EViews

EViews is a popular package for econometric analysis, forecasting and simulation.   Series and Series Alpha objects are supported.

 

Reading EViews

 

Stat/Transfer can read data from versions later than version 6. 

 

All field types are supported on input: single and double precision numeric series, compressed numeric series, alpha compressed series and date, time, and date-time.

 

EViews dated, regular frequency workfiles are transferred to an output file in which each series will be represented by separate variables.  In addition Stat/Transfer will add two new variables, "date_start" and "date-end" to reflect the frequency that is used in the file.  Other workfile structures are simply transferred to tables with each series presented by a separate variable.  All regular date frequencies are supported, with two exceptions, "Daily-custom week" and "intraday."

Number of the records in the files is defined by the number of observations stored in the “Range” EViews object.

 

Writing Eviews

 

Stat/Transfer writes Version 5 EViews files, which can be read by Eviews 5 or higher.
