    I was able to use the file with no problems. I am gueesing you either have a corrupted file, or it is sitting on a bad sector on your appliance (external drive). I have e-mailed a replacement file to you.

    I tried to build the model with the new file you sent me - putting it in a variety of folders. However, I still come up with the same error message.

    k, I guess I need a little more detail. I assumed the model errored out right after selection of the datafile for building the region study area. What were the steps leading up to the error message?

    The model goes through creating the regional absorption table, then seems to cut off and create the error when assessing trade flows data.

    Aha, when it reaches that point, it is done with the odf file and is dying on the trade flow data file for Warren County. I am e-mailing that file to you. It goes into the appliance:\Implan National Trade Flows\2009\VA directory (which also may be a hidden directory).

    Success! Thanks for your help. One other question. I am using sector 424 for my models. In many of the cities and counties in Virginia, there is no study area data for that sector. Why is that?

    Our "ground truth" is the BLS QCEW data. If NAICs 8132 or 8133 doesn't show up in the BLS data for the county, it won't exist in IMPLAN for that county. Even if it is non-disclosed in the BLS data set, it should at least have a presence in the IMPLAN data. Note, that sector 424 is non-government ownership (all sectors up to sector 426 are for private/non-government ownerships). You can make the sector exist by editing (Cutomize>Study Area) the industry, changing 0's to a value. You can use the US ratios to fill in the data for the industry elements you do not have data.
