spool naming

Postby startz » Tue Nov 10, 2020 3:31 pm

It would be nice if there were a way to reference the latest object added to a spool, for purposes of naming and commenting. Right now it seems one has to keep count to reference untitled01, untitled02, etc if the spool is being loaded by a pon statement.

Also, getting some very odd errors.
Here's my code

and here's the error message. Something seems to be mis-parsing the command.

We cannot replicate the issue. You shouldn't have to but if you restart EViews does the problem still persists?
