EViews Fundamentals
The following sections document the fundamentals of working with EViews:
“Introduction” describes the basics of installing EViews and offers basic information to get you started (including tips on places to look for help).
“A Demonstration” guides you through a typical EViews session, introducing you to the basics of working with EViews.
“Workfile Basics” describes working with workfiles (the containers for your data in EViews).
“Object Basics” provides an overview of EViews objects, which are the building blocks for all analysis in EViews.
“Basic Data Handling” and “Working with Data” provide background on the basics of working with numeric data. We describe methods of getting your data into EViews, manipulating and managing your data held in series and group objects, and exporting your data into spreadsheets, text files and other Windows applications.
We recommend that you browse through most of the material in the above sections before beginning serious work with EViews.
The remaining material is somewhat more advanced and may be ignored until needed:
“Working with Data (Advanced),” “Series Links,” and “Advanced Workfiles” describe advanced tools for working with numeric data, and tools for working with different kinds of data (alphanumeric and date series, irregular and panel workfiles).
“EViews Databases” describes the EViews database features and advanced data handling features.
This material is relevant only if you wish to work with the advanced tools.
