New Data Handling Features

Enhanced Import and Linking of Data

With EViews, series objects can now be linked to an object in another workfile and to any other valid external data source that can be imported into EViews (e.g. – Excel file, Text file, ODBC database, etc...).

In addition, all series objects that are imported or fetched using EViews will now store and remember the data source regardless of link status. This allows series objects to be unlinked and re-linked as needed.

The Manage Links and Forumulae dialog has been redesigned to help you understand and manage links that currently exist in your workfile. The dialog now displays all externally linked objects and formulas, organized by their source.

Powerful New FRED Database Interface

EViews 9 offers an updated interface to the FRED data service provided by the Federal Reserve Bank of St Louis. The new interface includes a custom browser for navigating the available FRED data and adds support for retrieval of historical releases.

Fred Database

The new browser interface to FRED offers a number of useful tools for working with your FRED database:

Cloud Drive Support

You may now access, read, and write files directly to your cloud drive such as Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, or OneDrive drives directly from within EViews.

Dated Data Table Support

Dated data tables now allow you to store and load all of your dated data table settings to and from a dated data template. Quickly customizing summary tables of dated data has never been easier.

New Frequency Conversion Methods

EViews 9 offers new low-to-high frequency conversion methods as well as adding enhancements to existing methods.

The new conversion methods are Point, Denton, Chow-Lin and Litterman. Each of these methods supports a number of different match points (i.e. how the periods on the source page are connected to those in the destination page), including First, Last, Sum, and Average. The existing Linear and Cubic methods have been extended to allow matching on First as well as Last.
