Hi, in 1.4, you indeed need economic flow properties for economic allocation, which are the same in any process where a flow is used. Therefore, we have implemented in newer versions of openLCA the possibility to enter costs and revenues for each input and output in a process, and these entries are used before any flow properties, for economic allocation. I would therefore recommend to switch to 1.6.
