  • I had problems with the files, here they are

    • swmm5.exe D:\swmm5.0.022\urban.inp D:\swmm5.0.022\urban.rpt
      pause

  • Do you have the following section in your model input file?

    [REPORT]
    INPUT NO
    CONTROLS NO
    SUBCATCHMENTS ALL
    NODES ALL
    LINKS ALL

    Here are the files I use and output which you can compare to your output

  • How to change the dates and times in a SWMM 5 input file in batch mode

    You can just use the start and stop dates and times to start and end your simulation.  

    Use VBA to make an input file with hotstart SAVE and USE

    Run the SWMM 5 DOS program saving the Link and Node information,

    Use VBA to read the output and make a new input file with new dates and times with the USE and SAVE Hotstart files switched 

    Repeat


    • This is how you use the batch file in SWMM 5 to make a Report 


      Step 1:  You make a bat file - here is a sample file that uses the swmm5.exe program 


      swmm5.exe Example1.inp  D:\swmm5.0.021\bob.rpt

      pause  



      Step 2:  Set up the Report Data in the input file


      [REPORT]

      CONTROLS NO

      NODES   ALL

      LINKS   ALL


      Step 3:  Run the program 




      Step 4:  Look at the RPT Output file for the node and link

      • I can't get the same result, I'll like to retrive the information as you have shown (by date and time). But I can only see kind of a summary report after the simulation, doing exactly what you suggest. I'm usign the last version of EPA SWMM, do this change something?

  • Note: How to Get the SWMM 5 GUI to recognize an already existing Report and Output File

    I found a way to see your results in SWMM 5.0.013. You need an ini file with the results flag turned on. The ini file can be very small - just three lines but once you have the Saved=1 flag on then when you open the GUI the graphs and output file icons will be turned on. An alternate method would be to have the flag automatically turned on the SWMM 5 GUI in FMAIN.PAS but you would have to recompile the GUI.

    // Reset status flags

    Uglobals.HasChanged := False;

    Uglobals.UpdateFlag := False;

    Uglobals.ResultsSaved := True; // This is normally False

     

    Here is the three line ini file that you need.

    [Results]

    Saved=1

    Current=1

    You will have to make an ini file for each input file name and each one will have an ini file extension

    The SWMM 5 GUI will

    · open up your input file,

    · find the results flag,

    · check for existence of the rpt and out files and then

    · find out the SWMM 5 version of the output file.

     

  • Subject: How to use SWMM 5 DOS to make an Output Table in the RPT file

    You can make tables of the node, link and Subcatchment output data in SWMM 5 if you use the DOS SWMM 5 program but not the Windows DLL. Step 1 is to create the DOS batch file, Step 2 is to select the nodes, links and subcatchments, Step 3 is to run the batch file and Step 4 is to view the RPT tables or extract the data to Excel. You can do this directly in the InfoSWMM and H2OMAP SWMM graphical user interfaces by using Run Manager, Step 5 to select the nodes, links and subcatchments andStep 6 to view the tables in the browser.

    Step 1. Make a Batch File to call the DOS SWMM 5

    swmm5.exe Example1.inp D:\swmm5.0.022\bob.rpt
    pause

    Step 2. Add the nodes, links and subcatchments tables you want to generate in the RPT file

    [REPORT]
    CONTROLS NO
    LINKS ALL
    NODES ALL
    SUBCATCHMENTS ALL

    Step 3. Run the Batch file

    Step 4. Extract the Tables from the RPT File of SWMM 5

    Step 5. InfoSWMM and H2OMAP SWMM dialog for selecting nodes, links and subcatchments for generating a detailed RPT filetable.

    Step 6. Sample InfoSWMM and H2OMAP SWMM RPT Tables if Report Options is used.
