I'm programming a unit root test that requires uncorrelated residuals, for these i´m using information criteria to select the optimal lag length. The problem is with the command @hq, when i try to save the hq criteria in a scalar or in a control variable the following error appears "@HQ is an illegal or reserved name." (which does not appear with the other information criteria commands i.e @aic @schwarz). I`m using Eviews 9 64-bit version.

Code: Select all

genr x=rnd
equation e1.ls x c
!hannan1=@hq 'first error
scalar hannan2=@hq 'second error

However if I try to save it in a series it works.

Code: Select all

series hannan3=@hq

Best regards.

You're missing the equation name:

Code: Select all

genr x=rnd
equation e1.ls x c
!hannan1=e1.@hq 'first error
scalar hannan2=e1.@hq 'second error
