Hello !

I have a question regarding how to load data (used for starting values) when using dynare++. The starting values I want to use is genereated by a Matlab program (not using dynare). I have a big model and thus do not want to enter starting values by hand in the mod file. First, I entered the starting values as a vector in the mod file (pasted from the workspace in Matlab):

Xsol = 1.32 3.24 …];

This did not work (dynare++ complained about left brackets) so I instead tried (in the mod file)

load(‘solution.mat’,‘Xsol’);

which didn’t work either.

Is there a way to easily load data when using dynare++ ?

I have more than 500 variables, so I am not too keen on entering them by hand (especially since I want to do sensitivity analysis and want to vary parameters and hence starting values)
