I'm trying to install an update of EViews 13.

However, when I install, I get a message saying "Could not confirm signature of file."

@colpctiles Not Working...

I'm having issues using @colpctiles to get percentile values for each column of a matrix. The online help says @colpctiles(m[, o]) will return a matrix with percentile values of each column in a matrix. The "o" should control ascending ("a") or descending ("d"). The mat...

Sorting Question

In excel, sorting a table of stock tickers and prices is simple. But I can't figure out the best way to do this in EViews. I usually put data into tables or matrices during the course of running a program. To my knowledge, tables are not easy to sort and resort, and matrices can't hold strings (like...

Factset and Eviews

We are considering using Factset. I'm wondering if EViews supports the factset database? I know, for example, that equity prices, index values, and tickerized portfolio returns can be directly imported from Bloomberg into Eviews via code (example, below). Bloomberg example code: fetch(link) bloom::&...

Re: UI Dialog Question

Gareth, Thank you for your help with this UI dialog question from a week ago. It works, but only to a point. It seems that the UI dialog only accepts a limited number of characters. The list of tickers I need to input is quite long, so most of the list gets truncated when I enter them into the UI di...

Re: UI Dialog Question

Here is a simplified excerpt from the code. When I run it, a UI dialog box opens asking for a list of stocks. I enter "CAT IBM PG", for example, in the UI box. Then, I expect the code to take each ticker that is stored in "%i" from the user supplied input and loop those stocks th...

Re: UI Dialog Question

FYI: I just realized that in my MODIFIED GARETH code, I neglected to change the "%reg" to "%i" in the following line: !result = @uiedit(%reg,"Enter the list of stocks") !result = @uiedit(%i,"Enter the list of stocks") <== FIXED BUT... I still get the same erro...

UI Dialog Question

I have some code that uses a for / next loop that takes a list of stock tickers and fetches some data from Bloomberg (MY CURRENT CODE shown below). It works well, but it would be much better if I did not have to open the program and change out the tickers in the body of the code each time the list o...

WFCREATE File X Days through Today

I'm trying to write a program that starts by creating a WF with a 5 day week periodicity that has the start date as 5 years ago from today (-1825 days) and an end date as the current date. Can't figure out how to do this. I know I need to use WFCREATE, and I know I can use @now as for either the sta...
