GPCM 12.2.2.16 Now Available!

RBAC is pleased to announce the release of GPCM 12.2.2.16. The release includes several important improvements and bug fixes, as seen below.

  1. The Database Compare tool can now use wildcards. When running Database Compare, you can now use wildcards such as *CO2* for Table selection. This will allow you to compare all tables where the name fits your wild card. In the prior example, *CO2*, any table containing ‘CO2’ would be examined. The wildcard indicator * may also be used at the beginning or end of the phrase, for example *CO2 or CO2*, which would find tables ending or beginning in ‘CO2’, respectively.
  2. GPCM now detects regional settings in code. MS Access is unable to properly translate dates in queries when using regional settings other than US standard formatting, such as 12/1/2021 (Month/Day/Year). GPCM now resolve these date problems internally, so users will no longer need to change their regional settings to accommodate Access.
  3. GPCM now includes a generalized Excel import button. We have added an import button that is modeled on our Excel Export button. Like our export button, the import button will attempt to import a spreadsheet into the currently open form. Using this feature will require that your Excel matches the fields of the target table. If you experience any difficulty with using this, please contact RBAC for assistance.
  4. GPCM can now rename or copy linked database from within GPCM’s Database menu. This feature works for both single and multi-file databases.
  5. We have added Carbon Emissions reporting to the Consumption Summary report. In the report you will find a new button which, when pressed, shows how much carbon is being emitted by each category. This toggles the entire report back and forth between Gas Consumption and Carbon Emissions, and works with all of the features on the form, including aggregations, daily/total toggle, and graphing.
  6. We have improved the Demand Case Builder by adding a Comments field. To better record your changes, you will now be able to add comments to the Demand Adjustment records in the Price Index tab.
  7. The Demand Case Builder now retains more data about your demand case. It can now recall which states and sectors were selected, as well as your base case and the forecast start date of a demand case you have built with it. This will make it easier to reproduce exactly the same demand case from the builder when needed.
  8. The Demand Case Builder now includes better handling of CO2 prices in the curves. The updated builder algorithms extends demand curves upward to better handle higher wholesale prices which result from including higher future CO2 prices.
  9. GPCM will now use more threads in Batch Runs. Earlier versions of GPCM ran batches in serial, assigning all available threads to one scenario at a time. When running several long or full length scenarios, this works fine, but for shorter scenarios we ended up with unused threads. GPCM will now run as many scenarios as it can simultaneously, dividing the available threads among them.
  10. The Supply Case Builder has a better warning message for missing data. When rows for certain years are found to be missing from your Outlook, the message prompting you to allow GPCM to add defaults or delete the Outlook was confusing. We’ve replaced it with a more verbose and understandable prompt.
  11. We have updated the state, census region, and country values for LNG Export customer locations. In the Location table, the Customer Locations for the LNG Export Terminals now show the states, census regions, and countries of the terminals, rather than our LNGEXP-ATL, LNGEXP-GLF, and LNGEXP-PAC. This allows us to include LNG Exports in the Demand Summary when aggregating up to State, Census Region, or Country.
  12. We fixed a bug in the Supply Case Builder that created bad LNG curves. We found that when creating a new Supply Case with forecasts starting in the month of July, LNG wasn’t being created properly.
  13. We fixed a bug in the Supply Case Builder when importing a Supply Outlook from curves. When importing a new outlook from the existing curves in a database, the Price Index records were not created. If these records do not exist in the case being imported, we now pull in a base set of indexes.
  14. We fixed a graphing bug in the CO2 Market Summary report. We found that price was being graphed with wrong unit, which also caused unintended effects with the unit toggle button.
