Accounting
Accounting User Interface
This document describes the user interface for the Accounting system.
Topics
Enabling Accounting
To enable an accounting model, first accounting has to be enabled from the menu.
• Open the Accounting menu on the tool bar and select Enable Accounting. A check mark is added next to the menu selection. This also enables the remaining options in the Accounting menu.
Second, one of the three accounting controllers has to be selected.
• Open the Run Control dialog and select either Inline Simulation and Accounting, Post-Simulation Accounting, or Inline Rulebased Simulation and Accounting.
Synchronizing Accounting
The accounting system must have the same timestep as the physical model. By default, it should have the same timestep, but there are steps the user could take to create a discontinuity. Perform the following steps to synchronize accounts with the run control.
1. Click Workspace, then Objects, then Synchronize Objects.
2. In the dialog, select the toggle to Include Accounting Objects, and then select Sync. Then confirm by selecting OK in the Confirmation dialog.
Account System Configuration
The accounting system is configured separately from the simulation system. In the Water Accounting System Configuration dialog, the user is able to set values that affect the entire accounting system like time range, water type, and water owner definitions.
• Open the Water Accounting System Configuration dialog by selecting Accounting, then Account System Configuration on the tool bar.
Figure 3.1  Water Accounting System Configuration
The Accounting System Configuration includes the following.
Begin Accrual
A Begin Accrual Date is used by storage accounts. On this date, the accrual in each storage and diversion account is reset to zero. In addition, this date is used by the carryover methods on the account.
Rent Return
A rent return date can be configured for the entire accounting system. Currently, this value is not used anywhere.
Begin Accounting Period
An accounting run, like a simulation run, has a period of dates for which accounts solve. The Begin Accounting Period is where the users sets the time range of the accounting system. The date can be before the initial simulation timestep but cannot be after the initial simulation timestep.
End Accounting Period
The End Accounting Period is where the user sets the timestep where the accounting system ends. The end timestep can be after the last simulation timestep but cannot be before it. In other words, the accounting system must cover the entire simulation time but can extend beyond it in either direction.
As a model evolves, you might change the run times (start, finish, timestep size) with the Run Control dialog (Control, then Run Control Panel). Objects created before the changed run times will differ from objects created after the changed run times. Similarly, accounts created before the run time change will differ from those create after the run-time change with respect to their slots’ time ranges and timestep sizes. RiverWare copies the run time information from the run controller to the accounting system so that it knows if there is a possibility that accounts are not synchronized with the run control information.
Max Iterations
As with the physical system, slots in the accounting system can be set many times in a run. The accounting system configuration dialog box allows you to put a limit on the number of times that any slot can be set; if that limit is exceeded for any slot, the run aborts with an error message. Be careful to set this limit high enough for the solve-into-the-future behavior of some accounts.
Below the Max Iterations are areas of the dialog that can be used to define Water Owners, Water Types, Release Types and Destination Types. Each one can be added by selecting the icon or deleted using the icon.
Allow Equal Priority Dates for Accounts
This toggle controls whether the accounting system will allow accounts to have priority dates that are the same, or if each account’s priority date must be unique. Priority dates are used to allocate water in rules functions.
Water Owners
Each account can have a water owner which is used to classify the account. The Water Owners area allows the user to create the set of water owners available to the accounts.
Water Types
Each account can have a water type associated with it. The Water Types area allows the user to create the set of water types available to accounts.
Release Types
Release Types are used to classify supplies. The Release Types area allows the user to create the set of release types available to supplies. For example, the user can specify that there are Fish and Irrigation Release types. The release type applies to a supply, this is the water coming out of or going into an account. We will not add release types at this time.
Destination Types
Destination Types are also used to classify supplies. The Destination Types area allows the user to create a set of Destination Types available to supplies. Both Destination Types and Release types become very useful when using the rule controller to define how much and from where water is released.
Units
Prior to version 6.3, you configured accounting specific units in the Accounting System Configuration. Now units are specified in the active Unit Scheme; see “Unit Schemes” in User Interface for details. See “Slots” for information specific to accounting units.
Note:  Supply Name Format: Although not specified in this dialog, the supply name format can be configured; this is another system configuration that you may wish to do before building a model. The format for supply names can be controlled by the user in the Supply Name Format dialog. See “Supply Name Format” for additional information. The format specified in this dialog is applied to new supplies and can be applied to existing supplies from the Supply Manager.
The Accounting Network
The RiverWare workspace shows the layout of the physical system of your model. See “General Workspace Features” in User Interface for details on the workspace. In an accounting model, there is secondary workspace called the Accounting View which shows the accounting network in the model. The Accounting View provides a graphical layout of the Accounting network including objects, accounts, links, and supplies.
Note:  If objects with accounts and supplies are exported/imported, the supplies and accounts can also be exported/imported. See “Importing and Exporting Objects” in User Interface for details on the options available to import or export objects with their accounts and supplies.
The following section describes how to access the accounting view, describes features of the Accounting View, workspace options, display properties, and graphical account aggregation.
Accessing the Accounting View
If accounting is enabled, the accounting network is displayed in the Accounting View, and can be selected by the option menu on the toolbar. as shown in Figure 3.2.
Figure 3.2  Accessing the Accounting view
The accounting view provides a representation of the physical objects, as well as, the accounts on those objects. The first time the user switches from the Simulation View to the Accounting View, RiverWare uses the location of the objects to create a default layout in the accounting view. This default layout is similar to the Simulation View but typically, the user must rearrange objects and accounts to get a realistic and usable layout.
• Click on the Workspace view option menu shown in Figure 3.2 and switch to the Accounting View.
Features of the Accounting View of the Workspace
Accounts in the accounting view are displayed in the object territory of its parent simulation object, providing a spatial association of the account with its simulation object. An object territory is a rectangular box with the object icon and name in the upper left corner. Icons representing the accounts on that simulation object are displayed within the territory in a single row. The position of the accounts in the territory are configured through a drag and drop operation; however, RiverWare provides an initial default ordering, as shown in Figure 3.3 and Figure 3.4.
Figure 3.3   
Figure 3.4   
The accounting view can represent the four account types: storage accounts, passthrough accounts, diversion accounts, and instream flow accounts. Storage accounts are represented by rectangular icons, pass through accounts are represented by elliptical icons, diversion accounts are represented by an isosceles trapezoid, and instream flow accounts are represented by a pointed rectangle. The account name is presented within its icon; however, if the account name is too long to fit within its account icon, the name is truncated and marked with an asterisk (*). Supplies are represented by a line between two accounts with the directional supply-demand relationship represented by an arrowhead on the demand-side of the supply. Supplies between accounts on the same object (transfers) are represented by a curved line.
The position of the object territories is configured through a drag drop operation just as icons can be moved in the simulation view. The first time the accounting view is activated for a model, RiverWare will attempt to position the accounts in a meaningful way; however, some manual tuning will be necessary particularly in areas of divergence or convergence. The user can force the network to layout again by right-clicking the workspace, and selecting Layout Network. The positions of the objects in the simulation and accounting views are not coupled and can be move independently.
Accounting View Navigation Techniques
The Accounting View workspace can be used for model building and navigation similar to the main Simulation View workspace. This includes the construction of simulation objects and links, not just accounts and supplies. The user can add objects, create accounts on objects, create links and supplies, etc. Context sensitive menus are activated by the right mouse button. In the object territory, right-clicking gives the user options to create links, open the object, and add accounts among other features. Right-clicking an account gives the user the option to open the account, configure the account and add supplies to the account.
Figure 3.5   
Tool Tips in the Accounting View
Mousing over a component in the accounting view will provide the name of that component as a tooltip. Place the mouse on the component and leave it there until the name appears, after approximately one second.
Information shown includes the name and the following user-defined attributes for accounts and supplies:
• Account attribute: Water Owner
• Account attribute: Water Type
• Supply attribute: Release Type
• Supply attribute: Destination Type
Figure 3.6   
Also the information is shown in the workspace status bar (lower left corner). This can be useful because as long as the mouse is over the item, the name is shown in the status bar. Tool tips only show the name for a few second.The status line includes all relevant attributes, regardless of whether or not those attributes are defined in the model file (edited in the Accounting System Configuration dialog). For attributes without definitions, a value of “NONE” is shown, e.g. (“Destination Type: NONE”).
Display Properties
The appearance of links, objects, accounts, and supplies on the workspace can be manipulated using the Display Group Editor. The dialog is accessed by:
• Selecting Workspace, then Display Group Properties
or
• Right-clicking with the mouse on the workspace. This will bring up a window with the option to select Display Group Properties.
The Display Group Editor provides the ability to create groups of links, groups of objects, and if accounting is enabled, groups of supplies and groups of accounts. The display properties (including color, line width, shading, etc.) and the membership of a group can be changed by double-clicking that group. The membership of the groups need not be mutually exclusive. The groups are prioritized. For example, if two link groups contain the same link, the group highest in the list (lowest priority number) will be used to set the display properties of that link. Display groups can be enabled and disabled by selecting the check mark in the Enabled column.
• Right-click on the workspace and select Display Group Properties. The Account Group Display Configuration dialog opens.
Figure 3.7   
Account Groups
Add a new Account Group through the Group, then Add Account Group. Double-clicking an account group entry will bring up the Account Display Group Configuration dialog.
The membership of the group and the fill style, fill color, account width, account aggregation, and border color of the group members can be set with this dialog. The membership of Accounts within the group is controlled by selecting the Select Account(s) button. The selection uses the standard Object/Slot/Account/ selector dialog and wild cards and filters can be used to select the appropriate accounts. An account can also be added to an Account Display Group by right-clicking the account on the workspace, mousing over Add to Account Group, and selecting the desired Account Display Group. If the account is already a member of an Account Display Group, this option will be replaced with Account Group Membership. Mousing over this option will show the display group to which the account belongs.
Supply Groups
Similar to the Account groups, Supply groups are used to control the appearance of supplies or accounting links.
Properties
The display properties of the accounts and supplies are configured through the display group editor. The display group editor allows users to define groups of objects and the display properties on those groups. The groups are prioritized, allowing an item to span multiple groups. The properties of the highest priority group containing an item will be used to draw the item. Configurable account display properties include the following:
• Border color. Color used to draw the outline of the account’s geometric representation.
• Fill Color. Color used to fill the area within the account’s geometric representation.
• Fill Style. Pattern used to fill the area with the account’s geometric representation (e.g., solid vs. a crosshatch pattern).
• Width. Width of the account’s geometric representation. The geometric representation will stretch to accommodate the account’s name up to this limit, at which point, the account name will be truncated. Hovering the mouse over the account will provide the full name.
• Visibility. Controls whether or not the account will be shown in the network.
• Aggregation. Built-in ability to aggregate the visual representation of one or more accounts.
Configurable supply display properties include:
• Line Color. Color used to draw the supply.
• Line Style. Style used to draw the supply (e.g., solid line vs. dashed line).
• Line Width. Width of the line.
• Visibility. Controls whether the supply will be shown in the network.
The user can also select to show the simulation links (e.g. Reservoir.Outflow to Reach.Inflow) on the Accounting View. This option is selected from the Display Group Editor dialog Preferences, then Show Links in Accounting View. Using link groups in the Display Group Editor, the links can be colored and the width can be changed to distinguish them from the accounting supplies. Showing the simulation links helps when building an accounting model to show which objects are connected to which other objects. This is useful because accounting supplies can only connect objects which are physically linked in the accounting system.
Graphical Account Aggregation
The account aggregation capability of the account display group provides functionality to group similar accounts to avoid clutter on the workspace. When accounts are aggregated, all the accounts in the aggregation will be represented by a single icon that looks like a stack of two accounts icons. This representation is labeled with the name of the display group that aggregated the accounts. A tooltip (i.e. mouse over) provides the names of all the accounts in the aggregation.
Configuring Accounts Through the Open Account Dialog
The Water Accounting System Configuration dialog is used to configure all new or existing accounts at one time. To configure an account individually, instead use the Open Account dialog. The Open Account dialog can be used to both configure an individual account and view the data associated with that Account.
To access the Open Account dialog, use one of the following methods:
• From the object dialog, switch to the Accounts tab. Select the account and then select Account, then Open Account from the menu bar or right-click the account and select Open Account from the context menu.
• From the Edit Account dialog, select View, then Open Account.
• From the Accounting View of the workspace, right-click the account and select Open Account from the context menu
The Open Account dialog has the following tabs: Slots, Methods, Supplies, and General.
Slots
The Slots tab shows all of the slots on the account. Double-click on a slot to bring up a view of that slots data. If the slot is a multi-slot, both the total and the components will be shown. This is another location where accounting data can be entered or edited. In the Slots tab, there is also a date time spinner to scroll to a specific date and a plot button to plot the selected slot(s).
From the Slots tab, you can double-click any slot to see the values in a standard slot dialog. From the slot dialog, you can view variables listed in Table 3.1. You can make changes to units, scale, precision and format which actually result in a Slot Exception in the Unit Scheme; see “Unit Schemes” in User Interface for details.
Note:  The Open Slot configuration dialog is the only location to set the accounting slot’s Convergence.
 
Table 3.1   
Editable Variable
Description
Units
The unit displayed in the user interface
Scale
A multiplier of the unit (e.g., 1 cms or 10 cms), so its effect is to be a divisor of the value displayed.
Precision
The number of digits after the decimal point that are displayed
Format
A choice amongst float and scientific.
Float means floating point, displayed with the precision number of digits after the decimal point, e.g., 55.99, if precision is 2.
Scientific means in standard scientific notation, e.g., 5.599e+01.
Convergence
Determines when an assignment to a slot is considered to have changed the value in the slot. When a slot value V is given a new value V’ and | V - V’ | < V * convergence, V and V’ are considered to be equal and the assignment is not made. This is necessary to allow the solution of the model to converge. When the value V is 0, the convergence criterion is: | V’ | < 1.1 x 10-12. Keep in mind that convergence check (as all computation) is done in internal RiverWare units, not in the user (display) units.
Methods
The Methods tab is used to select methods associated with a given account. For example, there are categories that have to deal with the calculation of Initial Request for water rights appropriation, Storage Account Carryover, and whether this account has a water right. Methods in the Storage Account Carryover category determine the storage carryover on the Begin Accrual Date.
Highlight the desired category row, then use the Selected Method pull down menu to choose an alternative method.
Note:  You can select methods on many accounts in one action using the multi-account method selector which is accessed from the Accounts Manager. See “Multiple Account Method Selector” for additional information.
Supplies
The Supplies tab is used to configure supplies into the account. Supplies are the mechanism to link two accounts on the same or linked objects. All supply configurations are done on the downstream account. Supplies are explained further later.
Figure 3.8   
Double-clicking an existing supply will open the Edit Supply dialog for that supply. This dialog, shown in the Figure 3.9, can be used to change an individual supply’s name, release type or destination.
Figure 3.9   
The demands area is used to view the supplies leaving the account. The demands are read-only; nothing can be changed. To edit a demand, the user must open the downstream object and edit the supplies entering the downstream object.
General
The General tab is used to configure general properties of the account. The user can select the Water Type and Water Owner, although the types must already be defined in the Account System Configuration. The user can also specify a Priority Date for the account, where applicable. The Has Priority Date toggle box must be selected to enter a priority date. The equal/unequal icon indicates if the date shown is unique or not with respect to the priority dates of other accounts. Selecting this icon will open the Account Manager Dialog to show accounts with the equal priority date (see “Water Accounts Manager” for details). If equal priority dates are allowed in the Account System Configuration, a copy icon is also shown that when pressed will open an account selector to choose an account from which to copy a priority date. An assigned Priority Date is used by rule functions to allocate water.
Viewing Account Data Through the Edit Account Dialog
Let us explore the Edit Account dialog. The edit account dialog is used by all account types and look similar although there are different slots for each type of account. The Edit Account dialog is the main window used to view an account’s data, as shown in Figure 3.10.
Figure 3.10  Annotated Screenshot of the Edit Account Dialog
On the top of the dialog, the account name is given in the form Object^Account. There is an icon for the object type on which this account resides. In this case, it is a Storage Reservoir. In addition, there is an icon that shows the type of this account, i.e. a storage account. On the left side of the dialog are the timesteps for the accounting system. Each column in the table represents a slot that may contain data.
The slots displayed in this dialog depends on the type of account, i.e. storage, passthrough or diversion. Additionally, the Show menu allows you to specify whether to show All Slots, Only Slots with values (non NaNs) or Only slots with non-zero values.
Note:  When first constructing a model, it may be necessary to show all slots to allow the user to input initial storages and accruals. Once constructed, it is frequently desirable to not show empty slots as there are a number of slots on the accounts that likely will not be used in every model.
• Specify to Show all Slots. Notice that in addition to Outflow, Gain Loss, Slot Inflow, Storage and Accrual, there are now empty columns for Inflow, Diversion, Return Flow, Maximum Accrual, Transfer In, Transfer Out, Begin Year Allocation, and Carry Over.
Above the timesteps, there is an Alt Units toggle button that switches between Flow units and Volume units
Figure 3.11  Edit Account dialog with Alt Units menu button shown
 
As shown in Figure 3.11, the button opens a menu that switches the display between
– Standard - Display flows and volumes without conversion
– Flow - Display flow slots as flows and display volumes as flows (as appropriate) - This is the default.
– Volume - Display flow slots as Volumes and display volume slots as volumes.
Select Flow to see the flow values as a volume. Notice that the values have changed and the columns now say acre-feet instead of cfs. The value shown is the volume over the timestep. Slots on accounts use the active Unit Scheme for display and input; see “Unit Schemes” in User Interface for details. As with the physical system, the accounting system maintains its values in internal units, regardless of the units chosen for display.
Note:  Slots shown in their alternate unit type display an asterisk next to the unit. For example, Gain Loss, when shown as a flow, displays Gain Loss cfs*.
Tip:  All flow slots can be shown as the volume over the timestep, but the reverse is not true. Only a handful of volume slots, like Gain Loss, can be shown as a flow. Storage and Accrual do not respond to the toggle; they always are shown as volumes.
Accounting dialogs use colors to represent the process used to set the accounting values. A key is provided that shows the meaning of each color.
• From the menu bar, select View, then Show Account Color Legend to bring up a window showing the Grid Cell Legend. The second column of colors is the color when the cell is selected.
Figure 3.12  Accounting color legend
In addition, there is a letter flag on each value that corresponds to each color. Use the key to determine the meaning of each letter. In addition, slots that are Read-Only are shown with a cross-hatch.
Note:  In addition, the Empty Storage Flag denoted with the letter “E” and the orange background can be used on outflow supplies from Storage accounts to compute the flow that leads to zero storage. See “Empty Storage Flag” for details.
In a Rulebased Simulation run, the Edit Account dialog also can show the priority of the slot at the given timestep. This can enable/disabled using the View, then Show Priorities menu
The edit account dialogs show tooltips indicating which rule or DMI was responsible for the specified value, where applicable. See “Tooltips” in User Interface for additional information.
Back on the Edit Account dialog, a scroll button and DateTime spinner allows the user to jump to a specified date. Either type in a valid date in the date box and select the Scroll button to move to that date. Or, use the up and down arrows to advance to the desired timestep.
When the user selects a range of cells in the Edit Account dialog, the dialog displays information about the name and summary information of that selection in the bottom of the window. If the selection is just in one slot, it displays the name of the slot or that the slots consists of one or more supplies. If the selection spans multiple slots, then the name displays how many slots are selected. In addition, summary data at the bottom of the dialog shows the sum, average, minimum, maximum, and range of the selection.
At the bottom of the dialog, the summary information says that the average is 6435.96 acre-ft, as shown in Figure 3.13. It also displays that the NymphLake^Upper.Storage account is selected.
Figure 3.13   
Outflow, Inflow, Transfers, Diversion, and Return Flow slots on the Edit Account dialog can actually consist of more than one value if the user has configured to have multiple supplies coming into or out of that slot. We will discuss this in detail later. For now, let us just be aware that a column can represent more than one time series of data. If a column in the Edit Account dialog does in fact have multiple components, the column in the Edit Account dialog will be cross hatched meaning it is read-only. Double-clicking the column opens a new windows showing the multi-slot which consists of the total sum and the component supplies.
A new window opens showing the multislot, as shown in Figure 3.14. On the left is the Edit Account dialog. On the right is the multi-slot that results when the user double-clicks on the Outflow slot.
Note:  The numbers in the first column of both dialogs are the same and the second dialog shows the components of the total.
Figure 3.14   
There is also the ability to hide or compress repeated values, a specified value, or NaNs. See “Series Display Compression” in User Interface for additional information about Series Display Compression.
Note:  When using the Edit Account dialog, the user can export a selection of cells using the Export Copy functionality. This allows the user to export data to the clipboard and then paste it into other applications like Excel.
Creating Accounts
There are several ways to create individual accounts, as follows:
• For non-aggregate objects, right-click on the object in the Accounting View workspace, then choose Add Account and then the desired account type.
• Within the object dialog, switch to the Account tab then select the menu Account, then New Storage/PassThrough/Diversion/InstreamFlow Account. If you are on an aggregate object, you will need to highlight one of the elements to which the Account will belong.
• Within the object dialog, switch to the Account tab then right-click to see a context sensitive menu from which to choose to create a New Storage/PassThrough/Diversion/InstreamFlow Account. If you are on an aggregate object, you will need to highlight one of the elements to which the Account will belong.
Note:  You can rename accounts en masse from the Accounts Manager; see “Additional Operations in the Dialog” for details.
Creating Supplies
There are two ways to create a supply from a downstream account to an upstream, account, as follows:
• From the Open Account dialog (Account Configuration), switch to the Supplies tab. Select the icon to bring up the Create new Supply to Account dialog. Select the source, edit the Supply name if desired, change any attributes and select OK.
• Right-click on the Account in the Accounting View workspace, then choose Add Supply and then the desired supply type. An arrow appears for the user to select the source. Figure 3.15 illustrates these steps. Right-click on the source account and create the supply. The default supply name and properties are used. If you desire to change these, you must use either the Edit Supply (from the Supplies tab in the Open Account dialog) or the Supplies Manager to change names or properties. If the source account is more than one link upstream, the Create Linked PassThrough Accounts dialog will appear to create linked Passthrough accounts.
Figure 3.15   
Note:  Before creating supplies, you may wish to modify the default Supply Name Format. See “Supply Name Format” for additional information.
Automated Passthrough Account Creation
The Automated Passthrough Account Creation function allows the user to identify two existing Accounts on different Simulation Objects and create linked Passthrough Accounts on all intervening Objects in a single operation. This is a convenient alternative to showing the Object Viewer (or Open Object) dialog box for each of the intervening Objects to create a Passthrough Account. All newly created Accounts and Supplies are assigned properties selected by the user:
• Account Name
• Account Water Type
• Account Water Owner
• Supply Release Type
• Supply Destination (Type)
There are several ways to create linked Passthrough accounts:
• Right-click the downstream account and choose Add Supply, then Inflow/Outflow. Move the cursor up to the upstream account and right-click again. The Create Linked PassThrough Accounts dialog appears to complete the process. The Upstream and Downstream accounts are automatically filled in.
• Open the object and go to the Accounts tab. Right-click in the accounts area (or select Create Linked PassThrough Accounts from the Accounts menu) and choose Create Linked PassThrough Accounts. A dialog appears to complete the process. On an aggregate object, you must first select an element.
• Open the object and go to the Accounts tab. Select Create Linked PassThrough Accounts from the Accounts menu. A dialog appears to complete the process.
• From the Accounts Manager, select Account, then Create, then Passthrough Accounts to open the Create Linked PassThrough Accounts dialog.
Quick Usage Overview
1. Open the Create PassThrough Accounts dialog box from one of the methods specified above or:
2. Select the correct Upstream Account.
– Select an Object Type (or All Object Types)
– Select an Object of that Type
– Select an Account on that Object
3. Select the desired Downstream Account.
– Select an Object Type (or All Object Types)
– Select an Object of that Type
– Select an Account on that Object
4. Enter the desired Account Name for newly created Accounts.
5. Enter the desired Water Type for newly created Accounts.
6. Select the desired Water Owner for newly created Accounts.
7. Select the desired Release Type for newly created Supplies.
8. Select the desired Destination (Type) for newly created Supplies.
9. Select either the OK or Apply button.
Detailed Usage Information
The following sections show detailed information on using the dialog.
Invoking the Dialog
This dialog box can be shown using either of these two menu operations:
• From the Water Accounts Manager dialog box:
Select Account, then Create, then PassThrough Accounts.
• From an object dialog:
Select Account, then Create, then PassThrough Accounts.
Overview of the Dialog
The Create PassThrough Accounts dialog box includes the following user controls.
• Two Account Selector Boxes:
– An Upstream Account (Selections: Object Type, Object, Account)
– A Downstream Account (Selections: Object Type, Object, Account)
• New Account Properties controls for specifying properties given to the Accounts created with by operation.
– An Account Name (Text Entry Field)
– A Water Type (Option Menu selection)
– A Water Owner (Option Menu selection)
• Optional button for assigning the Account Properties (Name, Water Type and Water Owner) of the currently selected Upstream or Downstream Account to the New Account property controls described in the previous item.
• New Supplies Properties controls for specifying properties given to the Supplies created by this operation.
• A multi-line text field for display of the following:
– Reason the entered and selected values do not specify a valid creation operation, or
– List of the Accounts which will be created and linked (via new Supplies) if the user presses the OK or Apply buttons.
• Buttons: OK, Apply, and Close.
Account Selector Boxes
The Create PassThrough Account dialog box has two Account Selection boxes used to indicate an Upstream Account and a Downstream Account. Each has the following option menus:
• Obj (Object) Type option menu. The user selects either All Object Types or one of the Object Types for Objects which can have Accounts and which are represented in the model.
• Object option menu. The user selects one of the Simulation Objects in the model of Object Type indicated in the Obj Type option menu.
• Account option menu. The user selects one of the Accounts in the Simulation Object indicated in the Object option menu.
New PassThrough Account Property Specification
All the PassThrough Accounts created by a Create PassThrough Accounts operation are given the same Name, Water Type and Water Owner. All Accounts can have the same name because only one such Account will be created on any particular Object.
These properties can be those of the selected Upstream Account, or those of the selected Downstream Account, or any arbitrary valid name and property selection.
The name appearing in the text entry field, which can be freely edited by the user, is the name to be used for all new created Accounts. Selecting the Use Upstream or Downstream buttons assigns the Name, Water Type, and Water Owner of the currently selected Upstream or Downstream Account to those three entry / selection widgets. The user can then make modifications to any of those values.
Valid values for Water Type and Water Owner are defined by the user in the Accounting System Configuration.
New Supply Property Specification
Newly creates Supplies (links between Accounts) will be given the default name (based on the names of the two linked Accounts) and the following properties.
• Release Type
• Destination (Type)
Valid values for these two properties are defined by the user in the Accounting System Configuration.
Enabledness of the OK and Apply Buttons
The OK and Apply buttons are enabled only if all of the following conditions are met.
• The selected Upstream Account can accept a Demand to a downstream PassThrough Account (or to the Downstream Account, if that is on an adjacent, physically linked Object).
• The selected Downstream Account can accept a Supply from an upstream PassThrough Account (or from the Upstream Account, if that is on an adjacent, physically linked Object).
• A path of physical links exists between the Upstream Object and the Downstream Object which are needed for the creation of Supplies connecting the indicated Accounts via new PassThrough Accounts. To determine this state, the mechanism searches for a downstream linked path from the Upstream Object to the Downstream Object.
• The intervening Objects do not yet contain an Account with the name to be used for the new PassThrough Accounts.
• The intervening Objects are of Object Types on which PassThrough Accounts can be created.
Note:  This restriction does not apply to the Upstream or Downstream Objects. That is, the selected Accounts don’t have to be PassThrough Accounts.
Selection Status Area
In addition to the enabled state of the OK and Apply buttons, a brief message about the validity of the Create PassThrough Account operation, given the current input selections, is displayed in the Selection Status Area.
Status Area text messages include:
• “No Upstream Account specified.”
• “No Downstream Account specified.”
• “Upstream and Downstream Accounts must be distinct.”
• “Upstream and Downstream Objects must be distinct.”
• “Account ‘<account name>’ already exists”
• “No physical path exists from Upstream Object to Downstream Object.”
If the selections specify a valid Create PassThrough Accounts operation, then the Accounts that would be created and linked (with Supplies) are indicated (see Figure 3.16).
Reporting Account and Supply Creation Results
During the course of the Create PassThrough Accounts operation (as a result of pressing the OK or Apply buttons), any detected problems will be reported as an Error in the Diagnostics Output window.
Note:  This does not apply to the error conditions detected before the OK or Apply button is pushed; those conditions actually prevent those button from being pushed.
The following actions are reported as Informational messages in the Diagnostic Output window, shown in Figure 3.16.
• Creating and Linking PassThrough Accounts from “<upstream account>” to   “<downstream account>”
• Account created: “<account name>”
• Supply created: “<supply name>” [<supply type>]

Water Accounts Manager
The Water Accounts Manager dialog displays some or all of the accounts in the model. It is an alternative way to access accounts in the model for purposes of viewing and configuring.
Tour of the Water Accounts Manager
The Water Accounts Manager is accessed from the Accounting, then Accounts Manager menu on the main RiverWare workspace. There is only one Water Accounts Manager for a given model. Figure 3.17 shows the key areas of the dialog.
Figure 3.17   
The Water Accounts Manager displays one account per row. Sortable columns display the Object, Account Name, Water Type, Account Type, Water Owner, and Priority Date, if applicable. Following are descriptions of the buttons, toggles, and features of the utility.
Account Type Filter
Each Account type (Storage, Diversion, Passthrough, and InstreamFlow) has a toggle button. If the toggle is selected, then accounts of that type are shown in the Accounts Area.
Set Water Type
This button is used to set the Water Type of many accounts at one time. Highlight the desired accounts, select a new Water Type from the menu, and select Set Water Type to make the change.
Set Water Owner
This button is used to set the Water Owner of many accounts at one time. Highlight the desired accounts, select a new Water Owner from the pull down menu, and select Set Water Owner to make the change.
Set Priority Date
This button is used to set the priority date of an account. If each account must have a unique priority date, the user can only change one priority date at a time. To do this, select the desired account, change the priority date by either typing a new date in the box or selecting the up or down arrow, and select Set Priority Date to apply. If the accounting system configuration allows equal priority dates among accounts (see “Account System Configuration” for details), multiple accounts can be selected and changed at the same time. Accounts with the same priority date will be distinguished by a background color shading of the priority date in the accounts list.There is also a Clear button to remove priority dates from one or more accounts.
Select Account Methods. Access the Multiple Account Method Selector to select methods on many accounts in one action using the Account, then Account Method Selector. See “Multiple Account Method Selector” for a description.
Additional Operations in the Dialog
The Water Accounts Manager can also be used to access other dialogs in the accounting system.
Edit Account
Select the desired account(s) and select the Edit Account button to edit one or more accounts. Also, double-click on an account row and the Edit Account dialog opens.
Configure Account
Select the desired account(s) and select Configure Account to configure one or more accounts.
Rename Accounts
Select the desired account(s) and select Account, then Rename to change the name of many accounts at once. If there are any accounts with that name already on the object, a message will be posted and you will not be able to rename.
Open Object
Select the desired account(s) and select Open Object to open the object containing the account.
Delete
Delete the selected account.
Sort
Accounts in the dialog can be sorted in two methods: Select the column heading to sort according to that attribute. Select it again to reverse the order. Also, the View menu can be used to sort accounts in various ways.
Open additional dialogs
The Account and System menus can be used to access other dialogs in the accounting system including the Object Account Summary, Account System Configuration, Exchange Manager, Supply Manager, and Object Level User Defined Accounting Method set editor.
Copy List to Clipboard
The menu operation File, then Copy List to Clipboard copies a tabular string representation of the currently displayed Account list to the System Clipboard. Fields are delimited with Tab characters, lines are delimited with New Line characters, suitable for importing into a spreadsheet, such as Microsoft Excel.
Multiple Account Method Selector
The Multiple Account Method Selector allows you to select account level methods for many accounts in one action. The dialog is similar to the Multi-Object Method Selector; see “Multiple Object Method Selector” in User Interface for details.
Figure 3.18   
Quick Usage Overview
1. Open the Water Accounts Manager and optionally select the desired accounts.
2. From the Water Accounts Manager use the Account, then Account Method Selector menu.
3. The dialog initially shows the accounts that were selected in the Accounts Manager. Add accounts by selecting the Add Accounts button, then select accounts in the selector and select Ok.
4. Optionally, filter the accounts by type.
5. Highlight the desired accounts to which a new method should apply.
6. Select a category from the Method Category list.
7. Select a new method from the Method list.
8. Verify that the selected method is available on all desired accounts by inspecting the Available column in the accounts list.
9. Apply the new method to the highlighted accounts by selecting the Apply New Method button.
10. Verify that the accounts listed in the confirmation dialog are the accounts you intend to change, and select OK.
11. The accounts will now have the selected methods.
Supplies Manager
The Supplies Manager dialog box displays supplies within the model. The main part of the Supplies Manager dialog box presents one Supply per row.
The Supplies Manager is accessed from the Accounting, then Supplies Manager menu on the main RiverWare workspace. There is only one Supplies Manager for a given model. Figure 3.19 shows the dialog with key areas highlighted.
Figure 3.19   
Supplies Manager Columns
The Supplies Manager List presents one Supply per row, with three columns of information about the Supplies. The width of the columns can be adjusted by dragging the line separating the column headings.
The first of the three columns is always the Supply Name (which can be quite long). The content of the other two columns is Configurable by the user through the Data Column1 and Data Column2 menu bar items. Within these two menus is the option to select the data display, as shown in Figure 3.20. The selected variable has a check mark next to it.
Figure 3.20   
Color Annotation of Supply Rows
Supplies that represent internal transfers between two accounts on the same object are shown in Green text. Supplies between Accounts on different Objects which are not directly physically linked (technically, this is an error condition) are shown in Red text. Currently, if the upstream and downstream Objects are linked together on any slots, the Supply is shown to be normal (not Red), even if the slots used for the link(s) don’t make sense. (It is the user’s responsibility to insure that the links make sense).
When a particular Object is selected for filtering (see next section), Supplies that represent Outflows from that object are shown in Blue text. (Supplies which represent Inflows to the Object are shown in Black).
Supply Filtering
The Supplies Manager can show all the Supplies in a model or a filtered subset of Supplies. The user can filter supplies by the type of the destination account. This is done using the Show Supplies to toggle area and selecting one or more of the following types: Storage, passthrough, instream flow, and/or diversion accounts.
Also, the Supply Manager can present only the Supplies related to a particular simulation object. If filtering by an object is specified by checking the Supplies to/from Object, the list of Supplies shown is limited to those which represent inflows (into the object) and/or outflows (from the object) and/or internal flow (between two accounts on the object). The internal flow toggle and the outflows toggle are shown respectively in Green and Blue to correspond to the color annotation of supply rows.
The first time the user toggles on the Supplies to/from Object, an object selector dialog appears. The user can also select Object, then Select from the menu bar to select a different object using the selector.
Note:  Only one object can be selected. When the Supplies to/from Object is off, the object label reads “All Objects” and the inflows/internal flows/outflows toggles are turned on, but the controls are dimmed.
Supply Sorting
The supply rows can be sorted based on any of the column headings. The user can sort the rows by any of the three displayed columns by selecting the column header. Also, the user can sort the supply rows by selecting any of the criteria under the Sort menu item. This can be useful because the user can sort by a variable but it is not necessary to show that variable as one of the data columns. In general, these values are self explanatory, except for Supply Status. The sort by Supply Status operation sorts the Supply Rows in three or four groups, and by supply name within each of those groups:
• Supplies between Accounts on distinct Objects which do not have a direct physical link are shown in Red. See “Color Annotation of Supply Rows” for additional information.
• Supplies between Accounts on the same object are shown in Green.
• Other supplies between accounts on distinct objects (having a direct physical link) are shown in Black or Blue. Only if a particular object is selected for filtering, the remaining supplies are separated into two groups:
– Supplies which represent inflows into the object (shown in Black).
– Supplies which represent outflows from the object (shown in Blue).
Operations on Selected Supplies
Double-clicking a row in the Supply Manager will open the Edit Supply dialog for that Supply. This dialog, shown in Figure 3.21, can be used to change an individual supply’s name, release type or destination.
Figure 3.21   
Selecting a row in the supplies area causes it to be selected. Multiple-row selection are also supported for operations that can apply to more than one supply, e.g. deletion or setting the Release Type or Destination.
Set Release Type
This button is used to set the Release Type of one or more supplies. Highlight the desired supply(ies), select a Release Type from the pull down menu, and select Set Release Type to make the change.
Set Destination
This button is used to set the Destination of one or more supplies. Highlight the desired supplies, select a Destination from the pull down menu, and select Set Destination to make the change.
Several operations are also available as buttons in a row along the bottom of the dialog box. Currently these are the Configure Destination, Configure Source, Edit Destination, Edit Source and Close (dialog box) operations. The operations on Supplies are accessed from the Supply menu. They are defined as follows:
• Select All Supplies. Select all supplies listed in the dialog.
• Plot Supply Slot. Creates a plot of the selected supplies.
• Configure Destination Account. Open up the Open Account dialog for the supply’s destination (downstream) account, for each of the selected supplies.
• Configure Source Account. Opens the Open Account dialog for the supply’s source (upstream) account for each of the selected supplies.
• Edit Destination Account. Opens the account editor for the supply’s destination (downstream) account for each of the selected supplies.
• Edit Source Account. Opens the account editor for the supply’s source (upstream) account for each of the selected supplies.
• Supply Name Format. Configured the format to use for supply names. See “Supply Name Format” for additional information.
• Rename Supplies using Supply Name Format. Rename the selected existing supplies using the currently defined Supply Name Format. Use the menu Edit Supply Name Format to configure the format. Then choose this menu to apply that format. A confirmation dialog box is shown when the user selects the Rename Supplies using Supply Name Format operation.
• Delete Supply. Deletes the selected supplies; the user is given a dialog box to confirm the action.
Operations on Objects
From the Object menu, operations are available on the destination object of the selected supply. The user can bring up either the Object Viewer (or Open Object) dialog box (in the Accounts tab) or the Object Account Summary dialog box (showing the sums of series slots across a set of Accounts on a single object) for the selected object. In addition, accounting system dialogs can be accessed using the System menu including: Account System Configuration, Exchange Manager, Accounts Manager, and Object Level User Defined Accounting Method set editor.
Copy List to Clipboard
The menu operation File, then Copy List to Clipboard copies a tabular string representation of the currently displayed Supply list to the System Clipboard. Fields are delimited with Tab characters, Lines are delimited with New Line characters -- suitable for importing into a spreadsheet, such as Microsoft Excel.
Supply Name Format
A RiverWare model maintains a single instance of a Supply Name Format specification. This is editable in the Supply Name Format dialog, accessible from the Supply Manager’s Supply menu.
Changes made in the Supply Name Format are applied immediately, but can be canceled (reverted to the settings which were active when the dialog was shown) by selecting the Cancel Changes button.
The user can also restore RiverWare Default settings by selecting the Restore Default button. See “Default Supply Name Format” for a description of the default format.
Those two buttons are independently disabled if the edited settings already match these operations’ respective settings. The user can effectively toggle between the default settings and the current settings (those which were active when the dialog is shown) by alternating between the Restore Defaults and Cancel Changes buttons, assuming that those settings are different.
The Close button dismisses the Supply Name Format dialog.
Supply Name Part Sequence
In the new Supply Name Format dialog, the user defines a sequence of Supply Name Parts made up of the following entities:
• Upstream Object Name
• Upstream Account Name
• Upstream Account Water Type
• Upstream Account Water Owner
• Downstream Object Name
• Downstream Account Name
• Downstream Account Water Type
• Downstream Account Water Owner
• Supply Type Text (configurable in frame below)
• Any entered text having valid supply name characters (e.g. “to”)
The user can insert, append and remove Supply Name Parts (rows) using the Plus and Minus icon buttons. Up to 12 parts can be defined.
The user can provide Supply Type Text strings for each of the three types of supplies:
• Inflow/Outflow
• Diversion/Return (default is “Div”)
• Transfer (default is “Tran”)
Allowed characters in the Entered Text and Supply Type Text fields are letters (upper and lower case), digits, spaces and underscore characters. Also, a non-removable space tag (“<sp>”) can be entered to specify spaces which are not to be removed by the space removal and CamelCasing features (with some exceptions). (Other ‘<“ and ”>’ characters are silently removed from the final computed name).
Supply Name Generation Options
Option: Part Assembly, Space Removal and Camel Casing
The sequence of Supply Name Parts is assembled into a single string, with the parts initially separated by spaces. Multiple contiguous spaces are condensed into single spaces, and spaces are removed from the beginning and end.
The user can optionally specify that spaces be removed, either only within the individual parts or also in between the separate parts.
If CamelCasing is enabled, wherever a space is removed, if the subsequent character is a lower-case letter, that letter is changed to upper-case.
The translation of non-removable space tags (“<sp>”) occurs after the application of optional space removal and camel casing. However, all contiguous spaces (including “<sp>” tags) are condensed into a single space, and spaces are removed from the beginning and end of the generated name.
In the five examples below, the non-removable spaces around the “to” text part are preserved. Also, the space tag preceding “to” prevents that word from being camel cased. Otherwise, “to” would have been changed to “To” in the cases where camel casing is enabled. In the examples below, the effect of camel casing is illustrated with the treatment of “abv” (an abbreviation for “above”).
Option: Omit Repeated Object Name (e.g. in Transfer Supplies)
In RiverWare, transfer supplies represent the movement of water from one account on a simulation object to another account on the same object. The Upstream Object and the Downstream Object are the same. The default supply naming convention results in that object being included twice.
The user has the option of omitting repeated object names in generated supply names by selecting the Omit repeated Object Name toggle.
Option: Supply Name Uniqueness Suffix
All supply names in a RiverWare model must be unique and different than other simulation objects. It’s possible that a Supply Name Format will not generate unique names of supplies. Only in such cases, a numeric suffix is appended to the generated supply name.
Figure 3.22   
The numeric uniqueness suffix generated for supplies, as needed, can be configured by the user in the following ways:
• The suffix can optionally start with a space or underscore Delimiter.
• The number field can have a fixed number of digits, padded with leading zeros. This is provided as a minimum number of digits; more digits will be used for any particular supply if the indicated digit count isn’t sufficient.
The dialog dynamically illustrates the effect of these two settings in the Example field (see Figure 3.22). The effect is also illustrated within the Sample Supply box Format Result field, when needed for the application of the format to the chosen sample supply (see “Supply Sample Box”). Generated supply names are made unique not only with respect to all existing supplies, but also with respect to all other top-level objects, including simulation objects (reservoirs, reaches, etc) and exchanges.
Supply Sample Box
This Supply Name Format dialog shows the result of the application of the current format to a single sample supply. The sample supply can be an actual existing supply or one of three simulated (fake) supplies -- one for each of the three Supply Types. The Sample Supply box shows three versions of the Supply name:
• Format Result. Name of the sample supply as computed using the current format.
• Default Name. Name of the sample supply, as computed using the default.
• Current Name. Current name of the sample supply (shown only when an actual existing supply is used as the sample).
Note:  This dialog does not currently support renaming the sample supply using the configured format. Supply renaming can be done in the Supply Manager; see “Operations on Selected Supplies” for details.
The Format Result field will show a uniqueness suffix if that is required for the particular sample supply. (In the case of the simulated samples, a uniqueness suffix is shown if the Supply Name Part list is empty or all blank).
When a uniqueness suffix is applied to the generated name, a red “S” character is shown to the right of the field.
Default Supply Name Format
The default Supply Name Format contains the following Supply Name Parts and does not perform space removal:
<Upstream Object> <Upstream Account> “ to ” <Downstream Object> <Downstream Account> <Type>
where <Type> is one of the following:
– Inflow/Outflow Supplies: (blank)
– Diversion/Return Supplies: “Div”
– Transfer Supplies: “Tran”
Supply Name Format Clipboard
A single instance of a Supply Name Format can be saved in a special clipboard. The clipboard format persists between RiverWare sessions, and can be used to copy a Supply Name Format from one RiverWare model to another.
The clipboard functions are under the File menu, as follows:
• Paste from Supply Name Format Clipboard
• Copy to Supply Name Format Clipboard
The Copy operation is confirmed with the Overwrite Suppl Name Format Clipboard dialog.
Showing Supply Format Differences
The Supply Manager has the ability to show the names computed for each of the existing supplies using the model’s current Supply Name Format, optionally with an indication that the computed name is different than the supply’s current name -- see example below. To do this select the Supply Name Format Difference in either Data Column 1 or Data Column 2 menus. The string “DIFF” indicates the supply is different than the Supply Name Format. The string “same” indicates they are identical.
Object Account Summary
The Object Account Summary displays summary information for the accounts on a given object. This information is useful to see summary information about all or some of the selected accounts on a given object (or possibly objects in the future). For example, the user could select to see the total accounting storage for a given water type. Or, the user could see the total volume of water released downstream from all accounts on an object and compare it to the Object’s simulation Outflow to ensure that the two systems are reconciled.
Accessing the Object Account Summary Dialog
To open the Object Account Summary dialog, use one of the following options:
• From the Object Viewer (or Open Object) dialog, use the Account, then Accounts Summary menu option.
• From the Accounting View of the workspace, right-click on a simulation object and select Accounts Summary from the context menu.
• From Water Accounts Manager, select Accounts, then Object Summary.
• From the Supplies Manager, select Object, then Summary.
Tour of the Dialog
Figure 3.23 highlights the main parts of the Object Account Summary dialog.
Figure 3.23  Annotated screenshot of the Object Account Summary \
The dialog is used to filter the information to show. In general, the top part of the dialog contains toggles and options which the user can select to control the information shown. The bottom half of the dialog shows the summary slots and the components of that sum. In addition, Statistical information is shown at the bottom of the dialog and presents summary information about the highlighted selection. Following are descriptions and additional information on each part of the dialog.
Select Single or Multiple Object
The user can select to show either a single object or multiple objects.
Note:  Currently only a single object has been implemented.
Select Objects
The user can select the object using either a pull-down menu or through the slot selector dialog by selecting the Select Object button.
Account Types
Accounts can be filtered by type, i.e. Storage, PassThrough, Diversion, or Instream Flow, using the check boxes. The check boxes are enabled based on the types of accounts that reside on the object.
Account Slot Entity
The slot entity (Outflow, Inflow, Storage, etc.) shown in the summary area is selected using the menu. The most common slot types can be selected using buttons including Inflow, Outflow, Storage, Accrual, Diversion and Return Flow.
Columns
The user can show timesteps as either the column or the rows. If Acct Slots is selected, the accounts are shown across the columns and timesteps go down the rows. If Timesteps is selected, the timesteps are displayed across the columns and the accounts displayed down the rows in the table. This layout is described in more detail below.
Accounts
The accounts can be ordered and selected for display in the summary area. If the List All Accounts toggle is selected, then all accounts will be shown. Otherwise, only the selected accounts are shown. Each column can be sorted by selecting the column heading. To select multiple accounts, highlight the row and select Set Selection. All accounts can be selected using the Select All Accounts button. The accounts can be re-ordered by two methods:
• Select the column heading to sort the accounts by that column
• Select an account and select the up or down arrow to move the accounts.
Once the order is defined as desired in the Account Selection area, select the Set Order button to apply the changes. This reorders the slots in the summary area. Select the button to show/hide the Accounts area.
Statistics Information
The following summary statistics are displayed for the highlighted selection: Sum, Average, Minimum, Maximum, and Range.If the slot entity shown is a Flow slot, then the summary area also shows the sum of the selected cells converted to a volume.
Slot Filters
The Show menu allows you to specify whether to show All Slots, Only Slots with values (non NaNs) or Only slots with non-zero values.
Summary Area
The summary area shows each of the selected slots or timesteps and the total sum for the selections. If appropriate, values in the summary area can be switched from Flow to Volume using the Alt Unit button options as shown and described in “Viewing Account Data Through the Edit Account Dialog”.
 
Type in a date in the date box to and select Scroll to move to that timestep. Use the plot button to plot the selected slot. If one or more slots are selected, the plot button will plot the selected slot for the entire time period. Select the button to hide the Timestep area and the button to show the area if it is hidden. The summary area is laid out differently depending on whether the Slots or the Timesteps are selected to be used as columns. The two options are described below:
 
Slots For Columns
If the user has selected to show the Slots as Columns, then the dialog looks as in Figure 3.24.
Figure 3.24   
There is also the ability to hide or compress repeated values, a specified value, or NaNs. See “Series Display Compression” in User Interface for details about Series Display Compression.
Timesteps for Columns
As described above, the user can select to either show slots or timesteps as columns in the summary area. If the user selects the button to show timesteps as the Columns, the layout changes to add an area where the user can select the timesteps to show. At first, the area is empty, as in Figure 3.25.
Figure 3.25   
The user must select the Initialize button to activate the timesteps. This populates the table with the timesteps, as in Figure 3.26.
Figure 3.26   
Select the List All Timesteps toggle to show all of the timesteps in the model. Use the arrows to navigate through the model’s timesteps. Select the desired timesteps by checking the box to the left of the timestep. Select the Set Selection button to apply your choices and update the summary area. The dialog now is similar to Figure 3.27.
Figure 3.27   
In this layout, the summary information is shown as the bottom row of the dialog. Again, the user can highlight specific portions to see the summary statistics and to initiate a plotting operation.
Save Configuration
The configuration can be saved using the Config, then Save As menu. This opens the Object Account Summary Configuration dialog, in which the user can specify a name for the configuration.
This configuration is saved with the model file. To apply the configuration to an Object Account Summary, use the Config menu and select the previously defined configuration name.
