Default Database

Postby mmiller2 » Wed Dec 14, 2016 1:15 pm

I sometimes minimize EViews when a program is running so that I can work on other things while waiting for the program to complete. I noticed yesterday that doing so can sometimes affect what EViews considers to be the default database. I created the following program to demonstrate this issue.

Code: Select all

' Mimimize EViews window while running: default database is bank1 (n = 1)
' Leave EViews window up while running: default database is bank2 (n = 2)

wfcreate(wf=work, page=a) a 1901 2099

db(type=aremos) bank1
genr x = 1
copy x bank1::x
delete x

sleep 3000

db(type=aremos) bank2
genr x = 2
copy x bank2::x
delete x

genr n = ::x
n.sheet
