Dear Prof. Juilliard,

I’m a student of Matlab and Dynare (I always have programmed in Gauss)

I’m going to estimate a NKM model with nonlinearities in the Phillips curve for the euro zone. Before starting estimation process I’m trying to simulate the model with parameters derived in previous estimations and I have the message:

Error in ==> dynare at 26

evalin(‘base’,fname) ;

Could you please tell what I’m doing wrong?

Best

Ramon

nonlinear.mod (658 Bytes)

At line 21, it should say:

y= y(+1)-tau*(int-inf(+1))+g;

(that is - replace infla with inf).

The file runs correctly now. Does this solve your problem?

Thanks a lot!!!

I see you were getting the *Error in ==> dynare at 26

evalin(‘base’,fname) * error message.

What are the most common reasons for getting that same message?

(i.e. at first steps, with no other error messages, as in the cas of some typos, path problems, etc).
