Problem fetching from FRED

Postby ghammond » Wed Jul 13, 2022 8:37 am

Hi,

I'm having trouble fetching data from FRED (using a program). I get the error message:

Database Error: FRED library error: 'Error HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component.' in "FETCH PAYEMS USMINE USCONS MANEMP USTPU USINFO USFIRE USPBS USEHS USLAH USSERV USGOVT" on line 719.

This seems to be happening for all series I'm trying to fetch from FRED.

Could you please have a look asap?

Can you send us the lines of your program fetching from FRED database?
Latest EViews patch (July 12)) has no updates for Fred database.
Are you using more than one version of EViews?

Seems to be working now, thanks.

I'm running one version of Eviews, Eviews12.

Here's an example of the fetch code in Eviews:
dbopen fred
fetch CPIAUCSL CPIAUCNS CPILFESL CPILFENS CPIUFDSL CPIUFDNS CPIENGSL CPIENGNS CUSR0000SAC CUUR0000SAC CUSR0000SAH1 CUUR0000SAH1 CUSR0000SAS CUUR0000SAS CPIFABNS CPIFABSL CPITRNNS CPITRNSL CPIMEDNS CPIMEDSL CUUR0000SAE1 CUSR0000SAE1 CUUR0000SETB01 CUSR0000SETB01 CUUR0000SAH1 CUSR0000SAH1 CUSR0000SAC CUSR0000SAS
