EViews 12 update - Use of "$" in variable names

Postby DawnNH » Wed Aug 11, 2021 8:16 am

I've just installed the latest update for EViews 12. When importing data from excel with variable names ending "$", a "_" is added, so that the variables now ends "_$". As a quick fix I tried "replace *_$ *$" and get the following error: "ABW_XTN\$ is an illegal or reserved name." (Raw series name ABW_XTN_$, so it is trying to replace "_" with "\")

I have sorted it by creating a group with all variables ending "_$" and renaming them one at a time. This doesn't cause an error...
