Integration of Two Seperate Models
#1
Dear all, I am having a querry regarding integration of two independent AnswerTIMES Model. For instance if I am having two models 'ABC.mbd' and 'EFG.mbd' which are modeled sperately and running fine. Now if I have to create new model XYZ that have two internal regions with all the data of ABC and EFG as two seperate internal regions, how to do that in an easy way as i dont want to remodel the old database again in the new Model. 

Model 1: ABC.mbd having internal region ABC; Model 2: EFG.mbd havign inernal region EFG. Now I want Model 3: XYZ.mbd having two internal region ABC and EFG and also the commodities and processes as same as that of ABC and EFG.

Can that problem be solved using export and import ? or is there any other options to do that.

I haven't had the need to integrate 2 models myself, but I would think that if the two models have the same periods, commodities, etc.; then you could do it by:
1- Run each of the models.
2- Look for the .DD files (in my case they are in the GamsWrkTi folder).
3- Create a New Database in Answer-Times (empty)
4- import the 2 DD files
You can give it a try, if you haven't found a way yet.
Also, once the new database is done, you'll have to create the links between the 2 internal regions in terms of trading, for example.

Another way may be to just go on the web and look for "how to merge .mdb files".
Again, I haven't done it myself.
Good luck!

Thanks SLD and my apology for such a delayed reply.

I am using ANSWER TIMES Export and Import excel feature to do the integration and it does most of the work for me. However the user constraint I have to re-do but it still saves a lot of time as I am able to import/Export process, commodity, process filter, etc.
