### multiple dependent variable regression

Posted:

**Sun Apr 29, 2012 8:32 am**Hi everyone,

Eviews 3.1

I am trying to calculate the regression line for a multiple dependent variable equation. So I have about 52 firms with their monthly returns and only one independent variable (index returns)

Can you please guide on how to create the formula so I can calculate the regression?

At the moment I am using a command line like

%x1 x2 x3 .....x52

equation C INDEX next

(where X1,X2 etc are the stock returns, and INDEX those of the index)

My error message is that "flow of control statement executed from the command line"

Thank you in advance
