Step 1. The prime step is open the software.

  • Workfile structure type à undated means cross-sectional data, dated means time series data, and panel data means a mix of both cross-sectional as well as time series.
  • Date Specification selects the time period type (annually, quarterly, monthly, weekly, etc.)
