    I suspect on the 2013 event year you chose Gross Margin instead of Gross Sales when you entered the sales value. If the sales are total sales, you chose Gross Sales so that the software will only apply the margin portion of the sales to the retail sector. This is important as the production function and output per workers and all other industry relationships are based on gross margin. When you chose Gross Margin, the software has to assume that you have already margined your gross sales and are applying only margin. Hence a big (and incorrect) jump in employment.

    No, I chose Gross Sales because I'm looking for the impact of their sales. I entered the sales with a 3% increase from the year before and it gave me a huge jump in year 2013.

    k, I don't think any of the retail deflators jump by 13% from one year to the next, so you will need to zip up the model (appliance:\implan user data\models\xxxx.impdb where xxxx is the name you gave the model) and e-mail it to info@implan.com so I can look. Be sure to note the two scenarios that show the jump.

    Thank you Doug. I just sent the model and the data I was working from for you to review. Please let me know what I'm doing wrong. :) Thank you.

    The e-mail did not arrive. Do you have a size limit on e-mail attachments?
