Semi-colon error

okay there was a bracket error which never closed. figured.

Thank you

Error using dynare (line 282)
Dynare: preprocessing failed

A)ALL THE UNKNOWN SYMBOLS ARE VARIABLES, THE VALUES OF WHICH I HAVE IN THE DATABASE I CREATED. HOW DO I SOLVE THEM HERE ?
B) ALSO THE FIRST THREE ERRORS OF MY PARAMETERS MENTIONED AS FUNCTIONS. HOW DO I SOLVE THIS ?

PLEASE HELP

Not sure if your model is really linear. But if it is, then you should be using model(linear);, not model;. Secondly, you have unknown symbols because you did not declare them as variables under the variables block.

It seems you are new to MatLab and dynare. Kindly check this website to practice a simple model, and then you can build your own model afterward. If something is unclear in this link, you can share here. Happy learning!!

Thank you so much for replying. Means a lot.

Thank You . But I have checked this link before and unfortunately it doesnt solve my problem. Also, i have twice studied Willi’s Youtube tutorials on dynare.

Could you please guide me how do I create equations for all those unknown variables. To mention them in the endogenous variable block, i will have to create equations for them. could you please help me with that ?

Awaiting your response.

Thanks

Number of endogenous variables should always match the number of equations in the model. In the example below, there are 8 endogenous variables and 8 equations. If you add J to the first equation - UC = betta*UCp*(1-delt+R) + J;, dynare will throw up unknown symbol:J because it is not declared here var Y C K L A R W I. If you want to keep J as part of the model, you should include it in the variable block like this var Y C K L A R W I J. You now have 9 endogenous variables so you should add one more non-redundant equation to the model so that number of endogenous variables (9) = the number of equations (9).

By the way, you should not just check the example, you should practice it in dynare. Get some simple models, practice with it, before building your own model. Here is a tutorial (NTG8.pdf (1.1 MB) ). Read it, practice with it, and then apply that knowledge to build your own model. It is a step by step approach. You can find many others on the internet.

Your problem is kinda very basic and that it seems this is your first time using dynare:). That is why I suggest practicing simple models first in dynare. Don’t just copy-paste the codes, read through the tutorial I sent, you will get the full picture of how to run models in dynare.

var Y C K L A R W I;
varexo eps_A;
parameters alph betta delt gam pssi rhoA;

alph = 0.35; betta = 0.99; delt = 0.025; gam = 1; pssi = 1.6; rhoA = 0.9;

model;
    #UC  = gam*C^(-1);
    #UCp = gam*C(+1)^(-1);
    #UL  = -pssi*(1-L)^(-1);
    UC = betta*UCp*(1-delt+R);
    W = -UL/UC;
    K = (1-delt)*K(-1)+I;
    Y = I+C;
    Y = A*K(-1)^alph*L^(1-alph);
    W = (1-alph)*Y/L;
    R = alph*Y/K(-1);
    log(A) = rhoA*log(A(-1))+eps_A;
end;

Thank you for your response and guidance. I shall practice and ask you if I face any problem.
I knew that number of endogenous variables should equal number of equations. Hence , couldn’t figure how to create non-redundant equations for those unknown variables .

Thank you again. I will study this and ask you again.

Non redundant equations should be derive from the optimization decisions of agents in the model, like other equations. Maybe you could share pdf of your model. Is it a variant of RBC, NK, or some standard DSGE model?

Thank you for your response again. The model is a reduced form version of the current generation of dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) model with new Keynesian features.

DSGE model with Keynesian features tutorials are here: https://sites.google.com/site/valerionispi/dsges . pdf guide with mod file.

Thank you. could you please help me decode these two errors?

thank you . my model is complete now. im moving forward with the analysis. if i face any problem, i shall ask on the forum.

thank you again for responding.

Error in apica.driver (line 836)
simu1(periods==2000);

Error in dynare (line 293)
evalin(‘base’,[fname ‘.driver’]) ;

Hello . could you please explain me these two errors ?
simu1(periods==2000) … in this “==” is written twice as dynare instructed me in a previous error to use it twice as an operator.

Please guide. Thank you

Why are you using the number 1 in the simul (for “simulation”) statement? Also, it needs to be an =, not ==. Also, please always provide the full error message, not just a snippet.

Thank you. It worked. I saw the Dynare video on youtube. Thought simul to be simu1… Thank you for guiding.

Thank u so much for taking time to help. .

are u running my model?

Thank you for your response and guidance. I shall practice and ask you if I face any problem.

Hello - Started facing problem randomly please help?
