eviews output? Where is it?

Postby Eoghan » Mon Mar 20, 2017 5:18 pm

I'm trying to get the p-value from my f-statistic.

I ran the command: !pval = @qfdist(.0319,3,1226) and eviews at the bottom left says !pval successfully computed

Where does the result go? I need what it computed

It is stored in the program variable !pval.

Program variables disappear once the program has run.

If you want something permanent, use a scalar object instead

Did you define it in your program?

Hello,

The syntax "pvalue = !pval = @qfdist(.0319,3,1226)" tests whether !pval is equal to @qfdist(.0319,3,1226) and assigns that true/false result to pvalue, it does not assign the value returned by @qfdist to both !pval and pvalue. It sounds like "pvalue = @qfdist(.0319,3,1226)" is what you want.
