Specify the endogenous variables to be traced when solving the model

Specifies the endogenous variables for which you wish to keep intermediate calculations at the next deterministic simulation. The intermediate results of all traced variables will be part of the model solution output. Tracing intermediate values may give you some idea of where to look for problems when a model is generating errors or failing to converge.

Syntax

model_name.settrace [endogenous_list]

If the endogenous_list of variables is omitted, settrace clears out the existing trace specification.

Examples

model1.trace gdp cons interest cpi

specifies that GDP, CONS, INTEREST, and CPI should be traced at the next simulation.

If you then issue the command:

mod1.settrace

EViews will clear the trace list.
