The Unit System Editor Equivalencies tab lists equivalencies by commodity, class, unit type, and default value. You can sort the lists by clicking a column heading. Sort the lists in reverse order by clicking the column heading once more.

Please note that default commodities, types, units, and equivalencies cannont be deleted from the Unit System. However, you CAN edit or delete any commodities, types, units, or equivalencies you have created. Also, default DISPLAY names CAN be edited, but the default CODES cannot be edited.

 

Editing or deleting unit system data can cause unexpected behavior in other areas. Because in some database tables, EnergyCAP stores billing data based on unit conversions in place at the time of bill entry, modifications to the unit system may require running the cleanbill* process for historical bills.
