I want to put quarterly dates starting in 2002Q1 on horizontal axis of graphs of my shock decompositions?

How could I do this?

Try the dseries object. An example is at github.com/DynareTeam/dynare/blob/master/tests/dates/fs2000.mod, with the data being at github.com/DynareTeam/dynare/blob/master/tests/dates/fsdat_simul.m

Dear jpfeifer,

I im getting this message error:

[code]Error using -

Error in demean (line 50)

I attach my files.

mymod.rar (149 KB)

Are you using Dynare 4.5?

Yes dear jpfeifer, I am using Dynare 4.5.0 in Matlab 2015a.

Please, how could I fix this?

Thanks

ALdo

That is strange, because I am getting

[quote]Error using print_info (line 110)

Likelihood is not a number (NaN) or a complex number

Error in print_info (line 110)

error(‘Likelihood is not a number (NaN) or a complex number’);

which happens in a different line, suggesting that you were using a different mod-file than the one you provided.

Hi Aldo ; can you tell me how you fix this problem?

I solved it modifying plot_shock_decomposition.m.

In line 82 I replaced

`initial_date = dates('1Y');`

with

`initial_date = dates('2002Q1');`

Thanks for your answer

But i can’t open your file(.rar) …can you send your .mod dynare code?

The .rar is not necessary.

plot_shock_decomposition.m is in C:\dynare\4.5.7\matlab
