In Macrobond, a 'calculated series' is the output series resulting from various analyses. An 'in-house' series is your own series that you decide to save and access via the application. Saving a calculation as an in-house series allows you to access and reuse the output of your calculations at a later date, without having to reproduce the calculations on the original data.
Let’s say you’ve applied the necessary calculations to the data and are ready to save the calculated output as a series. The first thing to do is to add a Time table as a branch of the analysis you want to save. Then, click on a series to select it and then right-click to open the context menu.
You have two options for saving:
- Save values as in-house series - the values will copied as a snapshot, meaning that the series will not be automatically updated in the future. It will be saved as an Account in-house.
- Save calculation as in-house series the underlying calculation is saved, allowing it to be updated automatically when new values are available. This is the option for creating calculated in-house series.
The next step is to fill in the basic, required information for the series:
- Location - to which account series should be saved
- Series name - unique code used to find series in the application
- Description - title of the time series
- Region, Category, Unit, Currency and Class
To access in-house series, go to Analytics or Browse tab and select the Account in-house database from the drop down menu. Remember to refresh the data tree to show the series you’ve just added.
You can add calculated in-house series to a file like any other in-house series and embed it with Document properties functionality.
The file in which calculated in-house series is saved (the one with My Calculated series node) is a source file and cannot be shared in that form. Before sharing it with anyone please delete that special node.
You can also save calculated in-house series from the start to your Department or Company account to share it with your colleagues.
To edit the settings of a series, go to the My series tab, select account and navigate to the series.
You can also find it from Analytics or Browse tab. In such case you need to navigate to series and in Actions ribbon select My series > Go to in-house series.
Click Edit to open the source document.
The source file will open as Calculated: name_of_file. Make changes to the calculations of your series, as you normally would, and remember to save the document when you close it. These changes will be reflected in any document containing that calculated series once you do so.
You can always add more calculation in-house series from an existing file. Go to My calculated series node and press Add. Fill in Series name and save file.
Due to technical reasons it's not possible to change calculated in-house location (standard in-house series can be moved). But you can open existing calculated file, duplicate (File > Duplicate) it and re-save in another place creating new calculated in-house series.
There are two ways how you can delete an in-house series:
