Hi All

I would like to estimate my model on a quarterly basis, and would like to update the steady-state ratios (cy iy gy and many others) for each estimation.

I typically do this by saving the numerical values great ratios in the data file and then loading the data file early in the dynare mod file and assigning cy= value1, iy=value2 and so on…, picking the corresponding values from the loaded data file.

I wonder if there is a way to automate this in a block…For bigger, more detailed models, we will have more steady-state ratios to update. Does the preprocessor offer a solution?

Thanks
