Comparing Large Workfiles

Postby BretBertolin » Thu Oct 13, 2016 1:08 pm

When I try to compare two IHS Global Insight U.S. Macro workfiles, the "result" column only shows "added" for every variable. I know virtually all the variables have changes and few, if any , are "added."

I am wondering if it is because these workfiles are pretty large. I have not experienced this with smaller workfiles.

I will attach an example of two workfiles that produce this result.

When comparing workfiles to each other, EViews tries to match page names as well. Since these two workfiles have different page names, it assumed all the objects from CTL1016 was new compared to CTL0916 because the page name changed.

To compare page to page, simply enter the page name when doing the comparison:

Code: Select all

wfcompare * ctl0916.wf1::Ctl0916\*
