I wonder if you can search for a description of a series in an EViews workfile, i.e. filter not only for a series name but also for a description?

Best regards,

You can however query the current workfile via the @wquery command and get a space delimited list of objects that match the criteria.

Code: Select all

@wquery("<>", "description matches arable and type=series","name")
