The Solution Manager control screen helps you manage solutions, view or explain solution results, and compare solution values. Indicators can be created and added to solutions. Pivot tables and charts can be created for the rapid comparison of results between solutions.
[Chart Solution Values], [Chart Solution Cross-Section] Draw graphs of solution values.
[Explain Solution Variable Changes] Provides explanation (table, charts) of changes in a selected variable in terms of changes in explanatory variables.
[Load Any File], [Load Solution File] Load any file or solution file in the model directory.
[Manage Solutions, Models] Manage solutions, models, and model configurations: delete unwanted solutions, models and configurations. Add indicators to solutions, and round off solution numbers to save file storage space
[Create Indicator Workbook], [Load/Modify Indicators] Create indicator workbook, load/modify indicators and aggregation formulas using model variables. Indicators (post-solution calculations) can be added to model solutions when you need them.
[Create File (*pvt.xlsx) with Charts, Pivot Tables, Filtered List for Selected Variables and Solutions] Create and save comparative pivot charts and tables of selected variables from selected solutions. These files can be viewed immediately after solutions have been saved.
[Load File (*pvt/xlsx) with Charts, Pivot Tables, Filtered List Comparing Solutions] Loads a pivot table file so you can browse through pivot tables and charts of selected solution values. Pivot tables of solution values are the quickest way to examine model results.
[Create Times Series (TSS) Solution File], [Load TSS File] Convert a solution file (organized by sheet for each time period) to times series format similar to that used in the model data workbook, Load any such saved file.
[UG Solution Manager] Loads explanation of the control screen from the Users Guide. The other (red) buttons at the bottom operate the same ways as they do on the Model Builder screen. They close open files and switch you to other control screens.
[Solution Manager Tools] button brings up a form of program buttons (one button in this case). This button rebuilds the list of solutions, models, and configurations. Other tools may be added in the future as needed.
