The External model process step can be used to link a process level in another QPR ProcessGuide model to the current model.

 

mouse_24 Exercise 54: Use the External model process step to attach a QPR ProcessGuide  (Xpress) model on a local hard drive to your current model.

 

BTN_AR131. Create a new model.
BTN_AR132. From the Tool Palette, select the External model button and click on the flow chart to draw an External model process step and give the process step a name.
BTN_AR133. Either double-click the External model process step or right-click on it and select Set Process Step Properties. The Process Step Properties dialog will open.
BTN_AR134. Click on the External Model tab.
BTN_AR135. Click the Browse button. The Select Document file dialog will open.
BTN_AR136. In the dialog, browse your hard drive and select a QPR ProcessGuide model and click Open.
BTN_AR137. To be able to open the model in another computer, select Embedded information. This will attach the selected model as a part of the current model, so that it is saved with the current model.
BTN_AR138. Click OK to close the dialog.

 

Note that because the embedded information is stored with the current model, the size of the model may increase greatly if you embed a large model into the current model.
