error when seasonally adjusting multiple series

Postby pcruzd » Fri Mar 08, 2019 8:47 am

Hello,
I am having trouble when seasonally adjusting (x13) multiple series. I am getting an error that appear only certain times and I have to run the exactly same code 5 to 6 times until the error magically doesn't appear. The error that I am getting is: 'Unable to open file c:\users\username\appdata\ev_temp\evx13tmp.spc in "SER{!X}.X13("SAVE="D11 D10")". Please help

PS. I'm using Eviews 9.5

That error indicates that something went wrong inside the X-13 executable. Unfortunately we don't have any control over what goes on inside it, so there isn't much we can say.

Thanks Gareth,
So far I've been able to manage it using setmaxerror and @errorcount, but Im having a problem when additional errors appear (like no seasonallity in the series). So I would like to know if there's any way to know what type of error im getting while running the program. For instance, to generate a lable with the text that appears in the log file when an error occurs.

Actually, my code is

Code: Select all

!err = 0
for !x = 1 to 50
   SER{!X}.X13("SAVE="D11 D10")
   !newerr = !err + @errorcount
   if !newerr>!err then
      !err = !newerr
      !count = 0
      !maxcount = 20
      while !count <= !maxcount
         SER{!X}.X13("SAVE="D11 D10")
         !newerr = !err + @errorcount
         if !newerr=!err then
            exitloop
         endif
         !count = !count+1
      wend
   endif
next

I just realized I posted an old code with errors, here is the actual one:

Code: Select all

for !x = 1 to 50
   !err = @errorcount
      SER{!X}.X13("SAVE="D11 D10")
     !check= @errorcount-!err
      if !check>0 then
         !count = 0
      !maxcount = 20
         while !count <= !maxcount
            !err = @errorcount
               SER{!X}.X13("SAVE="D11 D10")
              !check= @errorcount-!err
            if !check=0 then
               exitloop
            endif
            !count = !count+1
         wend
      endif
next
