Report and output files content

Hi,

 

I am trying to extract the time series for the simulated subcatchment runoff in a notepad readable file. As known, the .rpt file does not show the time series results and .out file is in a binary format. Is there a way to include the subcatchment runoff time series in the .rpt file or make the .out file readable?

 

Thanks

  • For the report function which you said below, do I put the statement in the .inp file? I have a [REPORT] section in my .inp file which is similar to the one you stated. Sorry for my ignorance as I am quite new to the software.

  • You probably have to set up a compatibility mode for the SWMM DOS engine in Windows 7.

  • Thanks for your advice.

     

    Does the SWMM 5 Dos Engine works on Windows 7? I seem to have a problem opening the DOS engine. The DOS window opens and then closes almost instantly.

    You can do both if you use the SWMM5 DOS program - you can get a time series of subcatchment, link and node data.

    If you use the SWMM 5 DOS Engine and the REPORT function with NODES ALL then you will get a text output file with all of the node data.  You can see an example at the bottom of this page.  The same for LINKS ALL or you can list each LINK on a separate line to get just the LINK information.
