extract from spool without pop-ups?

Postby tvonbrasch » Tue Jan 22, 2019 5:31 am

Hi

when using the command

Code: Select all

spool_name.extract(name) object_name


in a program, the table being copied pops up in the EViews window. Is it possible to extract a copy of a specified spool object without the part being copied popping up in the EViews window? If not, can you please add such an option?

I am not seeing the pop-up. What are you attempting to extract? Is it equation output, a spreadsheet, or other?

Secondly, what is being asked in the pop-up?

OR.....

Do you want to keep the newly created object from being displayed?

Sorry for being imprecise,

Yes, I would like to keep the newly created object from being displayed. Is there a way of doing that?

We are working on adding an optional command that will stop the window from appearing. As soon as it makes the next patch, we will post the syntax.

The patch containing the fix has been released.

For future versions of EViews 11 and on the default will be to not show the extracted object. For EViews 10, however, you can now use the hide option. For example,

Code: Select all

myspool.extract(hide, obj1) untitled01  'this will prevent the newly created object obj1 from being displayed


With the addition of this new option, this does mean you can no longer create an object name 'hide'.
