Hello, I am wondering if there is a more streamlined approach to something that I am doing. Essentially, I am running a large number of models (100+ regions) for a project. I have cut down the time consuming aspects where I can, but I am not sure there is a way to do this. One of the activities that I am setting up is an analysis by parts for every one of these regions. I know there is an activity template in excel for industry spending patterns that I can modify, and that would be ideal. However, for what I am doing I would need the LPP values from the original spending pattern in each region as I cannot estimate these myself. Rather than trying to adjust and zero out coefficients in the industry spending pattern within the software, I have moved to exporting to excel, making bulk adjustments there (to the coefficients while leaving the LPP values alone) and importing back into IMPLAN (I am using IMPLAN Pro). However, I still have to open up each region, import the spending pattern, export the spending pattern to excel, and then import back into the software when I am ready to run my analysis. Is there a better more streamlined way to run this?
