|Note||In Ecolego 6, transfer coefficients and transfers are merged into one block. You now define that a transfer should be multiplied by the source compartment by selecting the TC checkbox in the value page.|
Represents the transfer of quantities of materials between compartments. It defines the quantity of the materials that is subtracted from a source/sink or compartment block and added to a destination compartment or source/sink block.
Transfers can be made discrete (instantaneous) by assigning a discrete event.

|Note||Most block properties can be edited directly in the Blocks window.|
The block editor is shown by right-clicking the block in a window and selecting Edit. In the Blocks window, you can also show the block editor by selecting the block and clicking the button, or by double-clicking the right-most “validation” column of the block.
The block editor has three tabs:
This page lets you edit basic properties such as name, sub-system and base unit. See editing properties for more information.
|Note||When entering an expression, you can also enter names of objects that are not yet created and let Ecolego use automatic object creation to define them.|
Note that the dimension and index list of a transfer block is derived from the dimension and index lists of it’s source and target compartments. The transfer will only have the indices that are shared by the source and target.
Data - This table lets you specify the transfer expression and other index specific properties.
