ARMAX_PARAM
Returns an array of cells for the quick guess, optimal (calibrated) or std. errors of the values of model's parameters.
Syntax
Y
is the response or the dependent variable time series data array (one dimensional array of cells (e.g. rows or columns)).
X
is the independent variables (exogenous factors) time series data matrix, such that each column represents one variable.
Order
is the time order in the data series (i.e. the first data point's corresponding date (earliest date=1 (default), latest date=0)).
Order  Description 

1  ascending (the first data point corresponds to the earliest date) (default) 
0  descending (the first data point corresponds to the latest date) 
Beta
are the coefficients array of the exogenous factors.
mean
is the ARMA longrun mean (i.e. mu).
sigma
is the standard deviation of the model's residuals.
phi
are the parameters of the AR(p) component model (starting with the lowest lag^{i}).
theta
are the parameters of the MA(q) component model (starting with the lowest lag).
Type
is an integer switch to select the output array: (1=Quick Guess (default), 2= Calibrated , 3=Std. Errors)
Order  Description 

1  Quick guess (nonoptimal) of parameters values (default) 
2  Calibrated (optimal) values for the model's parameters 
3  Standard error of the parameters' values. 
maxIter
is the maximum number of iterations used to calibrate the model. If missing, the default maximum of 100 is assumed.
Remarks
 The underlying model is described here.
 Each column in the explanatory factors input matrix (i.e. X) corresponds to a separate variable.
 Each row in the explanatory factors input matrix (i.e. X) corresponds to an observation.
 Observations (i.e. rows) with missing values in X or Y are assumed missing.
 The number of rows of the explanatory variable (X) must be at equal to the number of rows of the response variable (Y).
 The time series is homogeneous or equally spaced.
 The time series may include missing values (e.g. #N/A) at either end.

ARMAX_PARAM returns an array for the values (or errors) of the model's parameters values in the following order:
 The longrun mean can take any value or be omitted, in which case a zero value is assumed.
 The residuals/innovations standard deviation (sigma) must be greater than zero.
 For the input argument (beta):
 The input argument is optional and can be omitted, in which case no regression component is included (i.e. plain ARMA).
 The order of the parameters defines how the exogenous factor input arguments are passed.
 One or more parameters may have missing values or error codes (i.e. #NUM!, #VALUE!, etc.).
 For the input argument (phi):
 The input argument is optional and can be omitted, in which case no AR component is included.
 The order of the parameters starts with the lowest lag.
 One or more parameters may have missing values or error codes (i.e. #NUM!, #VALUE!, etc.).
 The order of the AR component model is solely determined by the order of the last value in the array with a numeric value (vs. missing or error).
 For the input argument (theta):
 The input argument is optional and can be omitted, in which case no MA component is included.
 The order of the parameters starts with the lowest lag.
 One or more values in the input argument can be missing or an error code (i.e. #NUM!, #VALUE!, etc.).
 The order of the MA component model is solely determined by the order of the last value in the array with a numeric value (vs. missing or error).
 The function was added in version 1.63 SHAMROCK.
