### Manual entry of coefficients

How would I manually input the coefficients I want in an equation rather than having them estimated by eviews?

I have an equation with known parameters that I want to apply to some series to get a forecast. I could do it in excel but I was wondering if Its possible in eviews so that I can calculated rmses with it.

That's what the model object is for. Type the equation manually in the model and solve it.

Ok great. Now what do I do if I don't have a dependent variable? I'd like to compute what the independent variables and my coefficients imply for a series that does not exist. Is there a way to do that?

Non-normality and collinearity are NOT problems!

Code: Select all

`series forecast = 1 + 2*x1 + 3*x2`

for example
