scenario command - desc option

Postby tvonbrasch » Thu Apr 12, 2018 5:10 am


I am having trouble with understanding the DESC option in the SCENARIO command. Running the code:

Code: Select all

wfcreate u 100
   genr x=50+0.03*@trend+2*nrnd
   genr log(y)=3*log(x)+nrnd

model _m
   _m.append 0*x+log(y)=3*log(x)

_m.scenario(n,a="_1") "scenario 2"

works fine. However, If you replace the last line with

Code: Select all

_m.scenario(n,a="_1",desc="test") "scenario 2"

I get the error message:
error.PNG (27.46 KiB) Viewed 8746 times

How should one use the desc option? When I do this manually in the model object (i.e., change the description of a scenrio) I get the following code in the CAPTURE window:

Code: Select all

_m.scenario(desc="test", usedesc) "scenario 1"

But this code does not work if I include it in the program.....?

Can you please take a look at it?
