model identity not solving exactly

Is there any reason why an identity in a model would not solve exactly? I have a model with numerous equations, some estimated but some identities (such as totals, ratios or other relationships), and I am seeing these identities be ever so slightly off when I solve the model.

more "excel" functionality in Dated Data Table view

I guess the technical things and increased analytical/database functionality are the main requests people are making, but it would be really nice if the Dated Data Table views offered more of the functionality that Spreadsheet views do. Namely, I wish that the "auto" calculations like sum ...

Tables that change? ...or how to save customized series formats from Groups?

I regularly run and update a model, and I like to look at how certain series in the model change with each update or modification. I usually use groups to create tables for this purpose, but I am wondering if there is a better tool. Often, I want to look at both the quarterly and annual results of a...

Re: how to turn on "merge" with fetch command

That is easy! Thanks. I think this was my first time not just typing a fetch command.

how to turn on "merge" with fetch command

When I type a fetch command into the command window, I get prompted with a dialogue about whether I want to overwrite or merge the data. But if I have a fetch command in a program, it seems that the default is to overwrite, and I cannot find any options for the fetch command that would let me set it...

Re: @force() option equivalent in X12 seasonal adjustment?

Any ideas for this? I am still looking for a solution on getting a @force() option working in X-12.

@force() option equivalent in X12 seasonal adjustment?

I am having some trouble getting seasonally adjusted series to match my previous program's output using the X-13 in Eviews. Previously, I have been using X-11, but the X-13 output seems to be polluted by a lot of noise in the final years, which is introducing some undesireable volatility that clearl...

Re: efficiently storing large amounts of data to server

Speaking of servers, my server just got changed to a long and cumbersome name. Is there a way to set the server option for the fetch/store command globally so that I can leave out the "server=..." part of the fetch/store commands? Right now, I write: fetch(d=MYBANK,t=F,server=MYSERVER) MYS...

Re: efficiently storing large amounts of data to server

This is going to a FAME database on a server.

efficiently storing large amounts of data to server

I sometimes store a very large amount of data to a server, about 4000 series with a few years of monthly data. The way I do this currently is to store the {string} of all the series that I am going to store, but it takes quite a while for the store command to finish running (20-30 minutes). Is there...

Re: auto sum feature

Thanks, I did not realize that group live stats and series live stats were different options.

That PLOT command would be perfect IF I was still allowed to drag the timeframe bar along the bottom like when I open as a group.

Re: auto sum feature

Sure. In Excel, you can open a spreadsheet and type a few numbers randomly in a row of cells. Highlight these numbers, and in the bottom right corner on the status bar, Excel will report Average, Count, and Sum. Eviews seems to be supposed to do this too. If you create a series and open it in Eviews...

Re: auto sum feature

I know this sounded like a stupid question, but the "Live Statistics" for spreadsheets seem to often not work. I have tried turning them off and on and recreating my group of series, but they are still off. I wish I could get them to stay on reliably.

auto sum feature

Currently, when I view a series or group and highlight some cells, Eviews displays an "auto" average in the left of the bottom bar. It would be great if it could also show a sum and maybe even count too. Is there something in settings I can change? If not, please consider this a feature re...

good way to batch set add factors

I'm looking for a good way to 1) set a group of add factors so "that equation has no residuals at actuals" 2) make it so that the add factors for the sample are equal to the add factors that were in effect for a certain period. for example, if the add factor for GDP in 2019q3 was -2, I wan...
