Object Reference : Object View and Procedure Reference : Pool
Deletes series based upon identifiers in a pool.
pool_name.delete(option) pool_ser1 [pool_ser2 pool_ser3 ...]
Follow the keyword by a list of the names of any series you wish to remove from the current workfile. Deleting does not remove objects that have been stored on disk in EViews database files.
The delete command allows you to delete series from the workfile using ordinary and pool series names.
You can delete an object from a database by prefixing the name with the database name and a double colon. You can use a pattern to delete all objects from a workfile or database with names that match the pattern. Use the “?” to match any one character and the “*” to match zero or more characters.
If you use delete in a program file, EViews will delete the listed objects without prompting you to confirm each deletion.
Force the dialog to appear from within a program.
To delete all series in the workfile with names beginning with “CPI” that are followed by identifiers in the pool object MYPOOL:
mypool.delete cpi?
