Hi,

Is there a way to calculate the rank of a matrix/ echelon form of a matrix in eviews?

Thanks

Kindly note that I have a symmetric matrix and hence when I try to use @ranks, I'm getting an error.

I am searching for the RANK of a matrix (as in matrix algebra) that is done by Gaussian elimination-- not ranking based on ascending/ descending order. Looks like EViews doesnot offer that functionality

developing one now!

Thanks Gareth, It worked after I transformed the sym object to matrix.
