Allow copy command in programs to copy a selected set or group of series at once between wf pages

Postby mamo » Wed Feb 07, 2018 2:29 am

Dear EVIEWS team,

I (still) use Eviews 9.5 Dec 2016 build

I would like to suggest to improve the copy command in the programming and command line environment so that it allows for copying a selected set or group of series at once between wf pages (see example program below).

I am aware of workarounds to achieve the same results, such as pagecopy (which requires defining a further intermediate page), but an extended copy command would be more straightforward.

Kind regards

mamo

Code: Select all

wfcreate(page=p1) a 1990 2010
pagecopy(page=p2)
series x=nrnd
series y=nrnd
series z=nrnd
group gr x y
' The copy comand copies only the group definitions but not the series contained
' The 's' option doesn't apply here; it applies only when copying groups between wfs or dbs
copy(s) gr p1\
pageselect p1
' And also the following does not work
' pageselect p2
' %serienames="x y"
' copy {%serienames} p1\
' Yes, the following works, but then we end up with having also everything else in page 1 which is not what we want:
pageselect p2
copy *  p1\
'More flexibility in defining the set of series to be copied yould be useful
