User’s Guide : Basic Data Analysis : Series : Label
This view displays a description of the series object.
You can edit any of the field cells in the series label, except the Last Update cell which displays the date/time the series was last modified. Each field contains a single line, except for the Remarks and History fields which can contain up to 20 comment lines. Note that if you insert a line, the last (of the 20) line of these fields will be deleted.
The Name is the series name as it appears in the workfile; you can rename your series by editing this cell. If you fill in the Display Name field, this name may be used in tables and graphs in place of the standard object name. Unlike ordinary object names, Display Names may contain spaces and preserve capitalization (upper and lower case letters).
You may click in the left-hand cell above the Remarks field to define a custom attribute for use in the workfile details view and for database search. Simply enter the name of your attribute in the left-hand cell, and the attribute value in the right-hand cell. See “Adding Custom Attributes in the Label View” for discussion.
See “EViews Databases” for further discussion of label fields and their use in Database searches.
