I took the introduction to IMPLAN training at the IMPLAN offices, and during that training they hammered it in us to always adjust the event year prior to making any changes during the setup activities phase. I was wondering how that applied in the case of importing industry spending patterns from excel. If I import the industry spending pattern with my adjustments from excel, is it going to cause an issue if I then change the event year after importing it (with the changes to the coefficients that I made)? Also, whenever I import an industry spending pattern from IMPLAN, it automatically sets the event year to the year of the data. Is there an easier way to get it to automatically set to the event year I need? I set my default event year under preferences, but when I import the spending pattern from IMPLAN it still goes back to the default data year. It is a bit time consuming to change each one when I am running it for about 30-40 different geographical locations.
