify this program code so that I will just paste the Program (Derived from Making a Program from the Command Capture window) it for other variables and get all the ouput with names as I want them to as MACROS do.

For now if I do it sometimes I get errors like syntax error and that there is no Workfile. Also when I input the program for other variables it just Runs it but does not Show Results of the Output as I would have done in the First variable. For instance after running an OLS I rename it as Table01 and unit test Table02 etc. I would this to happen when I use the program for other variabes, but its just not working.

Is there a way of "altering" the Saved Program from Command Capture so that it can work just as Macros do as in following all the Steps I would have done?

Error Message Example-No workfile exists - Use NEW or OPEN to create or load a workfile in "LS(COV=HAC) REAL C DIFFERENTIAL".

EXAMPLE CODE TAKEN FROM COMMAND CAPTURE WINDOW AND SAVED AS A PROGRAM

wfcreate a 1870 2013
import(link) "C:\Users\Tatenda\Desktop\HW2 DATA\CODE PRACTISE\CANADA\DIFFERENTIAL.xls" range=Sheet1 colhead=1 na="#N/A" @freq A @id @date(year) @destid @date @smpl @all
import(link) "C:\Users\Tatenda\Desktop\HW2 DATA\CODE PRACTISE\CANADA\REALRATE.xls" range=Sheet1 colhead=1 na="#N/A" @freq A @id @date(year) @destid @date @smpl @all

Perhaps you could describe what you want the program to do?
