Hi there!

I’m a very new Dynare user (I learned how to use it yesterday on the internet if truth be told), and I’m desperately trying to estimate my master’s thesis model.

I always end up with the following message error:

Configuring Dynare …

[mex] Generalized QZ.

[mex] Sylvester equation solution.

[mex] Kronecker products.

[mex] Sparse kronecker products.

[mex] Local state space iteration (second order).

[mex] Bytecode evaluation.

[mex] k-order perturbation solver.

[mex] k-order solution simulation.

[mex] Quasi Monte-Carlo sequence (Sobol).

[mex] Markov Switching SBVAR.

Starting Dynare (version 4.4.2).

Starting preprocessing of the model file …

ERROR: Model_Dyn_1.mod: line 18, cols 16-20: Unknown symbol: alpha

Error using dynare (line 174)

DYNARE: preprocessing failed

although there is no alpha in my code. (There was one, but I replaced it by a the first time I met this error, and it was supposed to be a parameter).

Can someone please tell me what’s wrong in my code?

Thank you very much!
