Translating GTAP base data into CSV format
Is it possible to translate the GTAP base data into CSV format for loading into a different application, such as MS Access?
Yes it is possible to do this and there are different ways to get CSV files from HAR files in GTAP Data Base: 1. You could open a header in the HAR file and then do Export..save screen as CSV file. You will have to do this for every other header to complete this task. Sometimes this task may be daunting given that some headers have more than 2 dimensions! 2. You could download some programs from GEMPACK website, mainly the following: http://www.copsmodels.com/gpmark9.htm. Har2csv is the program that will help you convert the HAR files to CSV format.
