Possible bug

Postby svilen » Thu Jun 10, 2010 9:03 am

(EV7 2010-06-01)
I think I found a possible minor bug in command READ.
Usually one can set comment right after the expression i.e.:

Code: Select all

!n = 20 'Comment about !n and 20 ....

But if you write:

Code: Select all

read(t,label=4,f2, s=Sheet) file.xls !n 'Comment....

it gives error.

In EV6 it works without any issues.

Thanks for this post, I was having the exact same problem and could not figure out why. Does the Eviews staff have any idea when the update patch will be available?

In the next few days. We are in the middle of fixing other bugs that we would like to push out together.

For the time being you can move the entire comment to the previous line.
