Overview: Working with Model Files

A Monarch Classic model file contains all of the definitions that you have created during a Monarch Classic session.

These include:

  • data extraction templates

  • external lookup parameters

  • field properties

  • filter definitions

  • sort and calculated field definitions

  • summary definitions

Models save work by allowing you to apply the same settings to a periodic report each time it is generated.



  • To save more information that is not included in a model, such as which report file or which database you opened, as well as the model file, you should use a project file.

  • Several default settings are also saved in each model file. Settings saved in a model file take precedence over the defaults; when the model is loaded, the settings in the model override the defaults. For a list of all Monarch Classic definitions and settings and where each is saved, see Settings.
