ddrowopts, group dated table view

Postby mamo » Fri Feb 13, 2015 3:15 am

Dear Eviews team,

there seems to be an inconsistency in the definition of the ddrowopts procedure. While the Eviews help suggests the following syntax:
"group_name.ddrowopts(row) args"
I found that it is reuqired to also provide a column number, such as
"group_name.ddrowopts(row, col) args"

The column number could be any nymber and it has no effect. Provided that the objective is to set fetaures for the whole row, this would also not make sense.

Suggestion: correct the syntax of the ddrowopts procedure such that it complies with the syntax as reproted in the eviews help.

Best, mamo
PS: Using Eviews 8 with Win 7 64 bit

Dated data table apply to groups which has x number of series. Within a dated data table you can view 1 or 2 transformations for each series in the group. Additionally you can add a custom header row for each series. So for each series you can have up to 3 rows displayed. By default, only the first transformation is used. The second transformation and the custom header are turned off and must be enabled.

The docs state the syntax as:

Code: Select all

group_name.ddrowopts(series, row) args


series refers the ith series in the group
row refers to row for the ith series. 1-first transformation, 2-second transformation, 3-custom row

ddrowopts - how to format custom row? // Re: group dated table view

Postby mamo » Mon Jan 30, 2017 4:00 am

Dear Eviews team,

I use Eviews 9.5, March 17 2016 build

How can one format a custom row with a header in a dated table view?
The program below aims a formatting the 3rd row of the first series but gives rise to a break-down of Eviews
Best, mamo

Code: Select all

'Create workfile with two random series
wfcreate q 2000 2016
series x = nrnd
series y = nrnd
'Create group
group data x y
' Define dated data table
data.ddtabopts nalabel("") yrformat(YYYY) qtryrformat(YYYY[Q]Q) firstfreq(a) secfreq(q) rowheader(+b) colheader(+b) display(last, 12) +displayname
'Add a customrow header to the first view/transformation of the first series
data.ddrowopts(1,1) customrow("My X Data")
'The following line tries to format the newly created custom and bives rise to a break down of EVIEWS
data.ddrowopts(1,3) font("Calibri", 13)
'Define sample
smpl @last-11 @last
'Show dated data table
data.dtable
