Eviews - list of features to include

Postby tvonbrasch » Sat Aug 12, 2017 6:23 am

Hi

Here is a list of features (in prioritised order) I hope you can add to the next version of Eviews:

- Allow for exogenous variable to enter the cointegrating space in a VEC models, this has been on your to do list for five years see: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=5340&p=26814#p26814 and http://forums.eviews.com/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=11368&p=39922#p39922, see also the excellent suggestions in the post http://forums.eviews.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=18196

- Multiple control model solving, the add-in http://forums.eviews.com/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=3286 should be an inbuilt feature in EViews.

- Improve window behaviour It would be great if one could fix the windows in EViews so that certain program files were in say one quadrant of the window, workfiles in another, graphs in a third, etc, similar to e.g. Matlab, see http://forums.eviews.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=19473

- ARDL function: allow the user to impose restrictions on the long run cointegrating relationship (eg homogeneity restrictions), see http://forums.eviews.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=12027

- Stochastic simulation of model containing future values of endogenous variables, see User Manual II, page 756 or post:
http://forums.eviews.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=15556&p=51947&hilit=dynare#p51947 (a minimum would be to make an addin that passes an Eviews model over to Matlab which is then solved by Dynare (see http://www.dynare.org/) and where the results are automatically transferred back to Eviews)

- Remove add-ins using code See the post http://forums.eviews.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=19689

- Printing of Norwegian vowels in pdf documents, see http://forums.eviews.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16318&p=53378#p53378

- Click-based model simulation and scenario analysis See post: http://forums.eviews.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=19136

- Links to PDFs, URLs or Word documents It would be great if one could provide a link to a PDF, a word-file or a web-page in the EViews workfile, see http://forums.eviews.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=20091

- Allow the endogenous variable to be anywhere in an equation, see http://forums.eviews.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=19084. (allow the endogenous variable in a model to enter more than once to the left hand side of the equality sign, see http://forums.eviews.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=12959&p=47562#p47562. As it is now, one has to rewrite e.g., logit models to overcome this problem. )

- Allow for importing data directly using API in Jason-Stat format. There are now plenty of organisations offering data freely using APIs, see http://forums.eviews.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=14050&p=57785&hilit=jason+stat#p57785

- Allow moving statistics functions inside models, see viewtopic.php?f=5&t=12720&p=44355&hilit=%40meansby+model#p44355

- Copy all series in a workpage using copy command viewtopic.php?f=3&t=19146

- Improve the Eviews optimizer, see viewtopic.php?f=10&t=15917&p=53141#p53141.

- Allow Eviews to connect with https addresses, see forum post: http://forums.eviews.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=18214

- Make window for active scenario wider see http://forums.eviews.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=19681

Keep up the great work, and thanks again for making the rgets addin (viewtopic.php?t=18338)

Hi

regarding importing data directly through APIs in Jason-Stat format. Now there is an easy way to do this in EXCEL for data from e.g. Eurostat, see https://stat.qumio.com/.

Maybe this can inspire the Eviews team to build such import functionality into Eviews as well.....?

I support these ideas, especially

- Allow for importing data directly using API in Jason-Stat format. There are now plenty of organisations offering data freely using APIs, see http://forums.eviews.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=14050&p=57785&hilit=jason+stat#p57785 and https://www.scb.se/en/services/oppna-data/api-for-the-statistical-database/

Its on our list, but will probably be a couple of years. Might be quicker to find someone external to build it. (Note all database connections are created in the open EViews EDX language, and can be implemented by anyone).
