### RBC_Est.mod Errors

Posted:

**Fri Mar 27, 2015 2:03 am**Hi, think this topic had been dealt many times but face a new error message like below

(already set the mean and variance of psi with gamma.pdf as 1.75, 0.1 respectively)

Do we miss something in last estimation command of RBC_Est.mod?

========================

You did not declare endogenous variables after the estimation/calib_smoother command.
