To check if the exported file from SimaPro 9 has platform IDs:
- Export the file as recommended here.
- After the download is done, open the file with NotePad (Excel is also possible, but not recommended as it can distort the file)
- In the opened file, scroll down to where you can see 'Emissions to air', 'Emissions to water' etc.
- If you use a generic library, which is available in the SimaPro online platform (see this article), for the input processes under 'Emission to..' there should be a code at the end of the line, as seen with the ammonia in the image below.
If you have this code for a few of the processes, you can be sure that the rest also has the appropriate platform IDs.
The reason you should have platform IDs is explained here.
