Hi folks,

I am trying to add new flows whilst working with the process step. there I see only the elementary flows only, nothing else. I don't know why the database isn't reloading all the flows. 

kindly apprise pertaining to this. The image below is attached for reference.

You see only elementary flows since you imported only the ecoinvent LCIA methods; you should start from an inventory database (or, do everything from scratch yourself). The ecoinvent LCIA methods fit only to the ecoinvent database, so if you start from a different database you also need a different LCIA method package.

Thank you for your comment.

I am still unclear and yes I am new to this software. I am using ecoinvent database, I thought the impact assessment method will load itself in the package with this database. Now I see I will have to separately load that as well. Further, I have added inputs in the processes tab but when I model the graph, the flows doesn't show up in the tree diagram. It shows only the outputs!
