5.Make sure that you have an estimation method set where the LW group consists of either L, B, or D or a combination of these.  On the example below this is obtained by going to the menu Database->Administrator->Method Definition… and selecting the “Main Parameter” method and removing the Cb parameter (forth in the list) by selecting ‘-‘ in the droplist.  This leaves you with an estimation method LW=LBD.  Click OK to close this window.

6.Open the estimation window for the Lightship weight group.  Make sure you select the Method set you prepared in point 5 to activate this method.  Now you can do estimation of the lightweight and draw data from vessels in the cloud database by using filters the same way as the proprietary database.
