search nexus for the data sets you need, sort by free, and then merge several data sets. FYI dummy processes are different than normal processes, and in my experience you have to do a lot of tweaking to get them to work properly. AFAIK you cant just drag and drop like normal processes

Thank you so much for the reply, it helped me so much  to clear my doubts.   

i had one more doubt regarding merging of databases like ecoinvent, elcd and exiobase. if you help me shed light on this one, i would be highly grateful.
