Syntax Error: , unexpected DIVIDE, expecting EQUAL or '.'

Hello Everyone,

I am new in Dynare, actually exploring my first simple code and when I try to run it it happens this:

Starting Dynare (version 4.5.7).
Starting preprocessing of the model file …
ERROR: firstmodel.mod: line 43, col 4: syntax error, unexpected DIVIDE, expecting EQUAL or ‘.’

Error using dynare (line 229)
DYNARE: preprocessing failed

I have been reviewing forums but I do not get how to solve it. Anyone can help? Notice that in line 43 I do not have any code write it and in line 42 there is the corresponding ‘;’. Thanks in advance for your time!

Hi, You have a lot of typos/errors in this file. Attached is a corrected version, but there is still an issue with the steady state that you need to solve.

Hi @stepan-a ,

Thank you for your help, I have still a lot to learn, any guidance about how to solve the steady state errors?


Hi Uri,

I would first check that all the variables are correctly initialized (in the initval block) and that all the parameters have values. A missing initialization may explain the NaNs. I did not have time to check when I did read your file.
