Simulating Alternative Specific Design

Two questions abouts SMRT simulator:
1) How should I code Alternative Specific attribute for alternatives "other" alternatives? In design file there is 0 code, but simulator warns about interpolating 0 value.
2) How can I import weights to simulator? My study was run on "other party" software and imported as P&P to SSI then as *.cho to SMRT

For attributes that don't apply to the concept within SMRT simulations, type the level "NA" (not applicable".  Type just the two letters: NA

To import weights, use the File + Merge Variables within SMRT.  You should have the weights ready in a .csv file, with CASEID in the first column.  

Then, within SMRT Scenario Specification, you'll find a drop-down control on the left side that lets you choose a weighting variable (the one that you merged)
