    Hi Fletcher. Would you mind sharing your model(s) with us? You can zip up the model(s) and email to us at implangroup@implan.com and we will run the Model to see if experience similar issues. Also, please share any additional information that you feel comfortable and that would help us analyze your problem. Thanks!

    Hi Fletcher, We apologize but we still have not seen the Models come in to our implangroup@implan.com box. A couple of things may results in this: [ol] [li]Implangroup@implan.com is the only email address that we have that can accept models. Can you please verify that you sent it to this address?[/li] [li]If you are sending more than one model, which appears is the case, you will need to zip them and send them in individual emails (1 model per email) [/li] [li] You email box may also have a limit for the file size that you can send. [/li] [/ol] We apologize that we haven't received them, and if it would be easier we can do a logmein session to bring the models over to our system by that means. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

    Just sent them as separate emails. The zipped files were 14 megs each. That was probably the problem.

    We apologize Fletcher, for some reason we still aren't receiving these models. We have an alternative email address implangroup@gmail.com that we can try, or we can try to give you a call to see if we can grab the models over logmein. Again we apologize Fletcher, we aren't sure quite why we aren't receiving you models. IMPLAN Support Team

    Hi Fletcher, We received did finally receive your models, we apologize that it was so difficult to get them through to us, and we do clearly see the problem you are running into. We wanted to let you know we are working to try to resolve what may be going on here, but we also wanted to ask a couple of questions. You had mentioned that you had updated the software version, did you update a computer from 3.0 to 3.1 and migrate your current data over, or did you create a new 3.1 installation and re-download your data. Thanks!

    Thank you. Out of the office today nursing a cold. Will have to check on the answer to your question when I'm back in tomorrow. However, my memory is that, if we updated the software, we did it by using the update function. Since the data are resident on the device, it's not clear to me why we would have moved them or why we would have needed to. Which may be an indication that I do not understand your question.

    Hi Fletcher, On all our system here Version 3.0 and 3.1 systems when we build with the Trade Flows Method then we are getting the Multiplier set associated to the 1.53 Multiplier which I believe is the model you created this year. We are currently having our programmer try to dissect the other model, so that we can see if we can determine why it yielded a different set of Multiplier results. We will let you know as soon as we know more.

    Hi Fletcher, It turns out the difference is because someone modified the underlying Employment Compensation per worker in the Customize screen for your model in 2012. The underlying Study Area Data yields the 1.53 Multiplier with the Employment Compensation/Worker rate $28,401 to $55,732. This single shift actually causes not only the change that you saw in the Multiplier that you describe (you will see that the Indirect portion of the Output Multiplier is identical, it is only the Induced component that has changed), between the two years. We were able to duplicate that making this one change to the Study Area Data in the Customizing screen, will actually alter the entire Multiplier matrix in the model to what you have as your 2012 model. If you want to avoid shifting the entire Multiplier matrix in the future or if you want to only make a change for your Directly impacted industry, you can do so by changing the values in the Event. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
