How To Import Files or Manually Enter Data Into EViews 7
This video shows three ways to import data files into EViews 7. It also shows how to manually input data into the program.
The easiest way to bring a file into EViews is to click the file and drag it into the program. Sometimes this method doesn't work, especially with older versions of EViews.
The second way is to open a work file in EViews, then select "File" then "Import" from the top menu. Navigate to the spreadsheet or other data file and click OK.
The third way is to open a work file in EViews and open the data file in a spreadsheet program like Microsoft Excel or OpenOffice. Select the data you want to import, right-click and copy or press Ctrl+C, then paste into the EViews work file by right-clicking and paste or by pressing Ctrl+V.
Manual data entry in EViews is done by opening a work file, click on "Quick" in the top menu and select "Empty Group". You can then manually input your data like a spreadsheet. Click "Name" at the top of the spreadsheet box, give the set a name, and you will now have your data in the work file.
