You'll have to use a program to bring that in as a panel.

In EViews 8:

Code: Select all

wfopen c:\temp\sheetpanel.xls byrow range="TANGIBILITY!a1:e101" @rename * *_tang
import c:\temp\sheetpanel.xls byrow range="PAYOUT!a1:e101" @rename * *_payout
import c:\temp\sheetpanel.xls byrow range="GROWTH!a1:e101" @rename * *_growth
import c:\temp\sheetpanel.xls byrow range="SIZE!a1:e101" @rename * *_size
import c:\temp\sheetpanel.xls byrow range="EPS!a1:e101" @rename * *_eps
import c:\temp\sheetpanel.xls byrow range="TAX!a1:e101" @rename * *_tax
import c:\temp\sheetpanel.xls byrow range="DE!a1:e101" @rename * *_de
import c:\temp\sheetpanel.xls byrow range="CASH!a1:e101" @rename * *_cash

pagestack(page=panel) ?_cash @ ?*
rename _* *

You're probably best off just re-arranging the data in Excel.

Hi Gareth,

I was trying to do the exercise by using the second data. I downloaded it and tried in version 7.1.

After doing the stacking in new page, I didn't get the id01 and id02! so I can't continue to the next step: unstacking..variable etc.

What seems to be the problem?

Thanks.

Dx

Thanks.

I think it is different.

If you look at you posted workfile is says:

c
id01
id02
resid
state
variable
yr

What I got after new stacking:

c
resid
state
var01
variable
yr

there is no id01 and id02?

Hi Gareth,

attached is my data, formatted the same as your second example. I am new to eviews that is why I am trying to learn the basics..

I really want to know how to convert this excel format to eviews panel data..If possible, can you kindly give me step by step procedure to convert this to panel data? I may actually add some more variables on this later on.

I am using version 7.1

Thanks in advance.

Best.

Dx

Use "num?" as the stacking id in the page stacking part.

Use "firms var" as the unstacking id, and "var01" as the obs id in the unstacking part.

Hello Gareth,

I am using the second type of format on "Re: How to entre data into a panel workfile.". On Panel_STK workfile page, I type alpha var2..... in the command pane to create a new alpha series containing valid names. Once i stroke enter, a messages appears asking if I want to delete "variable" series. By tapping on "yes"tab, the "variable" series disappears but var2 series does not create. Any idea what I am doing wrongly? Thanks
