Customizing Result Variables 

You may customize WEAP's result variables (e.g., Unmet Demand or Inflows to Area) to some extent.  You are allowed to edit the title of a variable or hide it entirely.  Hiding unused variables can be a useful way to simplify a model's appearance, perhaps for display to stakeholders.  In the Result View, go to the Main Menu: Edit: Result Variable and choose Edit Name or Hide.  If you have changed the name of a variable and want to reset it to its original value, choose Edit: Result Variable, Reset Name to Default.  To unhide previously hidden variables, choose Edit: Result Variable, Unhide, and then choose the variable to show, or All Variables to unhide all previously hidden variables.  Note: result variables can still be used in calculations even when hidden (via the PrevTSValue function).

Note: Customizing result variables only applies to the current WEAP dataset.  If you want to customize variables in other datasets, you will need to do it separately for each one.

Separately, you can also choose which result variables to calculate and save for viewing in the Results View.  Turning off some results can save calculation time and disk space, especially for the results of some of the hydrology methods that have daily results (MABIA, Plant Growth Model).  To choose which variables to calculate and save, go to the Main Menu: Edit: Result Variable, Select Variables to Save.  You can also right click on the result variable selection box at the top of the Results View, and choose Select Variables to Save.  When a result variable is turned off, it will still appear in the Results View selection box list of results, but the name will be enclosed in parentheses, e.g., "( Supply Requirement )".  If you try to view it, WEAP will inform you that it is turned off and ask if you want to turn it on the next time the results are calculated.

Note: Hiding a variable is different from not calculating it.  When hidden, it will not appear on the Results View list of result variables, but it will still be calculated and saved, which means it can be referred to in data expressions using the PrevTSValue function.  Conversely, when a variable is not calculated and saved, it will still appear on the Results View list of result variables, but is not available in data expressions using PrevTSValue.

You may select one or more data variables for display among the built-in result variables in the Results View.  See Customizing Data Variables for more information.
